No prizes for guessing on which floor this bar and restaurant is perched. Billed as the world’s highest microbrewery, LeVeL33 gloriously overlooks the Marina Bay, and, thanks to the decor and service, is perhaps the most sophisticated place to quaff a locally brewed beer.
Five brews are permanently on the menu: an IPA, stout, wheat beer, house porter and blonde lager. They bear classic flavour profiles – the brewery claims to use ‘authentic recipes and brewing methods’ – so don’t expect funky American-style notes. Every quarter, LeVeL33 also pours out a seasonal beer, like a chestnut beer for Christmas and a pumpkin ale for Halloween.
Here’s where LeVeL33 stands out from the pack. The food here, courtesy of executive chef ArChan Chan, is far from the typical chicken wings and fries. Begin your meal with sourdough made with warm beer malt with a side of yeast beer butter – this idea of using beer byproducts carries on into the other dishes too, with creations like pan-seared Hokkaido scallops ($24) served with wheat beer dashi, seaweed and malt chips and the local sea bass ($36) paired with beer malt risotto, daikon and beurre blanc. While grilled steaks are a favourite on the menu, the Golden Greens Tart ($29) is an excellent option, whether you're vegetarian or not. A crispy taro tart ring is piled with fresh vegetables like peas, zucchini, herbs and shaved macadamia nuts.
