Craft beer seems to be taking the UK and US by storm, with no pub deemed complete these days without at least one tap serving a hoppy IPA or fruited Berliner Weisse. With that in mind, it’ll come as no surprise that craft beer is enjoying a huge boom in Singapore.

So if you’re an expat with a passion for craft, you can drink your fill in some of Singapore’s most popular craft beer pubs and microbreweries.

TAP Craft Beer Bar

Boasting 20 different rotating taps, as well as a wide array of domestic and imported bottles, TAP has gone from strength to strength since opening.

They have two locations, one close to Capitol Piazza and one in Robertson Quay, and are renowned for the chilled-out, no nonsense American style of their bars.
