Lets get down to earth! Beer Tasting

HKBC-50
Not sure if you have notice that there are more craft beer serve in Hong Kong’s bars and people starting to appreciate the diversity of beer offering here in the City! With that thought, we are thinking why not do some sophisticated beer tasting of our own (the idea is mostly stolen from HK BREWCRAFT)!
HK Brewcraft is co-founded by one of our UIUC alum, Angus IpClass of 2007, and yes he is bringing us this event to share some loves for craft beer and home brew!
Come join the UIUC Beer Appreciation Workshop!
Date: 5 June 2015 (Friday)
Time: 6:30pm
Cost per head: HK$200
What do you get: min 4 types of craft beer per person
Email Us today so we can sign you up!!
