Hehehehe, Pump Room. First time I went there it was in the afternoon, the place was dead and it was a bit awkward. Next visit was in the evening, during happy hour (very important to know this stuff in Singapore) when it was relatively busy and we sat outside and had a jolly good time. Of course itís fairly sanitised in the touristy Singapore centre vein but quite enjoyable. Good, fun service and they try and pump you full of beer very quickly - I approve. Beers are quite good, but the lager suits the climate much better than stuff like the IPA.

On a couple of visits over a few days I stopped by for lunch and I really liked the vibe of the place. It was generally quiet when I was there which didnít do much for the ambiance but I didnít mind, the PR has that chilled laid back feel. The beers were solid, some of the best I had in Singapore, especially the IPA. As for the food, I enjoyed the dishes I had ordered and matched well to the beers. And the staff were hard to flaw, very switched on and professional but at the same time blended in well with the relaxed, chilled vibe. My favourite place to drink beer in Singapore along side Archipelago. ***UPDATE July 2012. Another Singapore beer establishment thatís gone downhill over the years. Beers were overly sweet and cloying and again we couldnít finish our glasses. Horrible environment to drink beer in tacky area known as Clark Quay.

Itís in a very touristy area. The decor is artificial (pillars cloaked in white fibre glass to look like white cloth drapes), but late on a Staurday afternoon it had a real pub vibe - small groups of diverse young people (probably mostly tourists) drinking and talking. So despite its crap decor, its got a fairly good feel (or had atb 5:30pm on Sat). The service was slow, but when they noticed me they were very friendly (or did they see me scribbling notes?) . Good selection - their own beers, Archipelago and imports. Didnít try the food. I hit happy hour - 2 for 1 (but have to have the same beer), so the value was OK, but even doubled up it seems expensive. If you are going to Singapore, definitely go there - it is top three for beer.

Go for the Wheat Ale (first and foremost) & other In-House Brews from this cosy Microbrewery. Their beers are the main thing, factor and consideration. Having said that, the decor and layout are great. You feel like you are in a big lounge area with the most important aspect of the clean and preen kitchen adjacent - in this case, the Microbrewery. Warm romantic lighting and tip top staff add to the gloss. A great place for functions, gatherings or, just to space out. There are televisions for the sports fans and, a solid band for those like it live. Foodís average only however. Prices are a bit steep, but on the lower end of this spectrum (save for the micorbrewed beers that are worth every dime you pay). Nice selection of audible music to accompany your swig when the band is off duty. Overall, a homely comfortable locality you have no qualms revisiting over and over again. The service standards are exceptional. Pay particular attention to the bartenders. These fellows are pros.

A very Singapore brewpub. Itís located in the new(ish) weird and wonderful Clarke Quay pedestrian precinct, all of which is sheltered by a vast transparent roof like bubble-wrap and cooled by giant phallic air conditioners. (Stand behind one and tell me it doesnít look like a hard-on with balls.) The pub was absolutely heaving on the Saturday night we visited, with bouncers on the door and a long queue for entry. We werenít allowed in because my brother-in-law was wearing open-toe sandals, but were permitted to sit at an outside table, which allowed us to watch the passing parade and desperate queuers. A band was on stage inside fronted by a transvestite. All in all, this is not your typical brewpub. For most of the clientŤle, the beers seemed to be irrelevant, which is a pity because the five on offer were pretty solid. Personally, I prefer the beers at Brewerkz, but each to their own.

This is my new favorite place in Singapore!
It opened in December 2006, they have a brewmaster graduated in Edinburgh and who made experience in the US (if I remember). At the time of my visit in Oct 2007 they had the regular 5 beers on draught and one seasonal. The beers are very good, best in town. I was there 2 times on weekends nights, there was a nice crowd and joyful feeling.

Great location riverside at Clarke Quay. Outdoor seating within earshot of live music, indoor stage also. Very clean and flavorful beers of wide-ranging styles. Great pasta along with pub style entrees: burgers, fish & chips and Australian amenities. Happy hour 12-6. Comfortable setting.
