Hong Kong gears up for Beertopia

Marking Hong Kong’s undiminished  thirst for quality craft beer – especially its own – the city’s largest beer festival will return in October.

BeertopiaThis year’s event takes place from 9-10 October at Central’s Harbourfront where beer-loving attendees can sample over 500 different beers from across the world, including 33 from Hong Kong’s own beloved local breweries including Young Master, Hong Kong Beer Co, Moonzen, Black Kite, Tipping Point, Kowloon Bay and Mak’s Brewery Company.

In addition to the festival itself, HK Beer Week is a “citywide celebration of craft beer” promotions where mixologists across HK will mix up craft beer cocktails during 2-10 October.

This is the fourth Beertopia festival since 2012 and the organisers are hoping to top last year’s turnout of 11,000 people.

Over the last few years, Hong Kong has seen an explosion of interest in the “craft beer movement,” with many bars around town offering craft beers exclusively and an upsurge in the number of home-grown microbreweries.

Organiser of Beertopia, Jonathan So said: “I went to a craft beer festival in Japan where they only served domestic beer and it was almost impossible to get these certain beers anywhere else expect in the local breweries. The variety, size and flavours from local breweries all around the world, and their lack of availability gave me the inspiration behind Beertopia. Hong Kong has a fantastic array of beers on offer and we have the customers’ evolving tastes to match.”

Tickets are available from the Beertopia website.
