Guinness Anchor Berhad occupies a land area of 23.72 acres and is the first brewery in Malaysia to receive the MS 1480: 2007 Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Certification from the Ministry of Health in August 2002. In 2010, the brewery have upgraded to MS ISO 9001: 2008.
The brewery brews Guinness, Heineken, Kilkenny, Tiger, Tiger Radler, Anchor Smooth, Anchor Strong and Anglia Shandy. GAB also imported brands like Paulaner, Strongbow, Kirin Ichiban, Smirnoff Ice, and a new member in the line, Affligem. It also produces non-alcoholic Malta.
You’ll notice a big compound with a few buildings. On top of one of the main buildings is a big red sign board that says “GAB” which stands for Guinness Anchor Berhad if you drive down the Federal Highway from Subang to KL and back often enough
For a major brewery in Malaysia, it only makes sense for Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB) to have their own pub in their brewery backyard. Named The Tavern (I’d like to believe for really obvious reasons), it serves as as GAB’s training ground for bartenders (because knowing how to pour the perfect pint is a mastery course). Visitations to The Tavern is also a staff perk.
The interior of The Tavern is tastefully decorated and feels warm and cozy. I like the ambience of the pub and there is in fact a real boiler used in the brewery adorning the bar. Nice! The Tavern has a wide array of beer on tap. The good people at Heineken were kind enough to provide us with a free flow of beer!
