A vast trendy place in the Suntec City business and shopping district with prices to match. It’s not exactly German style but has been done up in a quite nice, if artificial, way. There’s 3 floors and an outside terrace. 3 beers and one non-alcoholic available when I visited. Note that the toilet is a fair trek up on the third floor. Service was decent enough and the 2:1 deal during happy hour makes the prices more palatable. The guy serving me was also happy to make my second "free" beer a different one, though I understand this isn’t always the case. No wifi but it’s not needed as there’s free public wifi in the Suntec area.
A rather Tardis like German brewpub in Suntec City. Rather small looking on the outside but massive on the inside. Brought back painful memories of a former girlfriend. Lots of copper and brewing equipment on the ground floor with a couple of entertainers singing in between the brewing gear. The food looks good but I didn’t eat. No wifi but friendly staff. They had three locally brewed beers available when I visited. Not a tickers paradise but well worth a visit. Very popular with the locals.
Ah Singapore - where you walk past two shops selling Rolex watches in air conditioned shopping arcades before somewhere that sells convenience foods/drinks. And a complete absence of streetfood. This Paulaner brewpub is located in the business district and consequently is the most sterile "unGerman" place you are ever likely to visit. Where else would you be expected to take a lift to the toilets? They brew three beers on site (a Helles, Dunkel and Hefe) which are quite reasonable and well presented (albeit very expensive) but unfortunately not the pilsner which is the best Paulaner beer in my opinion. There is a tedious table service which means you wait ages for your beers to arrive and you are charged a "service fee" in addition to the GST tax which is not listed on the menu prices. A band plays in the elevated section behind the bar where the copper tanks are located. Some flat screens for the sports and an outside section for smokers. We did not try the food. One advantage is that you can hijack the WiFi from the Conrad hotel next door if you are staying there.
Loud music, lots of copper, restaurant on level 2 and booths inside for business. Street terrace. Bavarian tapas through to heavyweight. And one or two perfectly decent beers. Er, that’s it. They are great pioneers of beer in the world Paulaner but they lack flair.

German brewpub with good German quality beers. The place reminded me of Brauhaus joh. Albrecht in Hamburg (Same style). The staff was friendly and I enjoyed the visit.

Visited on July 9, 2013. Difficult to find even when having maps. Got off the MRT and walked around until I found it, but was a bit lost of my bearings even so. Busy roads close, and parking might be available in the surrounding area, but I wouldn’t know. Didn’t eat. No WiFi available. Brewery on display in the middle of the bar. Music played, after a bit a girl and a dude got up on a platform by the brewery, sang and played music, most guests didn’t seem very interested in the entertainment though. No idea if thay had any bottles available. Smallest servings of their Munich Lager and Dark were 30 cl. They also had a Hefe-Weissbier on tap when I visited, this could only be bought by the 50 cl glass though. Nice fast service. Fairly centrally located, but at least for me hard to find, so I just got a cab out of there since I was going back to my hostel anyhow at the end of my night. Plenty of indoors seating including upstairs, some outdoors, but mainly traffic outside. Decent place to go to for a few beers if you are close to it or just want to find some German style beers in Singapore, but if you are on a limited time trip, I’d say other places are more worth spending time in than here.
Happy hour occurs during a large chunk of the afternoon so go early and you should be ok. Still overpriced but what are you gonna do. The service is friendly. Atmosphere is what you would expect, corporate with German theme. Bar on bottom, restaurant on top. 3 beers on tap including seasonal. All in decent condition although the Brauhaus Diamond seasonal was a tad buttery.
Go at happy hour - two beers for the price of one makes them decidedly affordable. Insanely expensive otherwise. Not the easiest to find based on the address alone either, I’m still not sure how we found it. It’s near a footbridge overpass thing over Raffles Blvd. Faux Bavarian fitout done pretty well and the beers are pretty decent. Worth a look but behind Brewerkz and Pump House.
