Singapore, 14 August 2019 – Following the success of its first overseas edition in Shandong in October last year, Beerfest Asia is moving to Chengdu from 23 to 31 August.
Over 20 exhibitors - including Mikkeller, Brewdog, Paulaner, RedDot BrewHouse, Oranjeboom, Tuborg, Singha and Brooklyn - will showcase more than 200 beers from around the world at the Chengdu Outdoor Music Park during the 9-day beer fiesta.
The event will also feature local bands and DJs and a variety of food choices, including the local Mala cuisine. It is in line with Beerfest Asia organiser Sphere Exhibits’ expansion into the region with the same format, but on a smaller scale and with localised entertainment. Sphere Exhibits is a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore Press Holdings (SPH).
Beerfest Asia Chengdu is expected to welcome 50,000 visitors over 9 days.
Chengdu was selected as the next Beerfest Asia host city due to its burgeoning craft beer scene with over 20 taprooms and 3 craft breweries in the city.
Mr Ian Lim, Beerfest Asia Festival Director, said: “Chengdu is renowned as a cultural and music city with an emerging craft beer scene, and it has been on our radar to host Beerfest Asia there for quite a while. Fortunately, we are able to find a great partner in Sichuan Ruifeng Culture & Communications who shares our vision to bring an international beer festival to the city and provide beer and music lovers with an experience like no other in Western China.”
Beerfest Asia Chengdu will be followed by an edition in Dongxing. There is also one planned for Bali Indonesia next August.
Date: 23 - 31 August 2019
