Over 6 and 7 October the Square at Publika will feature kicking live music, awesome food vendors (pizzas, burgers, hotdogs, oysters…perfect companions for a beer), and tables and chairs for drinkers to get comfortable and enjoy their chosen brew; and in White Box the highlighted craft beers from countries like the US, UK, Japan, Australia, Denmark, Belgium, Germany, New Zealand, Thailand, and Vietnam will be set up and ready to serve you. Note that only those 18 and above are allowed to enter into White Box.

In addition to that there will be other activities like a Beer Appreciation Session, a Meet-The-Brewers talk with regional brewers, as well as a Craft Beer Cocktail Class by renowned KL gin bar Pahit (featuring a specially made Rum Bubble Milk Tea).
RM25 will get you a voucher for one 300ml beer. Alternatively, a three taster voucher will cost you RM25 for three 100ml samples.

Thirst Club members can use the special code on the Eventbrite ticket page, and only people with this code can access the early bird promo for RM200 vouchers and two complimentary festival glasses.
