Things You Should Be Doing This Weekend (17 Sep – 23 Sep 2018)

Over 263,000 fans attended the F1 Grand Prix Singapore over the past 3 days, achieving the second highest attendance rate ever since the inaugural race in 2008. No surprise, considering that there were performances put up by Jay Chou, Dua Lipa and Martin Garrix. But you’ll be surprised if you think that that’s all you get to do in September. As with all Mondays, we will be showing you what are the spots to check out over this week!

Craft Singapore 2018

Craft beer are beer produced by craft brewery or a microbrewery that produces small amounts of beer, as compared to large-scale corporate breweries, such as Tiger, Carlsberg, Guinness. As they are produced in smaller quantities, the craft breweries tend to emphasise more on quality, flavour and brewing technique. And precisely because of the smaller quantity, these craft beers are not often found in Singapore. And you will be awestruck to know that Singapore has its own local microbreweries as well! Drop by at Craft Singapore 2018 held over this weekend at Maxwell Road to try the different varieties of craft beer concocted by the local microbreweries!
