, Singapore’s brew nerds name their desert island beers

Roland Utama of Thirsty’s

Modern Times Fortunate Islands ($8.70 at Thirsty’s)
“Well, I’m stranded on an island, but fortunately the island has beer! I love the massive dose of tropical aroma in this beer, think mango, tangerine and passionfruit. It’s satisfyingly refreshing.”

Kona Big Wave Golden Ale ($7.10 at Thirsty’s)
“Go to the beach, take a swim and enjoy the big waves! This Hawaiian beer conjures images of a tropical holiday; the sun, the beach and the surf. Light in body, this golden ale has a lovely hop aroma.” 

Lost Coast Great White ($7.90 at Thirsty’s)
“Lie down at the beach while enjoying this light and refreshing beer. For a hot day, you can’t go wrong with a crisp wheat ale like the Great White. Hint of citrus, refreshingly light body and the crispness of crystal clear mountain water makes this beer the ultimate thirst-quencher on a scorching day.”

Natasha Hong, homebrewer of Beer Can Lah

Beavertown Black Betty Black IPA (back in stock early Jan at Thirsty’s)
“This year saw the rise of the Cascadian Dark Ale and we particularly love Black Betty for its lovely West Coast-style C-hops (columbus, chinook and citra). It lends its roasted malt backbone a nice tropical fruity nose and flavor.”

Evil Twin Femme Fatale Brett IPA ($20.60 from Brewer’s Craft)
“The fermentation of this hoppy India pale with brettanomyces yeast lends the brew a dry, tart and funky flavor on the tongue. Good for warm, lonely nights on said deserted island.”

A bottle of our homebrew (available at beer trade shows)
“We love our IPAs and we make a pretty mean one with a citrusy, tropical edge to counter a drier, maltier body. It’s the perfect desert island drink, and the best part is that we’ll nurture the yeast in the bottle and make even more beer on the island.”

Daniel Goh of The Good Beer Company

Cigar City Double Barrel Aged Marshal Zhukov’s
“A blended imperial stout from beers aged in both bourbon and brandy barrels.”

Stone Crime and Stone Punishment ($50-55 at 99 Bottles)
“There’s no real reason to live if one is stranded on a desert island, really, especially if it’s a lifetime without beer. These two crazy chilli-infused big beers will kill me near instantly if I drink them fast enough. “
