For six months, we're collaborating with award-winning craft beer brand Brooklyn Brewery. Last month, on 25th September, our third edition with them took place at MEJA Kitchen & Bar at Sunway Velocity.
About 27 guests turned up at our intimate gathering where Carlsberg's Commercial Development Manager for Craft & Specialty Thomas Teo guided guests through the food and craft beer pairing experience. He also explained how Brooklyn Brewery started out in 1988 in Williamsburg and how it became what it is today.
Two of Brooklyn Brewery's beers: the Brooklyn Lager and the Brooklyn East IPA, were paired with some of MEJA's best dishes. Guests were served the beers first, so they could distinguish the distinct flavours of the two beers. The lager has a firm malt centre supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma while the East IPA has a clean, bold balance and a piney aroma. For a deeper appreciation, there were jars of ingredients placed at each table, encouraging guests to touch and smell them.
Shortly after, guests were treated to a show of MEJA's chef slicing the mouth-watering platter of lamb rack that was served with their Pan Seared Hokkaido Scallop Skewers. The pairing for the night included MEJA's Sticky Chicken Wings and Cheesy Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers.
If you missed out on this edition, the outlet is running the promotion until 30th November 2018 while stocks last.
