Eating mooncakes is an essential custom to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival, which falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, or 10 September this year.
Beyond food, mooncakes are a profound cultural tradition deep in Chinese people’s hearts, symbolizing a spiritual feeling.
To mark the occasion, local bar chain The Beer Factory (TBF) and Malaysia’s favourite stout, Guinness, have partnered once again to create the limited-edition Guinness Snowskin Mooncakes.
Known for its deep roasted flavours and velvety texture, the Guinness Snowskin Mooncakes will be a treat for fans this festive season.

To add to the merriment, a newcomer in the market, premium wheat beer Edelweiss, has joined the longstanding partnership to create exclusive Edelweiss Snowskin Mooncakes.
With white chocolate snowskin depicting the snow-capped peaks of Europe and its iconic flower, the Edelweiss Mooncakes make the perfect pair with Guinness Snowskin Mooncake.
