What was the first beer you tried?
Tooheys lager at a bar in Sydney – I remember thinking it was terrible and telling my friends it tasted like regret. Funnily enough, it has become my go-to beer when I’m at bars!
When did you start to appreciate the taste of beer?
Definitely after I went to the Two Birds Brewing launch event with my sister last year. She gave me a rundown of the differences between each of their core range of beers, and that’s when I began learning to appreciate the various flavours.
What attracts you to a beer?
I enjoy trying local beers, as they’re often brewed with something special. I’m still pretty new to the scene, so I generally ask for recommendations. If not, I tend to go for a less bitter, lighter and fruitier style, such as a wheat beer.
How do you see the Hong Kong beer scene changing?
As a city, Hong Kong is quick to catch onto new trends – and I think beers are no exception. It’s really tough going back to commercial lagers after trying a locally brewed amber ale.
