Young Master x House 1881 afternoon tea

Afternoon tea meets craft beer
Afternoon tea is getting a wild new makeover thanks to Young Master and House 1881. The award-winning Hong Kong craft beer brand has teamed up with the Tsim Sha Tsui cultural landmark in a totally unexpected way, serving barrel-aged imperial stouts with Café Parlour's classic afternoon tea set on April 27 and 28.
Those beers include two versions of Hak Mo Sheung, an imperial stout aged for six months in bourbon barrels from Kentucky's Heaven Hill distillery. One has been infused with ancho and panca chillies from South America, giving it a spicy kick that cuts through the beer's smokiness and richness, while the other is a tried-and-true barrel-aged chocolate stout. These big, bold beers will be paired with Café Parlour's signature tea set — scones, opera cakes, gateaus and more. Who knows? Maybe beer and crumpets will be Hong Kong's next big thing.
The afternoon tea set costs $588 for two persons, with an additional $100 for four 150ml pours of the two beers.
