For the third year in a row, Belgian beer brand Hoegaarden is holding a summer festival in Hong Kong. This year they will be partnering with local handicraft platform Think of a Style and Central Venue Management to bring a unique twist on the celebration, called Think of a Market @SummerFest.
The festival will be held on August 25th and 26th and will be comprised of a market with over 300 handcrafters from Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan, unique DIY workshops, live music, and of course, beer.
As you may have guessed, there will be a selection of Hoegaarden’s popular White and Rosée beers (HK$60 / 500ml). But more interestingly, there will be two unique cocktails created just for the event. The first, The ‘Greeny Garden’ is a refreshing mix of Hoegaarden White, fresh kiwi juice and peppermint liquor. The second, the 'Rosée Punch' is a mixture of Hoegaarden Rosée, apple juice, lemon-lime soda and assorted fruits. Both cocktails will cost HK$70/glass.
If you’ve ever wanted to try beer ice cream, now you have the chance. Partnering with local ice creamery XTC, Hoegaarden has created the 'Hoegaarden Rosée Sorbet', which is a combination of Rosée beer, raspberries, and low fat Italian sorbet. There’s a Facebook competition to get a free cup, for the first 500 participants each day, so be sure to come early.
The Butchers Club will be serving their dry-aged burgers out of their food truck. Items include sliders, the “Steak-on-Steak” (Chargrilled Australian Black Angus Rib), and Frozen Bananas.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy music from the musicians like Mr. Wally, Judas Law, Sin Yuen and Winka Chan.
