The Better Beer Festival takes place over a span of two days featuring all things beer. Expect to try craft beers from all over the world (including Vietnam, Denmark and Japan) as well as beer-inspired food. More importantly, you get to increase your beer knowledge through Meet the Brewers and Beer Appreciation sessions. The beer garden and live music performances are open to all for free, but get the Starter Pack (RM70), which grants you a welcome beer, three craft beer tasters plus three sampler-sized bites.
Meet-The-Brewers sessions will be held at the White Box on both Friday and Saturday from 8pm to 9pm. For the Beer Appreciation Session, make sure you get tickets (RM60) early as it's limited to only 20 pax; this is happening on Saturday Oct 8 from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.
The craft beers that you’ll find at the festival are extensive, and they include Hitachino Nest Beer (Japan), Pasteur Street Brewery (Vietnam), 2 Brothers Brewery (Australia), Amager Bryghus (Denmark), Delirium (Belgium), Echigo Brewery (Japan), Gypsy Inc. (Denmark), Harviestoun Brewery (Scotland), Prickly Moses (Australia), Quiet Deeds (Australia), Rogue Ales (USA), Tuatara Brewery (New Zealand), Yo-Ho Brewing Company (Japan), and more.
For grub, the festival's culinary partner Tiffin offers the Chowdown, a wide-range of beer-infused and beer-pairing food. Tuck into The Ice Cream Bar's beer sorbet and ice creams, Shucked's laksa mussels, clams and sashimi, as well as goods from Fiercer, Ticklish Ribs & 'Wiches, Wok It and others.
