Smith Street Taps

Last Wednesday, Smith Street Taps officially opened its door in Singapore (unofficially it had a soft launch about a month prior to that and had been serving customer since). Smith Street Taps is the idea culminated by Meng Chao of “Brewers’ Craft” and Daniel of “The Good Beer Company” bringing to the Singapore craft beer drinking community with the first outlet that sells craft beer solely from the taps. Located at the hustle and bustle of Singapore’s famous Chinatown, it is the most unconventional location as it is opened in the hawker centre of Chinatown Complex.


The idea
One of the most important reason to open such an outlet at a hawker centre according to the co-owner, Daniel was plain and simple, the food. Beer drinkers love their beers, but as important the food that goes with it too. What better place than one of the largest hawker centre in Singapore with freedom to order any type of food from the vast amount of selections available to pair with the quality draught beers. Smith Street Taps opened from a 3m x 3m space is operating on average 6 varieties of beers with maximum capacity of 8 taps. However, maintaining the operations of these taps day in day out within such a small space presents a whole new set of challenges of its own that both the owners take pride in.

The million dollar question…. The Beer Menu?

According to Daniel, Sapporo will be the permanently fixture in the shop. The rest of the taps’ selection will be based on the seasonal availability of quality craft beer that they can get. Since the soft launch about a month ago, a wide variety of craft beer had been made available. These includes Pale Ales, IPAs, Porters, Stouts, Belgium tripel and German Weissbiers. The variety will continue to grow and when you decide to take a surprise visit to the stall, you might be on the receiving end of the surprise. If you are not the adventurous type, check on Smith Street Taps’ Facebook page for the latest list of beers on the taps.
