The Hong Kong International Beer Awards is now firmly established as the premier awards recognising the best beers available in Hong Kong’s restaurants and bars.
The event, now in its fourth year, received over 250 entries. Each beer was tasted blind with the judges having no knowledge of what it was or where it came from.
Little Valley’s Python IPA won its category in the Organic Beers.
Other winners included another Saltaire Brewery, Brew Dog, and Australia’s Feral Brewing Company.
Hong Kong is one of the most dynamic, fast-paced vibrant cities in the world and as such is has one of the most diverse and exciting night-life scenes in the world. But for all that choice when it comes to drinking beer in Hong Kong the choice is still very limited. With the exception of a small handful of specialist bars there is rarely a choice of more than five or six beers available in any given outlet.
The aim of the Hong Kong International Beer Awards is both to educate the consumer of the wide variety of different beers and to encourage the licensed trade to increase the options available to their customers.
In short the Hong Kong International Beer Awards aims to educate, inspire and raise awareness of the wonderful world of BEER!
