It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday. Man are you going to get this song stuck in your head.

Our favourite day of the week is here and what better way to celebrate than chilling over a couple of cold ones? With the wide variety of beers and microbreweries now available, it’s tough just having to decide on a bar for some afterwork drinks. So from pubs to microbreweries, here’s our guide to 15 top beers and where you can get them.

As the winner of World’s Best Amber Ale 2014, we’ll leave it to the professionals to describe this awesome beer available at Thirsty.

“Chestnut-amber, almost no head finish. Fruity hop aroma and geranium. Aggresively bitter and slightly vegetal. Very dry finish.”

“Good red colour, good carbonation and beautiful hop nose.”

As the leading craft beer shop in Singapore, Thirsty offers a large selection of craft beers from around the world! We recommend Bell’s Amber Ale – a mixture of toasted grain, light caramel notes, subtle floral taste, capped with a clean bitterness. We love the balance of all the flavours, plus this drink goes superbly well with food.

Oxwell & Co is housed in a heritage shophouse along Ann Siang Hill. That’s also where they brew their drinks in-house. We tried the Oxhorn lager (an infusion of nutmeg leaf and nutmeg) and found a light citrusy note from its calamansi and orange ingredients. It may not be a beer, but their signature home-made G&T is also a must try.

Oxwell & Co.

Try their Kiasu Stout from Jungle Beer, an Imperial style beer brewed with five malts, three hops, chicory and cane sugar. The beer is great by itself or paired with dark chocolate.
