[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="15px"][vc_column_text]As you sample brews from all over the world at the upcoming Beerfest Asia, leave room for some home-grown tipples as Singapore producers are putting out some new drinks for the event. A Beerfest veteran, craft beer maker Archipelago Brewery, for example, is launching 10 new flavours, including Crouching Tiger, Flying Barrel, an ale fermented using three different yeast strains, pushing its ABV (alcohol by volume) to a boozy 15 per cent.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]On returning to Singapore after spending 10 years in San Diego and Michigan, Ms Keira Herr and her husband missed the huge variety of craft beers available in the United States. Tired of being "severely deprived", Ms Herr and a friend decided to set up Draft & Craft, a southern Californian restaurant and craft beer joint in Circular Road. Besides Californian food staples such as tacos and grilled cheese sandwiches, it serves artisanal beers brewed in small batches in the US.

Singapore earned the number one spot on Lonely Planet’s list of the top ten countries to visit in 2015. Alongside this victory, Singapore is also emerging as a force to be reckoned with in the world of art. Identified as one of the “Art Cities of the Future,” Singapore has pursued various public programs to cultivate the arts to become the reigning art hub in Asia. The colonial-era Gillman Barracks were restored and opened in 2012 as an art enclave housing top international galleries, and the brand-new National Gallery Singapore is expected to open this year.
