Headed over to Brussels Beer Cafe in Jaya One, Petaling Jaya for the media preview of Brewfest Malaysia 2012. The event will be held from 17 to 19 May 2012 at Publika, Solaris Dutamas and will feature loads of imported and craft beers that are not easily available in Malaysia such as Timmermans, J.Boag & Sons, Chimay, Triple Karmeliet, Abbaye de Forest, Trappistes, Yona Yona Ale, Hitachino Nest, Thornbridge, Inveralmond, 3 Ravens, and Mornington.
“For the first time in history, Malaysians get to try over 50 types of premium and craft brews, where most are not readily available in the local market. It is only at BREWFEST 2012 that you get such golden opportunity to revel in the rare yet exquisite brews, be it bottled, canned or draught, from Germany, Belgium, England, Scotland, Australia, Japan and the United States. Thanks to our sponsors and partners- Warsteiner, Publika, Salty Customs and Envisage Events – who believed in our efforts in presenting a unique gathering of quality brews, we were able to bring together these exclusive brands to showcase their products at BREWFEST 2012. In addition, you will also get to savour all kinds of delectable menus that serve as excellent accompaniments to the beers!” commented Cheryl Loi, Brand and Marketing Director of Loile BDMP and organiser of the festival.

Now I was definitely not full after that microscopic meal. Good thing the organisers knows that happy media are more inclined to give good coverage so we continued the evening with some real food!
