Read till the end to find out how you can score 2 beers for $20, food discounts and other early bird deals.


Sip on over 20 local and imported beers like spiced mead and passionfruit wheat


The extensive selection of beers will have you spoilt for choice. Varieties include the exotic Pilsner Urquell (served at Almost Famous Craft Beer Bar), brewed all the way in Czech Republic.

As the first lager in the world that’s of the pale or “blonde” variety, its skyrocketing popularity led to subsequent versions getting named pils or pilsner as well.

With the tart BlackBerry Sour (Singapore, served at Brewerkz), smooth and malty Hope Summer Ale (Singapore, served at Brewlander & Co) and refreshingly crisp Moa Original Lager (New Zealand, served at Moa Tiki Bar & Grill), there’ll be a brew to suit all palates within your squad.

Variety is the spice of life, so make sure you and your buddies opt for different beers and have a grand sampling amongst each other.

Don’t miss the Hacker-Pschorr (Germany, served at Frieda), comprising of 60% wheat and 40% barley to make for a 100% full-flavoured brew.

For those looking to carbo-load in preparation of a proper liquid buffet, try the Laugen Breadstick accompanied by a grilled slice of Meatloaf with Mustard and Gherkin. A signature offering from Frieda, the medley of flavours and textures are sure to hit the spot.

Frieda also has Rye Sourdough Bread paired with Farmer Grill Pork Sausage or Smoked Beef Sausage. Both are equally delectable and go perfectly with a swig of Frieda’s house draught.

The Almost Famous Craft Beer Bar will throw your taste buds a curveball with the Jack&Cheese, a sandwich of unique flavour and texture sensations comprising of cheese and young jackfruit.

Other delicious tidbits include traditional kacang putih with a spicy Szechuan and sour plum kick, as well as chilli tater tots doused with Beyond meat bolognese – a plant-based meat substitute that even vegans can consume.

All this, plus loads more tantalising options available at the event for your ultimate indulgence.

DJ Red will also be spinning at the event, bringing over 5 years of deejaying experience to the (turn)table. Having performed for Garena, Sony and Pierre Balmain, rest assured that her high-octane sets and heart-thumping beat drops will set the tone for a night you won’t forget.

As good tunes set the mood and get the party started, you’ll also be able to partake in classic bar games. Seasoned pros will undoubtedly have a competitive edge during the Beer Pong and Cup Flip challenge, where champions take home prizes such as complimentary beers and vouchers from the tenants. That, plus bragging rights, of course.
