The October (or in German, Oktober) homebrew meetup was a BBQ to celebrate the great German festival of Oktoberfest. The festival usually involves 20,000 sweaty people in a tent getting blind drunk on Maerzen beers, which is basically a more malty darker larger. So our theme this month was for everybody to try and recreate this style. To celebrate Oktoberfest we decided to have a BBQ. We managed to work with Meng Chao at Brewer’s Craft (it’s one of the few bottle shops in Singapore that serves good craft beer) to set up at the communal pit outside his shop […]
The last year has seen us gain a little more exposure for our home brews and the craft of home brewing your own beer. We’ve been at it for three years now, and last week, we headed out to spread the word again. The Great Beer Experiment’s Corrine clued us in on CRAFT, a festival of crafters, slam poets and local musical talents taking place at A for Arbite at the newish Aliwal Arts Centre and we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to show people just how easy it is to brew a beer in a small space with […]
Nick and I took a quick weekend trip up to Kuala Lumpur earlier this month for the Better Beer Festival, held at what’s possibly KL’s best craft beer bar, Taps. The place is pretty damn amazing – its wholly owned by Malaysians and the bar’s most awe-inspiring feature is the FOURTEEN taps serving craft beer on draft. If only we had a place like this here in Singapore, but of course, we here have our own trials to overcome, but more on that another time.
What a busy, beer-filled weekend it was for Nick and I! In the mood for solid craft beer with the coming of last week’s iBrew Challenge, we organised a single hop IPA tasting at ours for a few of beer pals.
Happy long weekend, you beer loving folks! :) Nick and I have been so massively busy with thesis writing and work, respectively, that we actually forgot to book a holiday for the four day long extravaganza that is Hari Raya and National Day. Nevertheless, we managed to score an awesome staycation at The Fullerton (thanks Fullerton and Time Out!), but more on that another time. Having missed out on this chance to leave town, we’ve decided to book a quick weekend trip away just in time for a beer event happening nearby in September. Spreading the craft beer missive from […]
Are you curious to find out what we are using to craft our beers at home? Our equipment is a mix of cheap local and second hand parts, hacked and modified to make a versatile brew setup. We plan to write about the technology on this blog in the future, but if you happen to attend this years GeekcampSG, you have the chance to attend a presentation by Markus showing some of the tech off. If you want to know how the Arduino and the Raspberry Pi are used to control a soup heater for mashing and a second-hand fridge […]
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 […]
