Takeaways are now an option

Anyone who takes his or her craft beer seriously would have spent a lot of time at the one-year-old Mikkeller bar, over at Singapore's sexy photography gallery DECK. Opened by the famous "gypsy-brewer" Mikkel Borg Bjergso, the Copehagen-based brewery has taken the beer world by storm over the last decade, and has opened up in cities like San Francisco, Bangkok, Seoul and Tokyo. Thanks to the peeps behind The Drinking Partners and Druggists, Mikkeller Bar Singapore became a reality. One year on, they've made a few changes in their headquarters in Singapore and launched a brand new bottle shop.

Housed in two 40-foot containers, Mikkeller boasts 20 taps that pour a mix of Mikkeller's standards, its experimental creations and beers from the many breweries they collaborate with. They also used to bring in a couple of bottled beers, but they came as and when. But now, they have a permanent fixture (it’s basically just a shelf near the entrance) displaying bottles of some of your favorite brews that you can bring home, including the eye-curling 1000 IBU ($16); the darker, award-winning Beer Geek Breakfast ($13), an imperial oatmeal stout that has seen many variations over the years; the lighter Peter, Pale and Mary ($11), a slightly hazier American ale; and many more.

Also new to the family is their food stand just outside the bar. At the moment, they’re only serving tacos with a choice of spicy pulled pork, smoked duck, or beef ($6.50 for one, $11 for two).
