**We'll be adding more details as we get closer to the festival date, so stay tuned!**
Expect a bunch of new exciting new features this year, including four themed areas, a shisha garden, craft beer cocktails, and a bigger games area than ever before!
As with years past, we'll have live bands, DJs, awesome food from some of the best joints in Hong Kong, beer games, giant beer pong, lucky draw prizes, and maybe even a surprise or two.
Brand new this year, we'll have a 2,000sqft outdoor shisha garden, with colourful lights and beanbag chairs, sponsored by the Cloud 93 team. An artist's mock-up of the shisha garden:
Craft Beer Cocktails
For the first time ever, we'll have craft beer cocktails at the festival! Get an exclusive preview of KWOON by The Woods, the team's new artisanal cocktail bar opening in late November.
Collaborating with Young Master Ales, look out for three Beertopia exclusive cocktails, including the "Go-Go-Gose," a vodka-based drink featuring the refreshingly sour Cha Chaan Teng Gose with fresh guava flavours and subtle notes of delicate rose; and the “Rye So Serious”, a complex bourbon-based cocktail made with the oaky Rye on Wood balanced out with hints of orange peel and citrus.
Showcasing the world's first artisanal canned cocktails, they'll have an on-site canning machine, so you can take home your own exclusive Beertopia designed cans!
Come hungry! We've got fantastic bites from twenty awesome restaurants. All food can be purchased directly using cash.
We'll have DJs from Sol Passion Music and a whole lineup of awesome bands rocking the main stage each day!
Additionally, the HK Beer Championship awards presentation will take place at 9:00PM on Friday, November 18 at the main stage. Come check out the winners from the best local breweries!
