Craft Brews @ Mutiara Damansara

    Craft Brew has been a favourite hang out spot of us ever since they opened their door to the public last year. I love the fact that it is (quite) near to my house.
    I love the casual and comfy setting.

    It is sad to know that Craft Brew failed to obtain a license to brew their own beer. So the dream of having our very own microbrewery sort of “vanished”.

    However, I love the fact that they took the effort to bring in Singaporean beer brand RedDot (the fame GREEN and RED coloured beer) and American brews, Flying Dogs (Old Scratch Amber Lager, In-Heat Wheat Hefeweizen, etc) and Rogue (Brutal Bitter, Dead Guy, etc).

    Something is always better than nothing right?

    I also like how the food is seriously non halal. Pork ribs, pork burger, carbonara and etc; you name it, they have it. Even the complimentary soup is full of porcine goodness but it was too salty for my liking.
    Honey Mustard Pork Ribs (RM28). I know how everyone loves their ribs to be “fork tender and falling off the bone easily”, but our honey mustard ribs were a bit too soft and mushy.
    The lamb shank (RM28) was deep fried before it was braised or simmered to succulence (I think), which results in a slightly crispy skin. This delicious lamb dish has all the right flavours in place too! Thus, it comes highly recommended by KampungBoy.
    The Craft Brews Pasta is a cream-based pasta with bacon strips and sliced shiitake mushrooms. Generous servings and they did not skimp on the ingredients.
    We absolutely adore the Potato Wedges (RM12)! I really liked the crispy aspect of the wedges and the addition of some chili flakes was genius! It made a great beer snacks too.
    We also sampled three types of home brew:

    Monster Green Lagers that appears in translucent green is brewed and lagered with premium spirulina that gives the unique color and a whiff of fresh fragrance.

    English Ale is for someone who likes stronger and full-bodied beer. It appears in ruby red and the flavour comes a bit complex with smoky, spicy and hop-py.

    Weizen (Wheat Beer) appears in Golden and cloudy. With the fruity nose and spice flavour, you will find it light-bodied and refreshing.

    *1/2 pint at RM15
    “In Heat” Wheat Hefeweizen (RM18) is highly recommended for ladies and for those who find beers bitter
    the partners in crime I – simon seow
    the partners in crime II – chris, christine, aiwei, tingfang

    The food was decent but for someone who prefers full flavoured beer, you might find the light and refreshing beers to be tasteless and odourless. It was ok for us, because we can drink them all night without falling over.
