If u gonna work overtime downtown, this is the spot, at least until Wed (Dec 16). Overtime (2161-0246 / 012 233-1816) is a new joint that specializes in a German beer known as Starker. It’s known as a ‘fresh beer’, meaning its made and consumed within a week.
Checked it out on Sunday. A pint normally costs $30, while a barrel is $345. BUT, from Dec 10-16, as i said here before, it’s DIRT CHEAP. A pint is $8 NETT, a barrel is only $80 NETT for 5 liters, ie 10 pints.
To make sure, we had three barrels.
They come in very chilled wooden kegs, sent to your table still sealed.
You get the honour of bashing it open.
The copper tap breaks the seal, and you’re on.
The beer is 1) Fucking cold. 2) Smooth & light-tasting. 3) A li lfruity. 4) Goes down easy.
Its brewed from wheat & malted barley, unfiltered, with a murky, Hoegaarden-like colour. It’s served at 3 Celcius. I like.
It was a crew of 3 (my bro & MadMax) that soon expanded as word got round of what mischief we were up to in the city on a Sunday afternoon. Haha
There’s also a bbq section – the grilled siakap is pretty good, but get the sauce on the side, not on it.
They got tons of pork! Char siew too. Honey pork, fire pork, beancurd pork, crunchy pork, honey char siew, garlic pork.
There’s a band – called Suresh & Friends. Unexpectedly impressive.
But this ridiculous deal is only until tomw (Wed, Dec 16), so get organized. It operates 3pm-3am and located at Life Centre along Sultan Ismail.
There’s also a sweet deal for Smirnoff – $300 NETT for 2 bottles. Not sure until when.
The official launch takes place on Thursday from 6.45pm. Freeflow. Reshmonu & some chick called Chi Ling will be in dahaus.
