Katong beer is a long-standing Singaporean tradition that’s been around for over 50 years. It is considered by many to be a culinary rite of passage, and their signature brews are made with ingredients imported from Belgium, Germany, and England. They have a wide range of beers available, each designed to complement the local flavors found in Singapore. This blog post will cover the best Katong beers for each season.
Kaffir Lime Sour
Kaffir Lime Sour is a refreshing beer that perfectly embodies the tropical climate of Singapore. The Kaffir lime leaf imparts a tart citrus flavor and aroma to this light, refreshing brew. This seasonal favorite is perfect for when you crave refreshment in the hot weather, or when you’re craving something light and fruity with a crisp finish.
Belgian Pale Ale
Belgian Pale Ale is a refreshing beer that has citrus and malt flavors. The yeast produces fruity aromas, which are then complemented by the Belgian hops. This makes this beer perfect for summertime imbibing. Its strong and malty flavor goes well with hearty fares, like stews and soups. These beers are often relatively low in alcohol, so they can be enjoyed more than once throughout the season.
Belgian Tripel is a beer that is made with a special yeast, malt, and hops. The use of these ingredients produces a fruity flavor and light body. This beer is perfect for any time of year, but especially during the summertime when it can be sipped at any time of the day.
Belgian Stout is a medium-bodied beer that makes for a refreshing beverage on a hot day. The smoky flavor combined with hints of sweet malt creates a flavorful and smooth finish. Though this beer has been around for many years, it’s still as popular as ever. It’s easy to see why when you try their Belgian Stout and realize the flavors are well balanced and satisfying.
