Educational Tour - Tiger Beer Brewery

Many of us like beer, but how many of us have a chance to visit a real functional brewery right in Singapore. Well do you know Tiger Beer is actually manufactured and bottled in Singapore?
Great Asian Brands: Tiger Beer
Tiger Beer is the result of collaboration between F&N and Heineken and as part of the brewery tour; you will have a more in-depth understanding of how our most favourite brand - Tiger Beer come into being.

As part of the tour, you guys will be guided through Tiger Beer museum which showcase the transformation of Tiger Beer through the decades.

The tour is followed by two short movie clips that explain how Tiger Beer came about and basically how Tiger Beer are made.

Next, we will proceed to the production facilities itself to see the fermentation silos, settling and packaging process. Lastly, enjoy free flow of cool beer in the Tavern itself.

If you are interested, you can also plan to have company dinner there with Buffet and free flow of beers! You are almost guarantee to have a wild time.

As photo taking in the production facilities is not allowed, I have only taken photo in the museum and tavern itself.

Tiger Beer Brewery is categorised under educational and factory categories.

Places I have been -Kampong in Buangkok

I first heard about this place from Neil Humphrey - Author of book such as Notes from an even smaller island - and have finally decided to pay it a visit a few days ago.

The Kampong itself is pristine in a sense that it retains it most original flavour and culture. What hit you are the transformation of the area from a HDB sub-urban environment to a really lay back Kampong Village that you swear you will never find it in mainland Singapore.

The walk itself was quite great as it bypass small river streams, lovely archways, beautiful scrubs and bushes. The residents there in general are bemused with the folks walking through their Kampong. Be advise thou, from my quick glance, some of those residents own land and big cars that are parked at their doorways! Base on wiki search, these may be the original landlords that rent out the houses situated in the Kampong to people since the 1960s!
