Hey - I don't like reviving old posts normally, but this looks like one that could do with an update. I've checked out Pacific Beverages, but the best they can do for a case of stella these days is $80. I also spotted mabukmonkey online, who seem to deliver beers (which is nice) but they aren't that cheap.

The best deal I've found so far is cases of Tiger in Fairprice for $48 for 24 323ml cans.

Has anyone else got more recent cheap beer places that I can look up in Singapore?

I bought a 500ml of a blue can at 7-11 / shell station on upper bukit timah across from hindhede yesterday. I'm just fresh here in singapore and can't remember the brand... :oops:

but it was only S$2.50. :o

Seemed like the best deal I've seen in the 4 or 5 days being here. Wish I would have bought more. I've looked all over where I'm staying near the Marina and haven't found that brand...

I think it started with a "b".

Maybe head back up there this weekend and figure it out. Sorry I don't have more info, but wanted to share.

There is a shop in Changi Village that does Carlsberg/Heineken for $51 for 24 cans.

It was under $50 a couple of months ago .....

7-11 frequently have deals on Breda beer where 300 ml cans go for as little as $2 a can. Perfectly drinkable beer too.

A little off topic I suppose, but here in the states I have brewed my own and they usually turn out pretty well once I get the recipe down. A little google search and I found a few places that sell it in sg. I will certainly buy the bottles, but I think brewing your own is a good alternative with the crazy prices.

Anyone given this a shot there?

In the states it is essentially $30USD for quite a few gallons.

Friend of my got into it here several years ago. Not too bad and can do it easily with the kits you buy here. They are approved by the gahmen as well.

Few years ago you needed a licence to brew at home ($S100), later $S10 and finally no licence was necessary. I brew myself for 2-3 years using some kits or own recipes based on liquid malt extracts from the web pages quoted above. It is worth to try (money- and outcome-wise) but it is rather tedious.
1. in this climate you need a chiller / coolbox
2. it is a lottery, you never know whether you manage to have anything clean enough to prevent acetic acid fermentation.

If that happens, consider selling it to ksl!
