Yupp, you’ve heard right. Singapore’s getting its 13th brewery when Little Island Brewing Co. opens next week. This one has been set up all the way on the eastern tip of the island at Changi Village, and I had a chance to pop by on Monday to go have a look around while they put the finishing touches on their sprawling, industrial-looking space. I wrote about their food and the beers they’ll serve when they first open for the blog at work, and you can read about it at this link. For you geeks interested in the beer though, I picked up […]
It’s certainly an exciting time to be a homebrewer in Singapore – we’re just about coming down from the high of this year’s iBrew challenge and now us moonshine makers have a new homebrew store to shop at.
After looking on enviously at our homebrewing friends, Dave and Sandy’s barrel-aging kits, we gave in and ordered ourselves a couple of barrels to age beers in!
Our good friends at Thirsty are now making every Friday night from 7pm homebrew night. This means you can take your homebrews down to Thirsty at Liang Court every Friday and share them with Roland, Jasper and Evonne down there to get feedback on them. You can also share them with other craft beer connoisseurs that might be enjoying a bottle from the extensive range of craft beers they stock.
Back for yet another year of homebrewer showboating and fun camaraderie over beers made in home kitchens across the city, the iBrew Challenge is back again on 30 August, 2-7pm. This year, it pitches tent again at the grass field just outside the homebrew store and Meng Chao’s bottle shop, Brewers’ Craft.
We take a break now from the recount of our trip to Copenhagen and the UK to bring you this helpful guide on how to get beer shipped into Singapore. :) I haven’t quite told anyone (not even Nick) but I’ve been constantly stalking the Mikkeller and other craft beer e-shops online, hoping to see To Øl’s Baltic Frontier surface again for me to buy crates and crates of.
Forgive us for not tending to this blog in awhile. No, it hasn’t been relegated quite to the back of our minds – there were so many weekends I just wanted to sit down and just bang out some words about how the industry is growing here in Singapore, and our thoughts on the newer developments in the local craft brew scene, but the end of last year was a whirlwind of busy-ness both for Nick and I. Besides having to get on with work (Nick’s just about finished working on his thesis – yay him! – and I had […]
Taphouse is a new bar concept brought to you by the people that brought us Brewerkz. It is located in Dempsey Hill, which usually I don’t go to often as the price range is not accessible to us – Dempsey seems more like a rich person’s playground, judging by the kind of hardware you see up there. Thankfully, Taphouse is much more accessible to the regular man.
Yepp, we’re bringing our kegs out for the first time ever (barbecues don’t count)! Nick and I are bringing two beers and a talk to The Great Beer Experiment this Sunday at 10.30am. It’s really early to be awake on a Sunday morning, if you ask us, anything for good craft beer is worth sacrificing sleep for! Titled The Great Singapore Experiment, the awesome Corrine and Lincoln from TGBE have invited ourselves, Aditya Challa from Jungle Beer and Scott Robinson from Brewerkz to speak on a bunch of topics craft beer related and share our brews. Nick and I will […]
