JiBiru Craft Beer Bar is where you’d go if you want a quick and affordable lunch fix in town (they have substantial lunch sets from $12.80) while sneaking in a pint of exquisite craft beer. Although the seating space is non air-conditioned, there's an endless breeze from the giant overhead fans to keep you cool. This Japanese staple in 313 Somerset has been serving fine Japanese brews for a while now, and even stocks an extensive collection of bottled Hitachino Nest, Shiga Kogen and Kinshachi beers. At any given time, there are six rotational beers on tap like Sapporo and Hitachino — check their website for the latest shipments. If it’s your first time having Japanese craft beer, order the Tasting Flight to try ($13.50 for four before 6pm) and have the perfectly grilled Hibiki Set ($36.50 for 12 skewers) on the side to share.

Boasting 23 craft brews on tap, this bar in Jalan Besar serves fantastic beers from all over the world like Mikkeller and To Øl, paired alongside tasty Asian eats — a match made in heaven, in our humble opinion. From light, fruity ales to smoky dark porters and even a current gluten-free offering from Mikkeller, trust them when they say there is a beer for everyone! Prices average at $9 for a half pint (250ml) and $17 for a pint (500ml). When in doubt, simply approach the knowledgeable servers for recommendations and even a quick taste. The food menu sees plenty of familiar flavours with the likes of Har Cheong Gai (prawn paste wings, $12.50), Asian Poutine (fries slathered in your choice of chilli crab, laksa, satay or salted egg yolk sauce, $9) and Garlic Fried Rice ($7.50). The relaxed, retro vibes, great beers and friendly servers make this a great spot for a chillout date as well as casual drinks with friends.

Located on the second floor of Holland Village Shopping Centre, Thirsty Craft Beer carries over 200 labels of bottled craft beers and ciders (from $5.90)! There are no beers on tap, so your only move here is to carry and go (there's a one dollar charge should you want to sit on one of the bar stools to sip your chilled beer). Zoom in on the wall of best-selling craft beers and look out for the Anderson Valley Poleeko Pale Ale ($7.40) and the Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA ($9.80) — both come highly recommended by the staff! To save time, we suggest checking the availability of the beers on their website before making a trip down. Thirsty encourages buying in six, 12 or 24-packs (mix and match is possible), and throws in bulk discounts to sweeten the deal — look out for those when you're getting drinks for your next beer party! Pro tip: Hardcore craft beer drinkers can subscribe to their three-month beer subscription box (from $178). You'll get a surprise box of six, 12 or 24 bottles of beer (classics and seasonals included) delivered to your doorstep every month.
