 The Essence Of The Alps

The Alps Bar served Edelweiss wheat beer, inviting fans to experience the alps through its subtle fruitiness and refreshing taste.

Fans of the brew who held a Camper Pass spent the night under the sky of Genting Highlands.

Aptly named after Edelweiss’ core ingredients, the Wheat Tent, the Hops Tent and the Mountain Herb Tent gave campers an elevated camping experience.

Campers also had the chance to participate in sustainability trail walks and morning yoga sessions as they appreciated mother nature.

Nature lovers who went for a trail walk explored the lush beauty of the Montane Timber Forest of the Awana BIO Park and stood next to some of the forest’s giants while enjoying the picturesque views of the Awana Golf Course.

One Of The World’s First Wheat Beers

Born in the heights of the Austrian Alps in Europe, Edelweiss’ traditional heritage can be traced back to 1646.

The German word ‘Edelweiss’ or ‘Edelweiß’ is a combination of ‘edel’ which means noble, and ‘weiß’, which means white.

Edelweiss is bottled by Brau Union using a recipe that has remained unchanged since then.

Refreshingly fruity and aromatic in flavour with noticeable banana undertones, Edelweiss’ unique taste is obtained from its top fermented brewing process.

Edelweiss is made of a carefully curated combination of ingredients; pure alpine water, wheat malt, barley malt, hops and top-fermented yeast.

As a modern wheat beer, Edelweiss is not as sweet or heavy as other wheat beers.

It is also well-balanced, with a fresh, clean taste and a hint of citrus.

Why wheat beers are better?

In addition to flavour, wheat has a high protein content, giving the beer a richer body, more stable foam, and – often – a hazy appearance.

A lot of beer is brewed with wheat, one of the most common ingredients in brewing.

There are several proven wheat beer benefits, from reducing the risk of broken bones to avoiding osteoporosis, diabetes, and even dementia.

Wheat beer provides many useful vitamins, chemicals and other additives that can enhance the way the body works and help avoid such diseases.
