KUALA LUMPUR, 7th January 2020 – Tiger Beer, Malaysia’s No. 1 beer1, welcomed the Year of the Rat with a grand launch event held at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur followed by a delectable dinner at the Grand Imperial Restaurant.

The double celebration of Chinese New Year and Tiger Beer’s auspicious 88th anniversary stayed true to the promise of ‘Double the Huat’ with an array of activities and performances.
Guests mingled at the Tiger HUAT HUAT Bazaar before the event kicked off with a mesmerizing lion dance performance that ignited auspiciousness – the lions of different colours represented the brands in the HEINEKEN Malaysia portfolio. With festive spirits at an all-time high, Roland Bala, Managing Director of HEINEKEN Malaysia, unveiled the grand, gilded 88 sculpture, officiating the beginning of Tiger Beer’s Chinese New Year campaign for the Year of the Rat.
