Best Craft Beers Singapore (2021) 

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr
 

If you’re tired of the usual wine and whisky selections offered by many Singapore restaurants, it’s time to check out craft beers in Singapore. A craft brewery or microbrewery is where craft beers are made. These breweries typically produce less beer than larger breweries and are often independently owned. As a result, craft beers are frequently more distinct and flavorful than those found in supermarkets.

Check out our list of the Top 10 Craft Beers in Singapore to add to your list of alcoholic beverages to enjoy on your next staycation!
