From the folks behind Little Island Brewing Co in Changi Village comes Alchemist Beer Lab, Asia’s first-of-its-kind beer-infused bar that allow the brewers to introduce any type of ingredient into their beers, like pomegranate, salted plum and star anise. Come with your pint-loving friends between 12pm-7pm to enjoy the beers at $12 a pint or share a party pack of any three choices at $30 (after 7pm, one beer for $15, party pack for $38). For the adventurous, try the Dead Gose, a concoction of mosambi orange and salted plum infused with ale or the Hopdog, cascade hops infused with lager. The high-ceilinged space in the basement of South Beach Tower also has eight draft beers from its sister outlet, Little Island Brewing Co including the Sister Golden Ale, Singapore Pale Ale and Old Black Magic — the latter is a dry Irish nitro stout that clinched a Gold Medal at the 2016 Asia Beer Awards. For light bites, opt for the crowd favourite Smoked Wagyu Brisket Tortilla ($16) — tender yet flavourful wagyu beef brisket served with green tomato chutney, pickled onions and topped with a dollop of sour cream or the indulgent Duck Fat Chips ($12) served with chipotle salt and preserved lemon aioli on the side.
