Where da party at

Carlsberg’s Where’s The Party is now a regular program in the year’s big parties. Well, it’s not that big coz the entire world aint invited, which is what makes it better than the rest.

The latest one was the third, and my second, after the brewery party earlier this year. This time, an overnight gig. Nice.

Islands are always good. Great in fact. Penang is a spot i party at every coupla years.

A party at d beach – it’s what we all need, regularly! We live in a tropical country encircled by the ocean for God’s sake!

Anyway, buses scooped our butts from KL to Penang.

Even Ewok joined the party


All aboard

The beach spot

There were food stalls set-up on the beach too, (at Feringghi) hawker-style, and guests could grab whatever they wanted. And the lager flowed freely of course.

A beach lounge. Nice


Set-up was awesome

Kronenbourg Blanc @ Marini’s

Kronenbourg threw a great party at the rooftop joint, Marini’s on 57.

It was to introduce the beer, which launched a year ago, to more drinkers. The party was called Project Pleasure: Unmasking the French Taste of Summer.

It’s a beer with various flavours, as it has wheat, coriander n orange peel as its ingredients. I like it.

Marini’s is a new bar, lounge and soon-to-open restaurant. It’s taken the entire rooftop of Tower 3, KLCC.

Welcome drink

Waay up

Lots of glass & steel all round

The turf was a nice touch

More Grimbergen ales arrive

Grimbergen, a Belgian ale, now has several varieties available. The launch was at the Belgian ambassador’s residence in Ampang. Quite a pad.

Tents were set-up in the garden.

Fancy tent

It was quite an event.

There are three varieties now, in lil 250ml bottles – the Blond (gold, abv 6.7%), Blanche (white, 6%) and Amber (dark, 6.5%). I’m impressed with the alcohol levels. The Blanche is also available in draft.

One of many

The Blond is an easy-drinking ale, light-tasting and a lil sweetish. Good for most situations. It’s been available here since April last year.

The Blanche has a fruity nose, some citrusy notes even, and in the mouth its light and clean, with no hints of bitterness at all. Refreshing.

Mad Max losin it

The dark guy, Amber (aka Grimbergen Double) is also an easy-going ale, and considering its colour, it’s only a light malt, and a sweetish finish.

Super colour

The beer is served in a chalice, to add a barbarian touch.

The fathers at the Abbey of Grimbergen founded by St Norbert in the village of Grimbergen near Brussels logically used the hops and barley that grew around the abbey to make beer, which was consumed by travellers at the attached inn.

The phoenix logo is actually the abbey’s coat-of-arms. The Carlsberg Group has acquired its license to brew.

Garden gig

The beers are brought in by Luen Heng, and the RRP is between $20-25 at selected bars. Brussels Beer Cafe definitely has them.

The sprinklers almost went off

So, where da party at?

Comin up this Saturday, as Party Season 2011 peaks, is… a party.

And it’s an invite-only gig. So there’ll be music n free booze (lager that is).

It’s kinda all-expense paid.

It’s a 12-hour event by Carlsberg that’s called Where’s The Party?


It’s a secret, and u’ll know when the chartered bus gets u there.

The last one went down at a resort in Sepang, and it was fat, at the Golden Palm Tree Resort. Massages n various fun games too.

I’d love it to be at the beach, but who knows. Wherever, it shd be interesting.

So, interested? The first 10 people who like the Facebook page from this blog will win a ticket. Easy!

Not sure how they will give it out tho. TODAY (Thu) is the last day for tickets.

The best part is – i can get sumtin too – if 100 readers from here like that page, i get a camera.

And if u only knew what baaad shape my goddam camera is in at the mo, u’ll really like the page! Here.
