80+ Delivery & Takeaway Channels for Craft Beer During the Circuit Breaker and Heightened Alert in Singapore
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a tough time for craft beer purveyors in Singapore. We went from a shutdown of bar licensees on 27 March 2020 to a ban on dining-in on 7 April 2020, which returned on 16 May and 22 July 2021 with Phase 2 (Heightened Alert). However, there are still ways to obtain craft beer during the “circuit breaker” (v 2.0 beta, if you like) and support your favourite establishments–at least the ones that are still in operation.
I’ll keep the details here basic and relevant to the current situation. If you want more details like where they are located, the ambience, etc, you should check out the other guide to craft beer in Singapore I made during normal times. If you need more choices for wine and spirits, see the guide on Spirited Singapore.
To make things easy, you can find our favourite brewery or outlet that is offering takeout or delivery in the table below and click on the name to find out more details. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, it may be temporarily closed or not offering beer for the time being.
Unlike bubble tea, you don’t need to order food with your craft beer during the circuit breaker (for now). The option exists, though, if you need an excuse to do so. Order your next meal from one of these places to support them during these trying times.

More ways to get craft beer
There may be some people who, for some reason, find that none of the above suit them. In that case, take your identity card, visit Cold Storage/Jason’s/FairPrice and get in line, or find a delivery slot on Lazada (all the best!).
Temporarily closed (or not serving craft beer during the circuit breaker)
It’s hard for everyone to sell craft beer during the circuit breaker in Singapore with fewer workers moving around and next to no tourists now. Naturally, some places have closed, including the popular ones. Here’s hoping they will be back.
- Alchemist Beer Lab (order from Little Island instead)
- The World is Flat (no beer available–but there’s bubble tea)
- Welcome Ren Min (Hello Ren Min is open for limited hours listed above)
