BEERS - OUT & ABOUT IN SINGAPORE

Postby spud » 23 Feb 2008, 15:41

Hi Guys & Ladies.
What we are trying to do here is create a listing of Beers available in Singapore.
Can be local, imported, draft, bottled, canned.
So that would mean that Brew Pubs can tell us what they have on tap as well, anything goes.
The idea is to about to search this Topic and find where "XX " Beer is available.
Tips are always needed as well, so go to it guys.
Cheers Spud (still without my Newcastle Brown)
Brewing, well awaiting to be - Newcastle Nut, American Pale
Keg - Scottish 80/-, Eda's Milk Stout
Next in line - Choc /Hazelnut Porter, Dry Knickers Stout then, Classic American Pils, Kolsch.

Duvel, Chimay Blue, Red and White - Cold Storage - I love Belgians :mrgreen:
Chimay blue Grand Reserve - Denise wine shops - I've seen 2004 and 2007

Can anyone find Forbidden Fruit anymore? Seems like its out everywhere. Only place I know that still have it is Ooster, about $14 a bottle :(
Cold storage and NTUC used to sell them at $4.

Went to NTUC @ Bukit Timah a few weeks back. Saw "Outback" beers on sale. So picked up Pilsener, Pale Ale and Black Opeal. Not bad I must say. The Black Opeal reminds me of Hunty's Soctish Ale.

Just noticed that Carrefour has a house-brand belgian "Bier de Abbaye", $13.80 for a 6-pack. Bought it for tasting this weekend, lets see how it goes.

Yeah saw it too. But are you sure it's $13.80? I though I saw it for $15.+

popped a couple over the weekend for tasting, the bottles are actually 250ml only, doh! should have paid more attention before I bought it. It tasted fresh, although there were no sediments at all, looked filtered. It has the typical Belgian spiciness, and slight malty backbone in the finish. At 6.5% ABV, this is quite a heavy beer, but not quite typical of the abbey style belgians. It does lack the complexity of the abbey styles too. This beer is very much like the mass-market Belgians like Leffe, I won't be surprised that Carrefour commissioned the Leffe brewery to brew it for them.

Nice beer, was pleasantly surprised.

Carrefour are pretty big in that end of the woods so u are right on the button..
have to say tho the Leffe i tried in France on both side were 100% better than any I tasted here..
Hugely popular drink, the French even called it "their local Brand" in Nice LOL...
