We love to drink but seldom question or ponder how this beverage that we love so much is crafted. That’s why we accepted LeVeL33 Brewery Tour Singapore exclusive brewery tour the moment we received it! With the promise of pints after pints of freshly crafted beer and a magnificent view of the Marina Bay area, we can’t wait to start the tour of the world’s highest urban microbrewery. Led by Brewmaster Gabriel Garcia, we will find out what it takes to brew 150 metres above ground, ensure the quality is kept consistently high and produce a delicious selection of beers that will have customers flowing in each day.
LeVeL33 Brewery Tour Singapore – What’s The Deal?
Priced at $58++ per person, our 30-minute tour is actually a new offering by LeVel33 that is available for bookings every first Saturday of each month. The experience includes a half-litre taster beer paddle of LeVeL33’s regular and seasonal beers, a beer tasting platter to share and a terrace table with uninterrupted views of the Singapore skyline and waterfront. There is, however, a requirement to have a minimum of 6 participants to start the tour to a maximum of 15 participants. We started ours with their new seasonal beer – The Session Pale Ale.
LeVeL33 Brewery Tour Singapore – What’re The Key Takeaways?
During the tour, we got to learn about the brewing process in the specially developed, eight-tonne state-of-the-art microbrewery system, which comprises 12 tanks and the two copper kettles custom-made for LeVeL33 by SALM & Co Gmbh, one of Europe’s oldest manufacturers.
Given that LeVeL33 only brews onsite and never distributes its beers beyond the premises, the guided tour will give you a rare insight into what it takes to plan the brewing schedule, manage the tanks and brew five different beers in the middle of the busy financial district. We shall not reveal too much in the post, you should sign up and experience the tour yourself!
LeVeL33 Brewery Tour Singapore – The Real Fun Starts!
1. Blond Lager
Inspired by the original 1841 Vienna Blond Lager, this refreshing 33.1 brew has a slight hint of fruit and pours to a smooth sunshine-gold hue.
2. India Pale Ale
Brewed since the late 1700s, IPA contains a substantial amount of hops, which acted as a natural preservative during the long journey to the English troops in India.
3. Wheat Beer
Also known as Weissbier or Weizenbier, this golden beer has been brewed in Bavaria since the 16th century. Using malted wheat and special strains of top-fermenting yeast, the 33.9 Wheat Beer is rich in flavour with hints of banana.
A rediscovery of the original Irish stout crafted using authentic brewing principles from Ireland, the full-bodied 33.3 Stout is flavourful and silky with a roasted aftertaste.
