Celebrate the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival With Beer and Mooncakes at Urban Artifact
By Katherine Barrier,
You can celebrate the upcoming Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, a traditional festival in Chinese culture, and help raise money for those impacted by wildfires in Hawaii at Urban Artifact this week.
Urban Artifact is teaming up with Asianati to celebrate the festival at their Northside brewery Wednesday, Sept. 27 from 5-9 p.m. In honor of the festival, the brewery is releasing three special, limited-time, Asian-inspired fresh fruit tart beers:
Passion Fruit, Orange and Guava Fruit Tart, inspired by popular Hawaiian POG Juice
Asian Pear, Mango and Gochujang Fruit Tart
Dragon Fruit, Rambutan and Longan Fruit Tart
These beers will only be available at Urban Artifact on Wednesday.
Along with some new beverages, Dine In Hawaiian, an Asian Food Fest alum, will be at the festival serving Hawaiian fusion cuisine, and Queens Bakery will be making six different kinds of traditional Moon Cakes for the occasion:
Red Bean Paste (with or without egg yolk)
Lotus Seed Paste (with or without egg yolk)
Asianati will also offer lessons on MahJong, a popular Chinese tile strategy game, and soul-pop artist Serin Oh will perform. A portion of the proceeds raised at the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival will go toward Maui Strong, which has been helping those affected by wildfires in Maui.
