If this doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what will! Presenting you the latest ultimate bar in town, also known as Craft Brews. They are so advanced that they even have a solid working Twitter account, so do FOLLOW them for LOTS of FREEBIES and DISCOUNTS!
Crafty Craft Brews offers beer connoisseurs a whole new drinking and dining experience, starting with their international microbrewery look, yet maintaing a chic, casual and cosy setting. Looking at the place, it probably fits around 45 people comfortably, perfect for a relaxing corporate evening out!
There’s also an additional space outdoors for those who prefer to wine and dine al fresco. It’s huge capacity outside allows for up to a further 88 seats in total. All will enjoy not only scrumptious non-halal food to go with their home-brewed beers, but the variety of these rare, unique unfiltered beers makes Craft Brews something out of the ordinary, at least in Malaysia!
Utilizing microbreweries around the region, Craft Brews serves up to four draft and 10 bottled beer selections, where two coloured beers from Singapore-based Reddot Brewhouse will be the Restaurant’s signature, premium beers. They are called the Monster Green Lager and the English Ale respectively, served fresh on tap, yum! But more on that later.
The place looks awesome, take a look at the wall decorations! Talk about beer-education ;D
There, I told you they had plenty of taps. Crazy Shit.
Oh did I tell you being invited also entitles you to a set of ingredients needed to brew your very own home-brewed beer, among other perks (ie LOOK AT MY VIP CARD!!!)
THEN THE MEGA POP CAME IN! Look at them beautiful towers… don’t you wish you own them? I know you do 😉 Well, at least Jessica does haha!
This is when the free flow starts and everyone sings in tune together 😀
Food. OMG. NON HALAL FOOD. Let me try and decipher for you what’s in those plates:
1. Back Ribs – complete
with three kinds of style: Honey Mustard, sweet Malt and Maple Glaze, or tangy and smoky Tex-Mex Hickory BBQ Sauce!
2. Caribbean Spice Chicken and corn cobs, served with yummy portions of home-made wedges (freaking good!!)
3. Lemongrass Butter Grilled Dory Fillet (halal, but nevertheless yummylicious!)
4. Lamb Shank. Word.
April Yim decided to get something different. Here’s the Scampi Aglio Olio pasta which was pretty good. Luckily we were too full otherwise we’d have their desserts which sounded pretty yummy to us! Read:
1. Chocolate-filled Banana Fritters
2. Cinnamon Apple Pie
3. Papaya and Grape Melange
4. Premium ice cream flavours~!
The aformentioned #porkgang, who wiped the servings clean. Thanks guys.
Look at the colouriffic glasses, awesome pawesome aren’t they? You’ll also get a good look at April Yim‘s lips here, now don’t go getting any thoughts hehe…
The day was later spent with some games among others, with free vouchers to give out. Here’s Shaolin Tiger doing the tasting test… and I don’t think he got it right, not with the number of beer selections that was available! I swear I could taste the Spirulina though, which is the ingredient contained in the Monster Green Lager, which is, well, green.
It was truly a fantastic evening for us, thanks to the people at @craftbrews for having us around. It was kind of the first time seeing different groups of blogosphere all congregating at the same place. I will surely visit this place again 🙂
And if you do visit it, do call me along! Why? Cause i have this pretty awesome VIP discount card that allows me 30% discount on food items! (not on drinks, sorry :P) and best of all, I’m supposedly the only one that has the card that’s valid till 31st of December 2010!! How cool is that haha… not even the REAL beer drinkers nor the #porkgang has them. *does the victory dance
