Oktoberfest with Station One Signature Sunway
It has been an exciting month of October. A month long of two festivals, beer tradition of Oktoberfest and Malaysian most celebrated food festival, Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF). Oktoberfest has never been so celebrated in Malaysia and the tradition continues at Station One Signature Sunway. It was another evening of Tiger beer drinking with food sampling!

It goes without saying that beer and food truly goes hand-in-hand. But for beer lovers in Malaysia, drinking their favourite beers with the right finger food and snacks are taken very seriously. Apart from the usual bar snacks – ground nuts and chips – there are many different types of food and snacks that beer lovers consider as must-haves to complete their drinking experience. Such devotion to the perfect drinking experience has prompted Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB) to celebrate beer lover’s love for beer and food by gathering beer lovers from the media as well as bloggers to pair, taste and rank ten snacks that goes well with Tiger Beer at Station One Signature, Sunway.
Among the snacks prepared by Station One Signature were Hash Browns, Lobster Balls, Potato Wedges, Chicken Filament Rolls, Surimi Golden Prawns, Honey Crab Dumplings, Savory Lattice Fries, French Fries, Deli Nuggets and Fried Fish Balls. They were ranked based on their flavours and tastes when paired with Tiger Beer.
“It is natural and satisfying to have beers accompanied by food. Beer is highly versatile and is a great match with bites due to its complex flavours and its ability to provide refreshment as well as interaction with many food flavours. In fact, even before you start your meal, your appetite is already stimulated by the hops in the beer. Tiger Beer is a smooth beer with a refreshing mouth feel. The aroma and taste are clean, making it the perfect companion for fried and salty snacks,” explained Keith Nair, GAB’s Beer Ambassador.
Now that you know why Tiger Beer goes so well with these snacks, grab the opportunity to pair your favourite Tiger Beer as well as Guinness Beer with Station One’s “For The Love of Beer” promotion nationwide. Enjoy 4 Tiger and 2 Guinness pints that come with 2 of the Top 10 snacks for only RM63.00 from Oct 1 to Oct 31.
Personally I preferred Lobster Balls and also Surimi Golden Prawns while the girls preferred the Savory Lattice Fries.
Apart from the special promotion at Station One, this year, GAB has planned a range of promotions and celebrations to make the world’s largest beer festival worthy of its global phenomenon status.
