2. Tuas Brewing Co.

Key FeaturesBeers
Where to buy

The name says it all: Tuas is where it all happens. This brand was created by Trouble Brewing as a tribute to our country, and the concept came from there.

The name of the light, seasonable beer, Singapore Lager, is appropriately descriptive. It’s available at a variety of bars in the city, but you may also have it delivered to your home.

Are you planning on visiting Boat Quay? BQ Bar or Molly Malone’s Irish Bar are two excellent options if you’re looking for a drink.

Key Differentiators

  • Singapore born and brewed
  • Creating fresh, locally-brewed craft beer, cider and hard seltzer for everyone
  •  Light, refreshing and easy to drink

Buyer’s Review

Drink taste very diluted as compared to the past. Delivery was really within one hour.

3. Lion City Meadery

Key FeaturesSingapore based craft mead brewery and distributor
Where to buy

Since 2013, when he tried mead on his trip to London, co-founder Sanjay Jegatheesan’s passion for mead has blossomed.

It began as a search for high-quality mead in Singapore, but he and his buddy Justin Herson decided to create their own. They produce spiced mead, which has undertones of cinnamon, cloves, and star anise, among other things. The chrysanthemum mead is the way to go if you’re looking for something sweeter.

Key Differentiators

  • Since August 2018
  • High-quality brewed beers
  • Produce spiced mead

Buyer’s Review

Spiced is superb


4. That Singapore Beer Project

Key FeaturesSocial beer project
Where to buy

With new yet recognizable tastes, go off the beaten path. As examples, take Kiam Sng Di and Kopi O Nanyang Stout.

The first is a refreshing plum gose with guava undertones, a tribute to the local custom of eating sliced guava with sour plum powder, and the second is a homage to Singaporean coffee.

Furthermore, we couldn’t help but admire how well the Singaporean motifs were used as cover art.

Key Differentiators

  • Fresh beers
  • Bar-to-home experience
  • Available in different stores islandwide

5. Alive Brewing Co.

Key FeaturesStaple and seasonal beers

Delectable brews are the result.

Alive Brewing Co. offers a wide range of tastes for various palates, all brewed in Singapore by the circuit breaker. Sense of Symmetry features a 50/50 mix of New England IPA with deep tropical notes, while Little Xtra has extra pale ale topped with tropical and citrus fruit undertones.

Jing–A is a Beijing-based craft brewery that has achieved considerable success. From a single location to several taprooms around the city, they have blossomed from a single establishment to many brews, with their beers ranging from core to seasonal.

Jing-A Brewing uses local and regional ingredients to flavor its beers, such as a wheat beer flavored with dried mandarin orange peels and an ale created from red koji rice.

The first international endeavor for Singapore is the opening of their Mandarin Wheat and Worker’s Pale Ale, which they’re marking with. You can get them at Shopee or Lazada, as well as in bars like KPO, Sol, and Fu Lin.

8. Ren Min

Key FeaturesBeer bar
Where to buy

Ren Min is a local business that was formerly known as 3rd Culture Brewing and began operations in 2016. They first opened their taproom in Maxwell Food Centre, where they served international craft beer, and then expanded to Old Airport Road Food Centre.

After being known as SiB for three years, the pair decided to change their name last year. They’re now known as Ren Min, which means “red wine” in Chinese. They plan to start their own brewery down the road after rebranding. While the plant is still under construction, Ren Min is producing beer in a number of locations.

Their second and most recent batch of beers is produced in Vietnam, where they offer three IPAs – a session, hazy, and smoothie-style – as well as a stout. The names range from Cloud Chasing to Kiss Kiss, which the brewery claims are a homage to the basic pleasures in life that have been temporarily taken away from us.

Key Differentiators

  • Modern craft brewery
  • Located in Singapore’s two most famous hawker centres
  • Offers good food too

Buyer’s Review

So just tried out there delivery service. Have to give them massive points for doing this over the lockdown, no automation so this must be an absolute nightmare. My five crowlers turned up no problem and looking forward to drink them all once the kids are in bed. Once we are released will head down to their bar at old airport road, hopefully there is a veggie stall down there to keep the wife happy.
