The Singapore Craft Beer Week is back after a two year hiatus and will be taking place between 24th-31st of October. Like the last edition a few years ago, this one has been organized by Charles Guerrier of Evolve Beverages – he also brought Oosters The Belgian Beer bar to Singapore. So if you are free next week, try to drop down for the many events happening during the week. A full list of events are on their webpage for more information. Beer Can Lah’s also getting involved in the Craft Beer Week. We’re presenting Can Lah! A talk on why canned beers […]
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.
Hi! How’s the long weekend working for you guys? Jamie (check out his newish homebrew blog!), Nick and I are spending Saturday and Sunday at the Singapore Mini Maker Faire, spreading the word of homebrewing to a geeky and cute kid audience also here to learn about 3D printing, leather bag making, robotics and kitty cat ears that flap about, its Japanese maker says, by sensing his brain waves from prods placed against his forehead. Err, okay!
As promised in our last post, we got in touch with Raymond at iBrew and he’s replied really swiftly with news about the judges and evaluation process for iBrew this year.
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.
Natasha, myself and our Homebrew Club friends will be at Singapore Mini Makers Faire on the 26th and the 27th of July at the Senja Cashew Community Centre in Bukit Panjang. There, we will be showing of some of our equipment, and hopefully brewing a mini full mash brew so people can see the process and what it involves. Unfortunately, we won’t be allowed to give out tasters of our beer as the organisers are not allowing it, but hey, if you really want to try our beers, drop us a message and we’ll have you over for a meeting. […]
Hello! How’s everyone been? Beerfest kicked off last week, but Nick and I had to unfortunately skip most of it. It was depressing, really, but we’ll tell you more in our next post, or the next time we meet. What ultimately turned out to be a highlight for us at this year’s festival though, was a fringe event that Hops Connect‘s Jon O’Connor (pictured, second from left) and Jonathan Lau from Munton’s (yupp, the malt guys!) put together for brewers and beer industry people.
It’s 6pm on a Thursday evening ahead of Easter Weekend and I’m thirsty. There’s a feeling of sweet liberation brought on by a long weekend in the air, and I’m ready to drink at Smith Street Taps. Set up by Brewers’ Craft Meng Chao and The Good Beer Company‘s Daniel Goh, the pair and their team have a busy night of the craft beer loyal all taking turns to pay homage to the kopitiam taproom ahead. Meng Chao and Daniel have been staging tap takeovers for the geeky and the keen learner to expand their knowledge of the who’s who […]
Looking back at the blog posts we’ve done about our homebrew meetups, we realised that there was a gap in our coverage of the September event held at Vivon’s and Eric’s place. It wasn’t that we procrastinated and hence forgotten to write about it (that sadly, is sometimes the case), but how it all transpired turned out to be a largely unmemorable affair. Don’t get me wrong. Functionally, it had some of the qualities of a good meetup. Vivon made awesome meatball subs, the brewers among us brought by beers to be judged and sampled, and of course, our friends […]
Singapore’s growing obsession for good food has seen a legion of master chefs pop by for pricey dinners, masterclasses and general schmoozing – craft beer stars, on the other hand, not so much. We were lucky though, to have brewers from two craft breweries leading the charge for the global craft beer movement pop by the city in a span of two weeks.
