NEWBrew – a unique craft beer made using NEWater, Singapore’s own brand of ultra-high-grade recycled water.
For a second time, national water agency PUB has collaborated with Brewerkz, Singapore’s longest-running local craft brewery, to serve NEWBrew at Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) 2022 from 17 to 21 April.
A limited quantity will also be available for public sale.
Brewerkz has upped the ante with the 2022 version: a Tropical Blonde Ale, including premium German barley malts, aromatic citra and calypso hops, as well as kveik, a highly-sought after strain of farm-house yeast from Norway. The result – a highly quaffable beer suitable for Singapore’s tropical climate, with a smooth, toasted honey-like aftertaste.
NEWater makes up about 95 per cent of the beer.
You will get a chance to try the limited-edition NEWBrew, as it will be made available for sale from 12 April to end July at supermarket chains NTUC FairPrice and Cold Storage, as well as online platforms and Brewerkz’s restaurants and e-store. The beer will be sold in packs of three cans, priced at $4.50 per can.
Each of the three NEWBrew cans sports a different design that features vibrant artwork showcasing the Marina Barrage, MacRitchie Reservoir and the Singapore River – three iconic local water landmarks that contribute to Singapore’s water sustainability efforts and are also well-loved spots for leisure and to enjoy nature.
