The first weekend of March 2023 brings plenty of tipples: Urban Beer Festival and wine fair Gems of Tuscany.

The events promise copious craft beers and wines from some of the top Tuscan producers, as well as katsu sandos, wagyu fat-fried chips, and a six-course Italian dinner with wine pairing.

Urban Beer Festival

Happening first is Urban Beer Festival from 3-4 March. Organised by wagyu butchery and sando shop, Gyu San, and Good Luck Beerhouse, the event at Guoco Tower’s Urban Park will offer more than 100 craft beers and Japanese-inspired food.

Urban will showcase an international lineup of 20 craft beer makers including local brewers like Brewlander, Brewerkz, Crust, and Lion Brewery, who will all be pouring varieties of lagers, pale ales, session IPAs, stouts, and sours. Attendees will also be given a complimentary festival cream ale made in Singapore.

One-day entry tickets are priced at S$35 each. Food and additional beers can be purchased with tokens (sold during the event).
