First-ever craft beer festival in Singapore: drink down quality ales, lagers, ciders at this pop-up event in 2016.
Fancy a pint? Head down to Marina Bay in March 2016 for brews from Archipelago, Brewerkz, Little Island Brewing Company and more…
To many, a pint of beer is equivalent to a trusty best mate – an unconditional companion to perk you up (or a source of solace for drowning your sorrows) for the day ahead. As such, the activity of ale or lager appreciation is no light matter; so much so, that we’ve seen a healthy surge of craft beer culture in the past few years. Naturally, we expect many beer connoisseurs to be hopping mad upon hearing this announcement: Singapore is launching its first ever craft beer festival come March 2016!
Dubbed CRAFT Singapore 2016, this festival is set to get revelries brewing at Marina Bay, coinciding with iLight Marina Bay 2016. We can tell you right now that you’ll be spoilt for choice, ’cos word has it that there will be hundreds of beers (and ciders!) being showcased from more than 25 local and international brewers. You can expect boozin’ big players from Asia like Archipelago and Brewerkz, and even up-and-comers like Little Island Brewing Company. But if you ask us, browse through all 25 booths of specialty beers ’til you’re tipsy; we’re sure you’ll be tempted by some new tipples.
Oh, so you’re thinking that people would probably be embarrassingly sloshed and you might wanna leave the kids at home? Worry not, ’cos CRAFT Singapore 2016 promises to be family-friendly with activities that even your young’uns can enjoy (and no, we don’t mean having a ‘sip’). Aside from beer and gourmet delicacies from local restaurants, you’ll also find fringe day and night activities like masterclasses, live musicians and DJs, and other kid-friendly antics such as balloon-sculpting and face-painting. Just remember: you’re the adult here, so drink responsibly!
