To the uninformed, (even my Belgian friend didn't know), Martens Brewery has been around for more than 260 years since 1758, and is today helmed by the eighth generation of the Martens family, and records sales of over 4 million hectolitres (which is a heco alot I'm sure) beer every year.
Dotted with individual stalls serving the various beers at Aqua, the poolside bar at MO, we were given a "passport" to guide us through the different types.
I started off with the Kristoffel White, a pale, white yellow unfiltered beer. Very light and mild, almost sweet. A bit too light for me.
My passport as you can see was suitably well worn and used.
Back to the event itself, well, yes, there were mermaids in the house too. One was supposed to stand in the circle next to the mermaid and toss your gold goin into the pool and make a wish.
Could there be a lovelier sight than seeing these babies nestled in a container of ice?
The Sezoens (I assume it's a subsidiary brand), top fermented dry hopped, definitely will make you a hoppy camper. Again, for me personally, I totally preferred the darker more foreboding looking ones.
The first coin thrower....deserves a photo lah.
Juxtaposed against the Kuala Lumpur skyline at sunset, such a glorious colour!!!
These craft beers should be retailing by now in local supermarkets and selected bars.
