Southeast Asia's craft beer scene has boomed faster than ever in the last couple of months. From small pubs to classy rooftop bars, exceptional drips inspired by Western brews have become immensely popular. But what makes it even more exciting are the added twists to the concoctions to fit not just the region's temperature but also the local temperament and drinking culture.

So if you're in the quest for the best craft beer experience across the region or just looking for a new chill hub in your home territory, we've got some exciting drip spots listed down for you. 

LeVel33 in Singapore

Looking for an unparalleled drinking experience when you're in the Little Red Dot? Bask in the view of Marina Bay Sands and the city skyline while indulging in freshly brewed beer at LeVel33, the highest urban brewery in the world. Combining a homey, traditional ambience with refined and contemporary European-inspired craft-brewery, this place is definitely a great escape hub in the midst of the bustling city. 

Taps Beer Bar in Malaysia

With the vision of changing the craft beer experience in Malaysia, this hub goes by the tagline "Craft beer's the name, better beer's the game." Since opening in 2011, they have rotated and served over 800 kinds of unique beers to ensure diversity and range in quality when it comes to their brews. If you're looking for a non-commercialised and specially curated experience when it comes to satisfying your craft beer craving, this spot is definitely your perfect find. 

Engkanto Brewery in the Philippines

Reintroducing Filipino folklore into the layman's lifestyle in the form of beer, this brewery's name has quite the pun once you learn that engkanto means 'spirits' in English — a word that can also be used to refer to liquor.  Promising high-quality craft beers that are affordable, accessible and will suit the Southeast Asian palate, take your pick at their selection of Lagers, Blondes, Pales and more named after some of the country's most popular mythical creatures. 

Stark Craft Beer Garden in Indonesia

Taking pride as a pioneer in Indonesia's craft beer scene, this is a spot that any craft beer enthusiast wouldn't want to miss. Take your pick from wheat or dark wheat beer or even the more exotic mango and lychee ales as you chill in the tavern-inspired beer garden. This drip spot also offers live music sessions on some nights with the busy streets of Kuta as a backdrop, giving a laidback and relaxing feel as you indulge in every sip of your crafted concoction. 

Wishbeer Bar in Thailand

One of the hottest spots in Thailand's thriving beer scene is Wishbeer, which has a wide range of foreign brews on the tap and local beers bottled to perfection. A great hub for those who want great comfort food complemented with crisp and indulgent craft beers as the star of the experience, the rustic appeal of the bar's ambience completes the vibe reminiscent of those in movies.
