This craft beer taproom/stall is located within a hawker space at Chinatown Complex pouring out no-frills fresh, cold pints – some 20 different pours sourced from a variety of local and international brands – that can be paired with hawker food from neighbouring shops. Just remember to dress light for the weather, and perhaps wash all that hawker nosh down with some cold pints. If you're fortunate enough, you might even find yourself in good company of craft beer purveyors of Singapore and perhaps, shed some light on Singapore's craft beer landscape and history.
Craft beer has definitely come a long way since POTUS Jimmy Carter legalized US Homebrewing but it wasn’t really till 1980 when Sierra Nevada perfected the Pale Ale. Fast forward to recent years, the US now has over 7000 craft breweries in operation with no sign of slowing down. Well, like it or not, this global phenomenon has gained real traction in Singapore over the decade with plenty of local microbreweries brewing up a storm while dedicated purveyors of craft beers import an excitable range of craft beers from around the globe to cater to all hopheads alike.
So for all y'all pint lovin' folks out there, here are the best craft beer bars to get yourself acquainted with the freshest hop juice on the island.
