Ask any beer lover, and he or she will tell you that factory-produced beer is unlikely to taste as rich as craft beer. Why so? This is because craft beer is a beer made in a traditional or non-mechanised way by a small brewery.

Two common metrics used for craft beer are ABV and IBU. Alcohol – Alcohol By Volume (ABV) varies according to different craft beer styles, ranging from around 3% to more than 20%. International Bitterness Unit (IBU) is the measure of hops’ contribution to a beer’s bitterness. It can range from 0 to over 100. 

Looking to quaff down a pint of craft beer to satisfy your alcohol cravings or bitterness-loving tastebuds? In this article, we’ve gathered a list of the 12 best craft beers in Singapore for you to quell your desire for traditionally brewed beer.
