Fans of the Singaporean craft brewing scene already know about this. Brewlander is a born-in-Singapore, multi-award-winning Singapore craft brewery that has in recent years, taken the Asian brewing scene by storm.

Beloved for its adventurous spirit and unique one-of-a-kind brews, Brewlander has over the years partnered with several local establishments to release special edition flavours. For example, the pink guava and raspberry infused Museum of Ice Cream x Brewlander Beer. Come Aug 3, Brewlander will also be hosting the four-day Brewnanza Fest at Bayfront Event Space. With over 100 craft beers including Brewlander’s best on showcase, this will be the BIGGEST celebration of craft beer in Singapore for 2023. A must-go for any craft beer lover.

From its humble beginning as a home-brewing operation in a HDB flat, Brewlander has also grown by leaps and bounds and now operates a state-of-the-art brewery at Tuas. What’s great about this homegrown brewery is that other than offering tours by appointment, there’s a cool taproom where visitors can leisurely try Brewlander’s many innovative flavours. Brews like the piney and bright Bestest Dad Award IPA (with Horny Goat Weed & Tongkat Ali!) or the floral and crisp Freedom Lager.

I had the pleasure of joining this tour last week and it was quite an educational and entertaining experience. It was furthermore inspirational listening to founder John Wei’s story about how a tipple in Cornwall began his passion for home brewing and how that eventually led to him founding Brewlander.

One particular episode shared by John stuck with me too. Brewlander’s current brewery at Tuas was completed in April 2020. Days later, the dreadful circuit-breaker was announced and I can only imagine how awful it was for John and his team back them. With a dream facility on hand but no clear idea of when they can fully operate.

But these guys survived; weathered the crisis very well too. In a fortnight’s time, they will also be hosting one of the biggest F&B events this year, with legendary craft brewing names like Trillium Brewing and lots of local eateries in attendance.

These guys are truly inspirational, aren’t they? The stuff that local aspiring entrepreneurs would want to read about. I’ll say John and his team all deserve a beer.

Brewing operations are also designed to be as resource efficient as possible, i.e., sustainable.
I missed the introduction for this section and so I’ll just call it the bottling line?

My visit ended with me trying two craft brews. The Bestest Dad Award IPA is herby, while the Passionista has a delightful tangy kick.
