Do you like yours sharp and citrusy, or bright and floral? Thin and sweet, or rich and velvety? However you like your brew, you’ll find it and more at The Better Beer Festival 2016, which returns for the fifth time this 7-8 October.
Organised by MyBeer and Tiffin and held at Publika (White Box and The Square), the two-day event lets you drink your way through more than 100 unique craft beers from 10 countries while enjoying live music and other activities designed for beer lovers.

Complementing the brews is Tiffin’s Chowdown, featuring a wide range of beer-inspired food specially created by some of Kuala Lumpur’s best-loved eateries. Sink your teeth into Cantina Moderna’s ale fondue mac & cheese and porter braised brisket; work up an appetite with Shucked’s laksa mussels, clams and sashimi; have your just desserts with The Ice Cream Bar’s beer sorbet and ice-creams, or Bacon It’s bourbon cream cheese chocolate cupcakes. Want some heat? Get your dose from Fiercer and Bakarlah.
Have questions about your favourite tipple? Sign up for the Meet The Brewers event (8pm-9pm, 7 October & 5pm-6pm, 8 October) at White Box, where top regional brewers will be available to chat and clue you in on all things beer.
