Established in 2016, Tasting Trendies® aim to highlight the enjoyment of quality alcoholic beverage.  We love to share the joy of tasting different alcoholic beverages by organizing events.  Our masterpiece in 2017 is Hong Kong Tasting Trendies® Sake Awards – the FIRST Sake competition in Hong Kong and up to now it is the oldest sake competition in Asia (apart from Japan), follow by another masterpiece which is Tasting Trendies® Beer Inspector Certification Course.  An intense but compete beer course from the history and method of beer brewing to the ingredients and beer styles, which aims to bring more people into the craft beer world.  Also we do wine & food pairing dinners, craft beer tasting seminars, sake tasting.  We believe food pairing is an art.  An art with no boundary which can merge different food & beverages cultures in the World.



Entry fee wavied!  Instead we need 24 bottles/cans per entry.  The rest of the bottles/cans will be displayed & selling in the shop called “MiMiChannel” located in Star Ferry Pier, Tsim Sha Tsui.  It is right next to the World famous Hong Kong Harbour view!  The idea is not just want more beer can join this competition, but also want more people includes importers, restaurant buyers, beer lovers, etc. taste your quality beer.
