Craft Brews is a brewhouse and restaurant located right smack in the heart of Mutiara Damansara, where Tesco, the Curve and Ikea is located. When i first heard about the place, it immediately sounded like a real cool place. The logo helped give the good impression to Craft Brews just it’s name specialises in highly crafted beer and also food that will leave you wanting more.
Craft Brews is the only place where you will get to taste Rogue beer. A highly brewed beer and once you’ve gone Rogue you won’t turn back to your normal beers or rather as the professionals would put it – commercialised beer: beer thats brewed for the masses. Crafted beers are limited in numbers and also have seasons, meaning they won’t always be made available.
I had the wonderful pleasure of being invited to try first hand two of the new Rogue beers that Craft Brews was going to bring down from the States.
Here I am with Juniper Pale Ale and Mocha Porter
Juniper Pale Ale has been a winner for the World Beer Championships for the 2010 and 2011.
The Turkey was named the official bird of the Rogue Nation in August 2007. To commemorate the momentous occasion, Rogue Juniper Pale Ale was dedicated to “the turkey in each of us.” Juniper Pale Ale, like all Rogue products preserves water by using more ingredients, contains no chemicals, additives or preservatives and uses Free Range Coastal Water. A saffron colour beer with a smooth malt balance, floral aroma with a dry spicy finish from whole juniper berries.
If you’re not a stout fan like myself, then Mocha Porter, will completely change your mind. 2010 World Beer Awards Gold winner of the 2010 Australian International Beer Awards. A ruddy brown beer that has a bittersweet balance of malt and hops with a light cream finish. Dedicated to the chocolate lover in each of us. Mocha Porter was once known as New Porter, in honor of the town of Newport, Oregon and home of Rogue Ales.
That’s only two of the beers, there are still 6 more to go! I personally can’t wait to try the Chocolate Stout!
I really love the interior of Craft Brews.
Check out all Rogue beers on display. 99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer….
and you have to adore the interesting “drink” quotes they have on their table mats!
Check out the video, when i tried out the two Rogue Beers. The way i drink beer will never be the same again. hehe
