George Wong is among the first ever batch of BJCP judges, Founder of Hong Kong Beer Judge Association, a renowned beer lover, and most likely, the Father of craft beer in Hong Kong. With Father's Day coming up, what could be more fitting than to chat about beers with him?⁣

The first thing George did after arriving at Brewcraft, was opening a bottle of Barrel Cuvée (2019) from the Eclipse series brewed by @5050brewery. “If we are going to talk about beers, we 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 to have a beer in hand!”⁣

"𝙄 𝙙𝙞𝙙𝙣'𝙩 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚 𝙙𝙖𝙧𝙠 𝙗𝙚𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙢𝙪𝙘𝙝!"⁣
It’s hard to imagine George, who was happily sipping a rich imperial stout, used to dislike dark beers. “Oh I didn’t like dark beers back then! The only stout I knew at the time was Guinness, which was not very appealing for me because of its light taste.”⁣

"𝘼 𝙜𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝙧𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙚𝙙 𝙢𝙮 𝙡𝙞𝙛𝙚!"⁣
A conversation with a bottle shop owner changed his mind. “There’s this bottle shop around the corner near my house that I frequented. I was chatting with the owner one day, talking about how I didn’t like dark beers. The owner insisted that I must try Old Rasputin from @northcoastbrewingcompany. He said this renowned Russian Imperial Stout would change my view about dark beers.”⁣

George knew the owner was right after he had his first sip of the beer. The rich and complex taste of coffee, cocoa, toffee and roasted malt with a smooth and thick mouthfeel completely blew his mind! “Having someone knowledgeable and passionate about beers to challenge your views is the most perfect experience you can get at a bar or bottle shop!”⁣

We want to create the same experience for everyone who visits Brewcraft! Schedule a date with your dad at Brewcraft on Father’s Day, and allow us to blow your dad’s mind about beers! 🤯⁣


【尋找𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐰𝐜𝐫𝐚𝐟𝐭的故事・改變佐治一生的啤酒】⁣

縱橫精釀啤酒界多年、香港首批啤酒評審、身為香港啤酒評審認證協會(Hong Kong Beer Judge Association)創辦人,佐治黃(George Wong)擁有非常之多銜頭,但對小編嚟講,佐治係香港精釀之父,所以父親節一定要搵精釀爸爸傾傾計!⁣

佐治一上到嚟Brewcraft、櫈都未坐暖,就立即話要開支 @5050brewery Eclipse系列裡面嘅Barrel Cuvée (2019)同我哋分享,「講啤酒點可以唔飲啤酒㗎!」⁣

〖我唔飲黑啤㗎噃!〗⁣
睇見佐治咁開心飲黑啤飲到見牙唔見眼,又點會估到佢最初接觸啤酒嘅時候,幾乎唔會點飲黑啤?「我嗰陣唔飲黑啤㗎!住咗喺美國咁多年,當時接觸到嘅黑啤就只有健力士(Guinness),佢味道唔算好豐富,唔太吸引我,所以我平時都唔會主動揀黑啤嚟飲。」⁣

〖全靠指路明燈——啤酒舖老闆〗⁣
一次去精釀啤酒舖嘅經驗,就改變咗佐治對黑啤嘅睇法,「間啤酒舖好近屋企,已經當咗個老闆係街坊。有日同老闆傾起我唔鍾意飲黑啤,佢就拎起咗支 @northcoastbrewingcompany 嘅Old Rasputin,話我飲完呢隻俄式帝國司陶特(Russian Imperial Stout),一定對黑啤完全改觀咁話!」⁣

佐治飲第一啖,就完全明白老闆嘅意思——豐富咖啡、可可豆、拖肥、香烤麥芽味,口感豐厚,甜而不膩,實在係同佐治印象中嘅味淡淡嘅黑啤完全唔一樣。Old Rasputin可以話係擴闊咗佐治視野嘅神級黑啤!⁣

「對我嚟講,去啤酒舖、酒吧最美好嘅經驗係有個對啤酒有認識、有熱情嘅職員,介紹一啲我未接觸過嘅啤酒、挑戰我嘅味蕾!」佐治話,要認識啤酒除咗要靠自己不斷試,「指路明燈」都好重要。⁣

成為愛啤之人嘅「指路明燈」,一直係Brewcraft嘅目標!父親節帶埋爸爸上嚟Brewcraft,等我哋店長挑戰一吓爸爸嘅味蕾啦!😉⁣
