About The 1925 Microbrewery & Restaurant

Singapore’s microbreweries are going from strength to strength, and leading the charge is The 1925, whose premises down Jalan Besar offer the opportunity to sample freshly-tapped craft beers brewed on site plus great dining in their upstairs restaurant. Located in a classic vintage Singapore shopfront, it’s always a pleasure to get together with friends for a good drinking session.

Further Information

Singapore microbrewery’s The 1925’s range of craft beers is enormous, representing classic styles and contemporary microbrews twists on the norm. The honey-laced Manuka Stout offers a silken, earthy palate with Fuggle hops and a dash of espresso, while the classic Yellow Van is liquid gold, a great session beer. Besides their own inventions, The 1925’s beer vault plays host to a huge number of Singaporean and international craft beers, hand-selected by The 1925’s brewmasters for their ability to stand out from the crowd in terms of flavour and forward-thinking brew practices. You can enjoy them all on the ground floor of The 1925’s premises down Jalan Basar.

The 1925’s restaurant is has the same exacting standards, tempered only by a great sense of atmosphere – it’s casual dining accompanied by fine wine, cocktails, and of course good microbrewed beers, that doesn’t skimp on quality. Famous in Singapore for its tender inch-think tenderloin steaks, eating at The 1925 is addictive. The 1925’s kitchen down Jalan Besar is busy all day pumping out all manner of fries, burgers, and mains. Every tried truffle, seaweed or wasabi fries? The 1925 has them, and they’re perfect with a cold pint of beer. Been longing for one of The 1925’s signature burgers but can’t decide? Then go for their mini burger sliders, representing a smaller-scale selection from the burger menu. Brunch and lunch gets a little more serious at The 1925, but there’s always good cheer to be had at this great Singapore microbrewery and restaurant.

This is my repeated visit. As usual, the food was good, waiter/waitress were friendly. Variety of beers could be abit more but other than that it is a perfect place to chill out

They served great food at great prices in a really nice ambient. Really quiet during lunch time and good for small groups to chat over lunch.

Relaxing, nice and cozy ambience to hang and chill with your friends and loved ones.. Friendly staff with good service. If you enjoy beer, support local breweries like the1925!

Very cosy ambience. Food was also reasonably priced. The staff were attentive too. Food was served fast (maybe because it wasn't very crowded) but overall it was a good experience.

Although it was a Saturday night on a long weekend, the place wasn't too crowded. The service was prompt and friendly. We ordered the Pork Belly, Potato Skins, the Truffle Fries, and the Ginger Beer. The sauce for the Pork Belly was full of flavour. The pork itself was tender but I felt that it would have been great if the skin was crispier. I just kept thinking that pork crackling would have been great. The potato skins were delicious. The truffle fries were really fries with truffle mayo. What I liked though, was that they sprinkled paprika and it was something I've never really had with truffle fries. It complimented the flavours of the condiment. The Ginger Beer was good in balancing the flavours of the sauce from the pork belly dish. It would go well with dishes that are hearty and full of flavour. I would probably come back again to try the brunch menu.

the restaurant is located at an interesting street of shophouses. ambience, decoration of the restaurant was really nice. we were in fact impressed with how vintage and rustic they managed to make the place look, I love the lightings of the place too. I have to say that service was prompt, attentive, nice, professional and excellent even when we were seated upstairs. I think plus point is how restaurant was quite big with 2 levels, so the upstairs was nice and quiet on a weekday evening with not too many tables occupied. I like the creativity of the food selection, they were very different from the usual restaurants. however I personally preferred the appetiser and dessert. the main dishes were quite blend in my opinion. the beer was so so too, perhaps the one we tried was not special and unique enough. pricing of the food was on a high side for the quality of the main dishes.

I tried 4 out of the 5 beers on tap. Quite decent beers and I liked the IPA best. Noted that the half pints cost $7++ each and the full pint $15++. So order two half pints of the same beer will cost less than a full pint. Liked the Lychee martinis. Had the beef, fried chicken skin, fish and chips, Hawaiian pizza, fries platter (truffle, curry and seaweed flavours). Liked the beef and the pizza. The rest are average. Staff was attentive initially when the restaurant was quiet.. but they cannot seem to cope when it filled up. The evening was marred by a very noisy group of diners. Perhaps the restaurant should improve the acoustics .. I have seen some creative restaurants use the cheap alternative of using egg trays on the ceiling. Would have stayed longer and try more drinks if not for the unbearable noise.

