In January 2020, five friends in the Singapore craft beer industry launched Off Day Beer Company, making beers for those who appreciate a good hoppy quaff. The partnership includes Singaporean brewers Daryl Yeap and Casey Choo, together with beertreupreneurs Kevin Ngan, Kasster Soh and Jasmine Wong.
On the brand’s website, the Singaporean term ‘Off Day’ is said to mean a day off from work (colloquial usage), or a bad day with less success or happiness (informal, English). As such, the 4 core beers brewed at Off Day (Off Day Beer, Pale, Haze, and Double) are beers for all occasions.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Singapore is currently going through a circuit breaker period that has made citizens home-bound and halted businesses. Off Day decided to brew two seasonal beers that bring island vacation in a bottle to drinkers during the lockdown and therefore themed the brews around topical fruits.
Seasonal Releases #stayhomebeer
Melon (Watermelon Mint Sour, 4% ABV) is a kettle soured beer that combines refreshing tartness with 2 types of watermelons - the “sha gua” (sandy melon which is sweeter) and “shui gua” (juicier with more melon flavour), plus mint for a cooling effect. Motueka hops further add and enhance the tropical and citrus notes, creating a fresh and breezy beer.
Sunglow (Tropical IPA, 6%ABV) is an East Coast style IPA with very apparent pineapple and citrus (grapefuity) notes on the nose and low bitterness. The emphasis is on the zesty aromas and flavours derived from the citra and centennial hops which were added after the boil, and further dry-hopping in the fermenter, to retain the aromatics and fruity flavours rather than the bitterness from the hops.
The seasonal releases are available to order now from their website as well as partner bars and retailers.
Off Day Care Pack and #StayHome Self Care Pack come with the Melon and Sunglow beers, postcards, pint glass and posters. Delivery will commence from 21st May 2020 onwards. Visit offdaybeer.com to order. Only available in Singapore.
