Kuching, 27th January 2018 – Carlsberg Malaysia ushers in this Chinese New Year (CNY) celebration with “Probably The Most Victorious Year” campaign, inspired by the Chinese saying Qí Kāi Dé Shèng (齊開得勝) symbolising the brewer “flagging off to successful ventures” or “together, we shall succeed” with the Malaysian Chinese community.

The festival at the venue was made even livelier by special appearances of local artistes Guo Yan Yan (Summer Grace), Stella Chung and Nick Chung.
Music festival goers got the opportunity to also enjoy the various brews available for purchase by Carlsberg Malaysia at the festival. Variants include Carlsberg, Carlsberg Smooth Draught, Somersby Apple Cider, Somersby Blackberry Cider, Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc, Asahi Super Dry, Royal Stout, Carlsberg Special Brew and Jolly Shandy.
