Drink: Craft Beer in Malaysia

Wonderful weekend of craft beer tasting.

Taps Beer Bar sells a variety of craft beer in draft and bottle. As it was our first time there, we were not quite sure what to order so the waitress recommended the tasting set. 


What we tasted: 

JB Perfect Porter
Weihenstephan WeissbierBrewdog Punk IPA
Brewdog 5 AM Saint
JB Easy English
Rogue Brutal IPA
Kiasu Stout

Ales & Lagers in Publika.

A small shop with only 2 tables, there are open shelves and fridges filled with craft beers providing interesting visual and making it easier for customer to browse and choose.

The friendly owner recommended some good stuff for us:

Yoho Brewing Suiyoubi No Neko

Rogue Dead Guy Ale
Kooinda Valhalla Golden Ale
Rogue Buckwheat Ale
Magic Hat #9
Gordon Biersch Czech Style Pilner
Rogue Juniper Pale Ale
Magic Hat Encore

It was a refreshing experience to try craft beer. I was getting a bored with the usual commercial brews that we always get in Malaysia.

I plan to go back again to try, try, try!
