If you feel like learning more about wine in a casual setting (wine crates as seats), you can join the Wine Circles for the informative yet interesting sessions. The topics include the Best of Sparkling Wines and Champagne, Think Pink: All About Rose’s, King Cab- The Ruler of Reds and Cool Wines for Hot Weather. These Wine Circle sessions are free as part of the event and are on a first come first serve basis.

You can check out the video from the last year event here.

If you are interested in this, you can buy the tickets from here. The ticket’s price is 45 SGD but if you buy it today (10 Oct), there’s a great promotional price of just 10 SGD. Hurry up because this promotion is only valid on 10 Oct (as part of the 10th Anniversary).

Beer, Beer and More Beer at Beerfest Asia

beerfest asia beer exhibitors

As advertised, there were tons of beer from all around the world at Beerfest Asia 2017. Thing is, even though they tell you that there’s going to be 500 different brands of beer, it’s humanely impossible to try all of them. The very thought of more beer frightens me to be honest.

But here are a couple of pointers for the next Beerfest:

  • It’s going to be sweltering hot so dress accordingly
  • Never drink the same beer more than once (you’ve got to try other stuff!)
  • If you want to sample all the crowd favorites, do not go on the last day
  • However, if you’re looking for value deals and freebies, go on the last day
  • Grab a bite to eat 2 hours prior to your arrival at Beerfest because food is such a waste of space

Brands to look out for

As much as the very mention of beer makes me feel a little sick, I have to admit that some brands stood out for me last night.

beerfest asia Swan Lake Koshihikari Lager

Swan Lake Koshihikari Lager by Epicurean Nomads

This pale lager is made from Koshihikari Rice grains in Japan, which also happens to be one of the most premium rice on the market. It contains just but a mere 5% alcohol but don’t let that prevent you from appreciating its fine tastes.

By using fermented rice, this beer gives off a strong, sweet sake-like aroma (I love sake). As for the taste, it was a beautiful blend of light, sweet notes and a refreshing bitterness.  Somehow, I just kept wanting more!

The bottle is wrapped in a piece of paper that doubles up as its label as well. Talk about being unique!

In a short conversation with Epicurean Nomads‘ Director, Mr Charles Ng, he mentioned that they distribute this beer to most Japanese Michelin starred restaurants in Singapore. Talk about ATAS!

Schneider Weisse Mein Aventinus by Beer Cellar Asia

Next up, a dark wheat beer by Schneider Weisse. Considered as Bavaria’s oldest wheat dopplebock, this beer packs a punch with 8.2% alcoholic content. It has enough malt content in it to be considered a meal on its own!

Taste wise, you can expect a strong sweetness to hit your taste buds upon contact but miraculously, it transitions into a rich and creamy after taste. It’s also dangerous that you can’t really taste the alcohol in this one because it’s relatively high (trust me, you’ll suffer later if you don’t look out!)

Beer Cellar Asia happens to be the exclusive distributor for Schneider Weisse in Singapore. Here’s a list of bars they distribute to so you can have a taste in the future!

For the life of me, I couldn’t find the Mentaiko Quails Eggs so that was a little disappointing but I did win a free half-pint of beer after sinking 2 out of 3 footballs in humongous cups!

We also ate a couple of hot dogs and oogled at female DJs spinning. I think one of them smiled at me but I think I was pretty smashed by then, might have been dreaming.
