SAMPLE some of the 500 craft brews on offer at this weekend’s Beertopia festival, and watch local breweries compete in the first Hong Kong Beer Championships

CHECK out Mamasita’s Cantina, a colourful Cuban cantina serving tasty Mexican street food and an impressive range of rums, tequilas and mescals.

LEARN about the vanishing art of movable type and attend workshops with master printers at The Hong Kong Graphic Art Fiesta.

COME up against a black brick wall at the Galerie Perrotin show by Manila-based artist Maria Taniguchi, who’s been painting the same thing for eight years.
