So, my last post was supposed to be about my trip to Tiger Breweries, but I got too distracted about the idea of a tiger fighting a merlion and felt the need to talk about that instead. This is the level of procrastination I’ve been working with lately, its fun.
I’m not usually a huge beer fan, but since Tiger is basically the unofficial beer of Singapore and the brewery is a pretty big attraction, I figured it was worth my while to check out.
There were a couple videos about the history of the country and the production process. Turns out, glass bottles are actually cheaper to use in Singapore, because Tiger recycles and reuses them.
Then, there was a session on how to properly pour a Tiger beer. Apparently I’ve been doing it wrong because you need a tap with a washing station built in.
In addition to Tiger, the company also produces Heineken, Anchor, Baron’s, ABC, Archipelago and Bintang. Personally, I don’t know why everyone loves Tiger so much, the tour concludes with a 45 minute free flow in the Tiger Tavern where you can try all the different brews, and I have to say, Archipelago is my personal favourite. It’s a microbrew, so they experiment with composition and flavours a lot more. Their current concoction had a summery citrus taste.
