2018 Events

On Saturday 6th January 2018, EESS organized an Asia Pacific Brewery (APB) site visit. Around 20 of us gathered at the APB visitors center. Shortly after the vivid video about the origins of tiger beer in Singapore, we proceeded to the site visit to understand about the brewing and bottling process.

For the brewing process, the tour guide allowed us to smell the raw malt, roasted malt, hops essence and yeast. Wow, the roasted malt looks so black and smelt like a coffee bean! Next, we stepped into the brewing house, where the secrete of beer making was revealed in front of us: crushing and boiling the malt, separating malt liquid and spent grain, adding hops, adding yeast, filtering out yeast, and adding CO2. We then moved to the bottling process house which housed Asia’s first automated bottling system. Cans were lined up in rows, transferred, packed into carton boxes and shipped out on wooden pallets.

At the end of the tour, we were treated specially and nicely with a buffet lunch companied with fresh bear, followed by the EESS AGM. Thank you so much EESS for organizing this! Looking forward to upcoming site visits!
