Several unique beers will make their Singapore debut, and their first foray into the Asia markets right here at Beerfest Asia. These include Blue Sky Pilsner (4.5% alcohol), an award-winning beer brewed in traditional Czech-style by Blue Sky Brewery, which is based in Cairns, Australia. Brought in by Vespucci and Sons International Grocers, it is made with imported Premium Saaz hops for an aromatic and full-flavoured experience. There are also two new brews by German brewery Wunderbar – Wunderbar Pilsner (5% alcohol) and Alcohol-free Wunderbeer which offer consumers a fresh but yet crisp and light taste that differs from typical draft beers.
For a more unconventional and revolutionary beer taste, exhibitor Beerstyle Distribution will be bringing in USA-based Rogues Ales’ Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry, and Chocolate Ale. This type of beer is best consumed when paired up with doughnuts and other sweet desserts. This ale is only available exclusively at Beerfest Asia 2014 and nowhere else in Singapore.
Tribute bands debuting at Beerfest Asia 2014 include “Ice Cold Chilli Peppers” and “nOasis” from Australia, the land down under.
This year will also see the return of popular acts such as Queen tribute band “Killer Queen”, a perennial favorite at all Beerfest Asia events. Back by popular demand, it will enthrall with its full costume and instrument presentation to reproduce the original band’s signature sounds and stage presence.
