This year is looking pretty bold.

Welcome in the Year of the Goat in a bold and auspicious manner this festive season with Guinness!  In marking this auspicious time of year, Guinness has teamed up with the Grand Imperial Group of restaurants to create a special Guinness banquet menu, available at all six Grand Imperial restaurants across Malaysia.


Eight sumptuous courses are paired with Guinness stout served in different ways to complement and bring out the full flavours of each dish, providing a tantalising sensation for the tastebuds befitting the spirit of prosperity and celebration of the New Year festivities.


Priced at RM1888 nett, the special Guinness New Year banquet menu is available from January 13th until March 5th, and includes two quarts of Guinness stout, as well as two sets of exclusive Guinness ang pow. Full details of the exclusive menu can be found at Guinness Malaysia official Facebook page.

Hailing the collaboration, Bruce Dallas, Marketing Director of Guinness Anchor Berhad, said “Guinness is known the world over for its superb quality, rich taste, and proud traditions. It is a beer Made of More – more flavour, more boldness, and made with passion and dedication by our Master Brewers. As such, I can think of no better beer with which to usher in this auspicious time of year, when we gather with friends and family to celebrate sau-kong and to look forward to beginning the New Year in the best way possible. By pairing with the Grand Imperial Group of restaurants, renowned across Malaysia for its sumptuous food, Guinness ensures that you can begin the New Year in a bold and prosperous way while out to celebrate, as well as in the comfort of your own home.”
