Tree Bar at G Hotel Gurney is Penang’s largest alfresco bar built under an over 40meter tall, hundred-year-old Angsana tree. With a seating capacity of 198, Tree Bar is a laid back hang out spot to unwind after a long hard day at work.

Tree Bar offers a wide selection of international beers, wines, cocktails (including Tree Bar specialty cocktails that are personally curated by their in-house mixologists) and a good mix of snacks and bites. Tree Bar has recently introduced Penang’s first Reverse Tap Beer.

Me having a go at dispensing the Reverse Tap Beer!

Reverse Tap Beer at Tree Bar

This machine systematically dispenses beer from the bottom up, as opposed to regular taps. The reverse tap beer system uses specially customized glasses which can fit into the machine for dispensing. A pint of beer is them dispensed from the bottom up in 7 seconds (9 times faster than done manually)!

The resulting beer is much smoother as less gas/air is introduced during the dispensing process. I was surprised at the taste and texture of the beer and really enjoyed it!

Here’s a short video of yours truly trying to introduce the Reverse Tap Beer (emphasis on the trying.. since this is my very first video! lol)

Tree Bar’s food menu is pretty extensive as well, featuring 3 new dishes –Lamb Filo Pastry, Bruschetta and Tree Bar Oriental Slider

Lamb Filo Pastry RM28nett

The Lamb Filo Pastry features minced lamb and potatoes marinated with Asian spices and hand wrapped in crispy filo pastry. Resulting a savoury, mildly spicy crispy bite that pairs well with a refreshing Mint Raita dip.

Bruschetta RM38nett

The Bruschetta offers 3 different toppings on slices of french baguette – smoked salmon, tomato & basil and chicken, apple & mayo mix. My favourite was the classic tomato & basil combination, though the chicken, apple & mayo mix came in a close second.

Meanwhile, the Tree Bar Oriental Slider features chicken and prawn patty mini burgers.

Other favourites from their food menu include Nachos with homemade guacamole and tomato salsa dip, Mozarella cheese sticks, Seafood pizza, Buffalo wings, Siu Mai, Sausage puffs and Gyoza.
