If you’re nearby, check out The Alpine Restaurant & Microbrewery. Located on the second floor of Snow City, this is a cool place for you to dine and relax.

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="800"] Image credit: Sethlui[/caption]

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.

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="1000"] Image credit: Sethlui[/caption]

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.

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.
