A huge and stunning location inside and out. Unfortunately, as I am findinding often in Singapore, service is very utilitarian. Lots of beers on tap and a sampler flight. A good central location makes this a good stop.
Located on Clark Quay, it’s pleasantly situated with views of the river and surroundings. The beers range from very nice to below average, but there’s a decent range of beers to try. Food is nice with the portions generous. The staff were friendly and service was fine on my few visits.
Nice inside and out. The outdoor patio is sprawling in the late afternoon, affording nice breezes during dusk along the riverside. The inside is very large and quite beery. Successively smaller glasses of beer painted on the floor lead you to the washroom. They play beer-themed audiobooks in the washroom of all things--I really appreciated that! Has high chairs around the bar but the bar itself is not used for seating but for staff to collect the beers. There is a pool table and sports on TVs. I also appreciate their listing all the other local brewpubs on the chalkboard to create solidarity and encourage ppl to patronize them all, even though technically they are competition. They list the exact hop profiles for their hoppy beers too. Pretty nice place with a fun and broad selection of house beer, one of which (Hopback) is cask-conditioned and hand-pulled. They bottle some of the beers, too.

August 2006. Maybe most of their beers don’t rock, but at least there is always a large selection, maybe 10 beers at a time. Some of the beers are also available to take away, at least grab the X-tra. The bar is in a nice location on the river quay, expect to see more ang-moh than local people... Undoubtly the first place to visit, in Singapore.
October 2007. I’m less excited by this place I had 4 beers recently that really sucked. For beers I would rather go to Archipelago (for spicy original beers) or The Pump Room (for solid straight brews).

Visited on July 8, 2013. Situated a bit in from Merchants road, and rather difficult to cross the road unless you do it in the very start/end of the street. I started off down the one side, that proved to be the wrong one of course, so needed to backtrack to find the crossing over. If you end up walking west like I did, with Eu Tong Sen St. / New Bridge Road in your back, the place is on your right hand side, so make sure to start down Merchant Rd. on the right hand side as well. Rather large seating area, both indoors and out. Smoking area in a few designated places outdoors. Fresh nice toilets where you pass parts of the brewery walking in. Didn’t eat, but saw plenty of others do and looked rather popular for it. Located in an area easy to walk to, if you know where to cross the road, and with plenty of other bars and restaurants as well as bustling nightlife around. Prices change depending on what time of day you visit. Flights/samples available, 4 for $14, with their regular and seasonal brews I could finish 8 beers here. WiFi available. Nice area with some water around. Very nice, fast, friendly service. Didn’t check out the bottles at all. One of the guys working here saw me wearing a Hypocrisy shirt and started talked about Swedish metal music with me.
A beautiful brewpub, situated on Clarke’s Quay, beutiful terrace overlooking the Singapore River, with corregated metal walls, large dining area. Food is expensive, beer is expensive, Singapore is expensive. But this is the best brewpub in the country. 4 X 90 ml samples for 13$, Western menu.
Just along the riverside from Sque. Massive and, in 1997, groundbreaking. However .... why did the dozen or so traveling gents who propped up the bar mid afternoon intent on drinking either pints or serious assortment have to be bombarded with third-generation cloned heavy metal music, and why would be want to watch the German Bundesliga or South Korean premier league? And are a dozen decent bottled beers enough for a beer bar in a rising star beer country? If you have helped to make a market in beer you have to keep up with your customers and know what challenges them or else what they are likely to like.
We sat outside in a weeknight and had a very enjoyable time. Most of us had a burger of some variety, which were all good. I snagged a flight and all were solid to very good. Service lacked a bit. Right in the river so the scenery was nice. Very expensive but this was tourist Sungapore so duh. Would drink copious amounts of Brewerkz if I lived here.
I've been coming here now since 2006 on and off and I have never been disappointed. Awesome selection of craft ales brewed on-site which is the reason to come here. Decent selection of bottled beers from around the world. Great food and great service too. Can't recommend highly enough for any beer lover.
Visited on a Friday and Sunday evening in November 2016. This is a large place with a nice location by the river on Clarke Quay. (located very close to my hotel, Swissotel Merchant Court) The place was not that crowded, the service was good. The best beer that I tried was the Brewerkz XIPA. They did have 25 guest bottles, among them I noticed Modern Times Lomaland, Orval and BrewDog Dogma. The toilets were clean, Wifi and samplers were available. I liked this place despite the high prices. (beer in Singapore cost more than in Sweden)
