Celebrate Sentosa with Iconic New Beers from Brewerkz

Brewerkz has collaborated with the Sentosa Development Corporation to launch the Islander Brew, a series of four beers named after the island’s landmarks. Each of their flavours is inspired by an edible plant found in Sentosa – Fort Siloso (chocolate-vanilla Porter), Tanjong Rimau (yuzu nutmeg Witbier), Bukit Manis (jasmine Kolsch), and Siloso Beach (lime sea salt Gose). These beers are also carbon-neutral as part of SDC’s decarbonisation plan for Sentosa and Brewerkz’s aspirations to create more sustainable products. Available now at select F&B and retail outlets in Sentosa and will be available more widely online and at supermarkets from 7 December.
