Pink Blossoms Brewing

You can’t get craft beer any fresher than at Pink Blossoms Brewing. The microbrewery located in the Ubi industrial area comes outfitted with a tasting room—making Pink Blossoms the first microbrewery in Singapore to have its own tasting room on-site. Sitting at the end of a row of industrial coffeeshops, it can be hard to miss; look out for the giant beer banner hanging in place of a signboard.

Inside the all-glass space, local artworks adorn the walls—with a cheeky “Live Brewer” exhibit that gives you a literal window into the brewing happening backstage. Pink Blossoms operates on a Bring Your Own Food (BYOF) basis, but also has a partnership with a Japanese fusion bistro across the road, where you can order dishes like mentaiko pasta, delivered fresh to go with your beer.

Take a seat at the high tables or right at the counter, where 10 Pink Blossoms taps pour forth freshly brewed beer. To maintain the consistency of beer tapped, only five taps are ever used at one time. Of these are the two unique signatures: the Hundred Years Milk Stout and Lean on Me, a New England Pale Ale. The Milk Stout (5.5% ABV) is surprisingly light and smooth, with a zing hiding aromatic notes of chocolate and espresso; perfect for glugging in our hot weather. For those who like their craft beers fruity, Lean on Me (5.5%), generously dry-hopped for an overwhelming fruity taste, is the brew for you, with notes of passionfruit and mango rising right to the top.

Also worth a glass is the Saison (7.2%), an easy-drinking, refreshing brew that’s deceptively potent. Extremely dry and low on funk, it offers a distinct clove pepper aftertaste that gives the beer an overall crispness. The higher alcohol content will give your after-work indulgence a little extra kick.

Currently, there are also coffee stout shots (5.5%) and a double dry-hopped New England IPA on tap, but you’re better off spending your dollars on the flagship products. Prices are between $12.50 and $14.50—a fair price for fresh craft beer and a peek into the elusive brewing process.
