The Craft Beer Shop, Seremban - HandCraft Beer

8 Feb 2016 - Got to know a long time photographer, David Ng, where he used to do event photography shooting in G6 club, opened his own handcraft beer in Seremban. Now what is it so special with handcraft beer to be compared with the commercialized beer like Carlsberg, Tiger, Guinness Stout?

A traditional craft brewer are normally small, independent, and traditional. Craft beers tell you a story from its origin country, seems like bringing in ingredients that we haven't taste elsewhere. Craft brewers normally face many challenges including entering the consumer market, cost of raw materials and ingredients and tax.

You can drink more than 100 kinds of craft beers sourced from the finest, independent micro-breweries from all over the world in The Craft Beer Shop by David Ng.

Shelf display with a glow of light, showcasing many handcraft beer bottles and wines bottles from all around the world. Just like a compelling art on the shelf.

You have to walk upstairs, and it is smoking area, therefore, elderly, OKU and children are not advisable to go to the secret lounge.

I wanted something similar with HoeGarden, and David recommended me to her - Blanche De Bruxelles / Manneken Pis Belgian White. Blanche is from Belgium, she is white. Pale yellow with white head. Hmm, the scent of white grape. light and smooth texture together as you sip. Perfect white girl. Oops, not sure if it's a female or a male!

Please meet our craft beer family that we have chosen along:

  • Adnams Ghost Ship (sound spooky) - inspiration from Adnams 600-year-old haunted pub, The Bell. Brewed with a selection of malts - Pale Ale, Rye Crystal and Cara. Citra, and a blend of other American hop varieties to create some great citrus flavours. Adnams from UK.
  • Adnams SouthWole Dry Hopped Lager - Brewed with Pilsner malt, This golden lager is light, crisp and refreshing with subtle malty flavours and a super hoppy aroma of tropical fruits, citrus and passionfruit. Adnams from UK.
  • Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale | Kiuchi Brewery - Complex sake like flavors with malt sweet notes. Hints of strawberries in the nose and palate. An intriguing mix of sake, malt , and bitter notes in the finish. Surprised how sake can mix well with beer. Hitachino from Japan.
  • Hitachino Nest Lager - Hitachino Nest Lager is a bottom fermented beer with light color.Please enjoy the well-balanced taste of malt and light flavor of hops. Hitachino from Japan.

Most beer contains 5-8% of alcohol while some claim since beer is made of malt, it is suitable for vegetarian people! Price range is RM 20-30.

Each individual beer brand is one of a kind, sharing a history of where is it from. You get to see each bottle of handcraft beer displays the creativity and passion of its maker and the complexity of its ingredients.

David had a quick chat with me, sharing some basic info of the differences between craft beers and the normal beer. Asking him why does he didn't display a signboard indicating his shop. He says he prefer to have his place to be mystery hidden in a relaxing lounge. Want to see how big is the lounge area? indoor air-conditioned lounge area, with relaxing sofa and chairs and coffee table.