The breads were very nicely toasted, I especially enjoyed the butter in the poached egg dish. Sausages were very filling and juicy, and the scrambled egg in the beef stew dish was very enjoyable, soft and dense. However, I felt that the seaweed fries didn't have a very strong seaweed flavor. The beef chunks were also a little bit hard to chew, but all around the taste was very good. The fried poached egg had a strange pungent taste that only I picked up. The roasted vegetables were a bit bitter. The beehive was excellent, but the kaya was a little bit bitter. I think there may have been too much alcohol in the dip.

Cozy place with a casual atmosphere. Foods were very nice, especially the great selection of appetizers. As for the beer selection, the website is very deceptive (almost a scam) in that 90% of the beers shown on the webpage are not available.....even in bottles. They have around 6 craft beers on draft and nothing else. The claim to brew their own beers, but none were ready for consumption. I would go back again, but definitely call first to confirm what beers are being served. The website definitely needs to be updated or preferably, the stock the beers advertised in bottles in addition to what they serve on draft.

Food consistently yummy -- it's my second visit. Must order dishes I have tried: pork belly, oysters, pizza, pulled pork burger. Smells of pancakes would waft once in a while when the bar prepared the Beehive dessert -- more yum! A bit disappointed they ran out of the beers i liked but the serving crew helpfully provided other just as good choices. The laid back, chill and chat vibe -- whether indoors or outdoors -- makes for a good close friends happy hour happier.

We get to know this place through a click network show called foodporn hosted by Irene Ang. They recommended two new brunch menu which looks extremely appetizing and creative so we are here to try it out! :) We ordered deep fried poach egg with portobello, ranch breakfast and mixed platter of chicken skins and potato skins. We love everything especially the deep fried chicken skin! Very crispy and tasty! :D

I was there on the 6th August, there was staff - excuse me as i Dont know her name, it was a thin girl taking care of the upper seating area, she was very polite and took care of our table well. Tho it was closing much visible your staff are not tored out and still serve with a smile on their faces. Good job!

Premises is more vibrant ever since ST published an article on them. Place is very reasonably priced and with outstanding sincerity to serve by their jovial crew. The beers feel a little watered down but that itself makes for a different taste profile. Would only recommend their in house brews like Small Monster (Cloudy Pale Ale that looks more like a Wheat Beer, yet tastes like a lighter version of IPA) Their 6.22 Dark Ale is in between a Dunkel and Stout found at Past 2 Present. After visiting 1925, I'll never visit Druggist again.

A quaint yet modern, cosy place for great food and beer. It was a quiet fri evening and we were the only table at level 2 seating when we reached there. We ordered the fries sampler, pizza, chicken skewers & roast pork. Everything was excellent except the roast pork which we find it to be a tad hard. Had the small monster beer which has a nice malt flavour and bitter aftertaste. Overall a nice experience.

The ambience and the warm hospitality of the staff makes us feel at home. Just as well, the sauce they can customise according to my chill-out mate's preference which I personally find they are willing to go the extra effort to ensure we are being taken care of. Thank you, 1925 microbrewery & restaurant. We will be back again for a good chill-out.

Service was good but the environment and atmosphere not as what we expected. The place looks rundown and old, food was so so. Rather bland and lack of seasonings. The potato skins were more like baked potato. Kinda disappointed. The beef patty of the burger is quite tasteless, fries was bland and not crispy at all. The prawn pesto pasta was ok. Perhaps the nicest from what we have ordered. Don't think we will go back to them. For the location, guess I would rather go back to Creatures, their food was fabulous!

The waitstaff was very polite and helpful in assisting us with the menu and making sure that we did not order too much food. The food itself came rather promptly and met our expectations. The lunch specials that are offered are very worth it as well - and they have a 2 dollar top up for free flow coke/sprite/ice lemon tea.

Great place for great food & drinks. The staff were friendly & attentive, waiting time to place & get our order was short too. Will definitely go back! Tried the smoked duck pizza, lamb cutlet & grilled chicken skewer (V generous serving portion !). We ordered 3 bottles of the red wine & a couple of pints of beer.

