I can't even remember since when Ipoh started having Ice Beer. I am not an alcohol person, but since people around me do drinks, I got a chance to check out this place perhaps 2 years ago?!!( can't remember exactly).
The so called ice beer selling here is simply frozen the beer, I guess?! Anyway, the ice like feeling, according to drinkers, it's having the "feel good" factor.
In fact, I found out that the real ice beer is produced through an ice brewing process, whereby the temperature is reduced to minus 4 degree when ice crystals begin to form. However,the crystals will then be removed. According to Calsberg website, it says that ice beer should be rich in flavour, smooth and easy to drink.
I have no comment...for those who like beer...should give some comment whether the ice beer here is different from the normal chilled beer?
Here you go, the Ipoh version of Ice Beer...
As far as I know, there a few ice beer stall around old town Ipoh. Operating only for dinner. Of course besides selling ice beer, there are a lot of dishes served. personally, I feel that food wise, it is just ok only...nothing to shout about. As for beer, is a good experience, at least for a change..ya!
We ordered a few dishes along with the ice beer...
