The bar where Singapore’s craft beer fans are in luck
Good Luck Beerhouse puts local brewers front and centre.
Singapore’s Haji Lane is thick with hipster retail and dining experiences, but no operator has yet ventured onto the street with a craft beer-dedicated bar until now. Here, Good Luck Beerhouse’s owners – some of whom are partners in Anthony Zhong’s Shin Gi Tai cocktail bar upstairs – are taking the tricks they’ve picked up from running concepts for beer enthusiasts to carve out a nostalgic tavern for tourists and street smart locals.
Under a neon-lit liang cha (cooling tea) scrawl on the tap wall, eight craft beers, ranging from golden ales to light stouts, pour for an average of SGD15 a pint, while a further 50 beers by the bottles are available to pair with light dim sum bites. But more importantly, Good Luck’s local references aren’t just an empty promise – co-owner Kevin Ngan says they’re committed to always serving made-in-Singapore ales and lagers on tap by brewers like Crossroads Brewing and Innocence Brewing.
“We think featuring locally brewed craft beers prominently at our bar is good for the craft beer ecosystem in Singapore,” explains Ngan. “We need more people to champion our local beer making scene.”
