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
