October 21, 2020 – 9:30 am Comments Off

The month of October sees the birth of a well established watering hole in Singapore, Nickeldime Drafthouse. Situated at a strategic location of Novena, it’s just 5 minutes walk from the MRT station.

Nickeldime Drafthouse




The Concept
Quality food paired with quality beer at the price that does not hurt the wallet for men and the purse for the ladies. At the corner of the shop is a section setup as the bottle beer shop of which attractively priced beers are available for takeaway.



Spacious seatings and beautiful retro decoration makes the whole experience relaxing and conducive for some good companies and conversations.



The Beers
Craftbeers from American, British to Belgium. From Lager, India Pale Ale to Porter, the varieties of beer will spoil you for choice. If the bottled beers variety is not enough, there’s 15 taps with fresh from the kegs are served everyday. Proceed to the counter and look for the friendly bartender for what they have to offer that day on draft.


The Food
Beer is definitely the theme here. As if the vast amount of beer selection is not enough, the food is inspired and infused with beer. With good selection of bar bites, pizza, burgers and ribs for the protein hungry patrons, the food will not disappoint.



The Conclusion
Definitely should come and experience Nickeldime Drafthouse if you are a local. If you are vising Singapore, include this in your must-try list for craftbeer place to visit.

Tokyo Black

September 26, 2020 – 10:20 am Comments Off

This can Tokyo Black porter beer brewed by Yo-Ho Brewing, Japan with 5% ABV.

Appearance of this beer looks dark.. brown, with browny head that fizzle off, leaving thin layer of froth.

Nose note a hop sweetness, kinda floral, with roasted malt, some hint of smokiness

Taste like the smell, roasty malt, quite fair amount of hop floral like taste, mild for a porter, bitterness isn’t much powering, toffee like taste..
Mouthfeel was nice, smooth, medium body abit light bitter in aftertaste, carbonation is good, slight dry finish

This first porter i tried from japanese brewery, quite a good one, worth to try. I got this can from Brewers’ Craft in Singapore.

Beer Pairing: Hokkien Keow Teow

September 7, 2020 – 7:46 am Comments Off

Most people will order Hokkien Mee, but I love Keow Teow and normally I’ll order mix. Ordering or add Keow Teow to Hokkien mee will make the texture of the food feel more sticky and oily which make it more sinful.

To paired with this dish is actually not that simple, the taste of the food is salty, aromatic in pork, some light seafood prawn sweetness and thick black soy sauce sweetness. It’s a mix of few different sweet and salty in blend of taste plus the taste of wok or char flavour. Because of the unique blend of flavour I’ll got for Weissbier to enhance the taste and aroma, to give extra malt flavour to it.

I may also go for stout with roasted malt taste but a chocolate stout will work better as the aroma of chocolate will balance up nicely. Can also try porter but have to have those sweet porter rather then heavy roasted coffee style which may cut off some taste.

One more on the list I would go for is Hoppy lager for the citrusy aroma with the heavy bitter. This will work if you are heavy “sambal” person. Some people love to eat with lots of sambal, that’s where this beer will paired nicer with enhance of the refreshing taste and the fruity note of the beer will blend well with chili.

Many may not notice the fruit and chili combination but if you have eaten fruit rojak then you notice that sambal/chili blend quite well with certain tropical fruits like mango and pineapple because of their sourness and sweetness. Let me know what you think, if you start pairing your food with beer. Cheers!

Hamer & Sikkel

August 29, 2021 – 8:00 am 1 Comment

This Hamer & Sikkel brewed in Netherlands by Brouwerij De Molen contain 5.2ABV style porter.

Appearance of this beer appear to have dark brownish and cloudy. The head was light brownish, creamy, thick foam-like and interestingly lasted for quite awhile.

Nose a roasted malts, some chocolaty and roasted beans aromas.

Took a mouthful, taste quite similar to the nose, malty, mild chocolate notes, and slight hint of bitterness. Mouthfeel medium body, slight carbonation, quite smooth on palate, and aftertaste of dryness and hint of bitter lingering.

Interesting porter, from the nose aromas to the mouthfeel palate, it didn’t lose its character.. chocs, brown barley malts and oatmeal all were there.. and bitter part .. nevertheless a good porter.

Tried this at Brewers’ Craft, Singapore..
