Bored of drinking the usual commercial beers, or just looking for something different to do on your night out? Well then, why not try out the underrated craft beers in Klang Valley!
What exactly is craft beer? Well, in simple terms, it’s beer that’s brewed using traditional methods and in small breweries that are more intimate and ultimately produces a drink that emphasises flavour.
Commercial beers tend to focus more on producing lagers and pilsners, but craft beers can encompass anything from ales, pale ales and India Pale Ales (IPA), to stouts, porters and sours.
Here are some great places you can visit to indulge in a nice glass of delicious craft beer around Klang Valley!
1. The Great Beer Bar
Proudly boasting more than 70 different types of craft beers from around the world, this casual and modern bar has been making a name for themselves in the industry.
What’s more, the bar also serves some tempting bar snacks that perfectly complement the bottled and craft beers on tap. Guess I know where I’m headed to this weekend!
Address: 86G Jalan SS21/62, Damansara Utama, 47400, Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Opening Hours: 3pm to 1am daily
2. Ales & Lagers
Publika is known as the happening spot to chill or try out the many eateries that have mushroomed in the complex. Tucked away in a little corner is this great craft beer bar with a dizzying array of beers waiting for you to discover.
Take the road off the beaten track and you will be pleasantly surprised by what this somewhat-hidden bar has in store for you. The owner who helms this establishment is the same brains behind The Great Beer Bar, so you know you’re in good hands!
