Alumni catch up with each other over a relaxed beer tasting session
On 17 August, the BBA Alumni Association went on a fascinating tour of an organic beer factory in Tuen Mun. The tour was led by Mr. Raymond Lo, President of the BBA Alumni Association.
Dr. Stephen Hui, the Managing Director of OG Market Hong Kong Ltd., one of the partners of the Organic Beer Hong Kong Ltd., welcomed the enthusiastic group of BBA alumni and showed them the production process step by step. Everyone was amazed by the modern facilities and asked many questions along the way.
After the tour, the group sat down to a tasting session with a range of organic beer. This brewery devotes itself to traditional German brewing rules and techniques, using certified organic malt from the UK and organic hops from Canada. At the tasting session, Dr. Hui explained, “Because the beer is unfiltered and unpasteurised, you’ll find traces of sediment at the bottom of your glass. This is a natural source of nutrition which is retained in order to offer the freshest beer with a distinctive malty aroma and bigger, longer-lasting foam.” He added, “Hong Kong is one of our major markets for organic beer.”
On this eye-opening visit, alumni not only learned more about organic beer and its market trends, they also had an enjoyable time getting to know each other. “A huge thank you to Dr. Hui for conducting this inspiring tour for us,” said Mr. Raymond Lo. “With the support of our fellow alumni, the BBA Alumni Association will continue to organise different activities to suit the diverse interests of the group.”
