Two reasons: 1) The freshest beer on tap; and 2) Freeeeee like a beeeeeeeeeeee!
For a major brewery in Malaysia, it only makes sense for Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB) to have their own pub in their brewery backyard. Named The Tavern (I’d like to believe for really obvious reasons), it serves as as GAB’s training ground for bartenders (because knowing how to pour the perfect pint is a mastery course). Visitations to The Tavern is also a staff perk.
So I was quite stoked to be invited to the GAB Tavern Oktoberfest Party along with 50 GAB Facebook fans who won some kind of contest to be there. There were Oktoberfest girls, the Bavarian-style Oompah Band (rumour has it that they are as English as scones), games, food, fun people and most importantly, fresh tasting beer.
Nah, fun people:
Me with a giant Kilkenny cutout, in serious contention to replace Clive Owen as the man of my dreams:
Awesome right? Pleasures that money can’t buy… :)
