Beerfest Asia 2012 Returns this June
Asia's biggest beer festival returns for its fourth year
Singapore’s premier beer festival Beerfest Asia returns to offer beer enthusiasts the chance to savour over 350 labels of beers from Asia and the rest of the world. For four whole days from 7 - 10 June, Beerfest Asia 2012 will once again take over the Marina Promenade in celebration of friends, music and most importantly, a fresh pint of beer.
"Beerfest Asia 2012 not only brings consumers and industry colleagues together under one roof, but has also become an exciting and entertaining event not to be missed in Singapore’s calendar, "says festival director Edward Chia, who promises that this year's Beerfest Asia will be "the best one yet".
Powerhouse Beer Brands
Beerfest Asia 2012 puts the "fest" in "Beerfest" with over 350 different varieties of beer on offer, including 50 new beers from powerhouse brands in Belgium, Germany, the U.S. and Asian countries like Indonesia and Singapore, on show.
Flying the local flag is Beerfest Asia debutant Jungle Beer, which uses tropical fruits, flowers and spices to craft their artisan brews. For those looking for something unique and zany, look out for Früli Strawberry Beer from Belgium, a fruit beer brewed from pure strawberry juice.
Great Bar Grub
While beer might be the centre of attention for Beerfest Asia 2012, revelers can also tuck into quintessential "beer food" such as German sausages, nachos, meatballs and other bar grub, courtesy of the good people at Harry's.
Nothing goes better with beer and bar grub than great live entertainment, and this year's entertainment duty falls to a host of musical tribute bands from all over the world, including the world-renowned, all-female AC/DC tribute band Hell's Belles as well as Australia's All Star Super Group, who's known for its Oasis, Elton John and David Bowie covers.
Comedy Club Asia will be providing comedic relief, featuring some of the best standup comedic talents from Australia and the United Kingdom. Local comedy trio The Sons of Singapore will also be making their debut for an evening of beer, food and laughs.

Last year, California voters amended the state’s “Three Strike Law,” which had required an automatic 25-year prison sentence for anyone convicted of three felonies. Advocates of the change said the severity of the crimes should be taken into account before sentencing. But there are other laws around the world that make “Three Strikes” look tame in comparison. In 1994, the country of Singapore made headlines when they caned a 19 year-old American who had been found guilty of vandalism. But far more serious an offense is drug possession. Having 17 ounces or more of marijuana in Singapore can carry a punishment of death by hanging. Drug possession carries equally strict penalties in other countries, too. In Saudi Arabia, drug traffickers can be publicly beheaded. And in Vietnam, drug convicts are sent to a rehabilitation center that, in reality, is a forced hard labor camp. There are also strict laws out there for crimes much less serious than drug dealing. In North Korea, trying to leave the country without permission could result in life imprisonment at labor camp for you, your children, and grandchildren. In India, cheating on an academic exam in school can land you in jail for 10 years. And in Dubai, a British couple learned the hard way that kissing in public can be considered indecent exposure. They were sentenced to one month in jail in 2010 for their public display of affection.Maybe the British couple’s next trip should be to California, where at least you get three strikes before you’re out.
