Brewerkz microbrewery and restaurant

Brewerkz microbrewery and restaurant is THE place for a beer in Singapore, in my opinion!A number of beers are brewed on site, including the award winning India Pale Ale (which won the World Beer Cup Gold Medal in the English style beer category in 2004).

Eight beers are available on draught (wheat ale, golden ale, Czech-style pilsner, Chinese rice beer, India Pale Ale, Brown Ale, Darkside Ale and stout).
Belgian beers (7-9%) are available in bottles and Brewberriez fruit beers are also available.
Prices vary according to the time of day. The happiest Happy Hour is between noon and 3pm when a pint of draught beer costs just S$3 (1.10 GBP / 1.60 Euros). Between 3pm and 6pm, a pint will cost you S$6, between 6pm and 9pm it will cost you S$9 and between 9pm and closing time it will cost you S$12.
Alternatively, jugs of beer (holding between 3 and 4 pints) are available. Between 3pm and 6pm, these cost S$15 (I believe they cost just S$12 between noon and 3pm) and S$22+ after 6pm.
Another popular choice is the "seven set sampler" - a chance to try, in small glasses, seven different draught beers.
During my stay in the city, I tried the entire selection of draught beers with the exception of stout which was unavailable at the time. My preferred pint was the wheat ale - a light beer, similar in taste to Hoegaarden - highly recommended!
There are numerous tables outside under a canopy, while the air-conditioned interior has large screen TVs showing live sports (including live English Premiership football on ESPN).An extensive food menu (generally of an American nature - with chicken wings, steaks etc) is available, but I found the food to be expensive so never tried it. No dress code - feel free to turn up in shorts, T-shirt and flip-flops!Update: I revisited Brewerkz in late March 2006 during a short stopover in the city and the beer menu had changed. The wheat ale (which I was really looking forward to drinking!) and a couple of the other draught beers had been replaced by 3 different brews, the closest of which to wheat ale was the "kolsch ale". It seems that different beers are brewed on a rotation basis.