The food was good - I especially liked the catch of the day (which was red snapper). The waitress who served us was friendly and attentive. There was a leaking aircon that was dripping on me but the waitress was quick to offer suggestions (e.g. Changing table or switching the location I say). She came back later to check on me again regarding that, which was nice :)

The ambience was right and the service was pretty good. The food is pretty good too, however maybe I am too used to thick malty beers, I tried 4 out of the 5 beers available, but none really appealed to me as they were too thin and feels diluted. Perhaps that's the characteristic of the beer made by 1925 and it just didn't suit my taste buds

decor is cool and edgy but the ambience can be improved w better background music. we ordered a chicken skewer and ribeye with foie gras. chicken was tender and marinated well but could be better with a longer grilling time. my medium-well ribeye was average but foie gras was too raw for my liking. however, my boyfriend's medium-rare steak was too undercooked on the edge. guess the heat of the stove wasn't evenly spreaded. quite a decent range on the drinks menu.

great atmosphere, awesome starters (try the mixed skin sampler), average mains and shiok dessert (the 1925 tiramisu packed a very heavy dose of alcohol). would recommend not going on a weekend/fri night as the top floor can get quite echo-y and it could be rather noisy and hard to have conversation, but if that is your jam, go for it.

We were greeted with a very solemn server who doesn't seem to like to smile. She brought us to our table (even with reservation, we had the bar seats) and we requested to move upstairs were there were proper dining tables. A male server took over and service went up from there. We ordered quite a bit of food - skewers (chicken thigh and portobello mushrooms), potato skins, whole spring chicken and a beef burger. Everything fell short of expectation. The chicken was practically tasteless. :( What a pity. Will not return in future.

The staff is friendly and helpful but the only disappointment is they have communication problem internally. I had requested to have the Birthday cake - Tiramisu and they had not reserved for us. At first quite kind reserve the beer ice cream and again sell it to others. Quite disappointed over this issues.

Food is quite nice, but it's not something you will want to go crave for it again in a short time... Too rich and flavorful I guess. I was kinda disappointed that they ran out of stout and choices of beers were limited. I will probably try again sometime later to try the stout selection. Overall, staff service was alright. Keep it going!

The beers are fresh and crisp. Tyrwhitt's Wings and Pork Belly were da' bomb. I think the Tiramisu has a nice amount of coffee liquor but my friend is a light drinker.... I'll return for the 3 items and beers fo'sure!

great ambiance, nice selection of brewery, rustic interior. But will be perfect if you work on the 2nd floor hall acoustic as it will be very echo-ed during peak period and you will find it pretty hard to have a good chat. Maybe to opened up the window or hang more textile might helps to absorb some sound echo.

A very nice restaurant. Hung out with a group of friends. Cozy atmosphere, friendly staff and yummy food. I'm a vegetarian and got a crispy egg pasta (with no meat and seafood). Also got a truffle fries. It'll be great if there're more vegetarian options available though.

food was generally alright, but disappointed that 4 out of 7 beers were not on the menu despite it being a Friday evening. service was lousy as well - the air-con was leaking and they transferred us to another table with the same problem before giving us seats upstairs. the good thing, that manuka stout tasted good.

The food was just alright. Our table ordered 3 portions of the sliced beef medium but the doneness was inconsistent with all three servings. The beer menu had missing information and we had to keep asking the servers. At one point, they were confused about the beer they were about to serve us as the color was similar and had to smell it. The service was pretty good though and the servers were attentive and friendly

The set lunch promo food are really good. However, as we're seated upstairs, we encountered some difficulty having our drinks refilled and also the lack of service. This may not be the case for dinner? Overall, the service can be improved during lunch hours. :)

Food was not bad, we had the king prawn pasta, the curry fries and chicken skewers. The portions were generous. The beers were good! Service was spotty though. We couldn't find anyone on the 2nd floor when we wanted to ask for the bill, and had to wait a bit. But overall, not bad, great atmosphere.

Pleasant ambience, attentive service staff. The Beef Paddle was excellent! Beautifully charred on the outside, done to perfection on the inside. Highly recommended! My only wish is that they had a wider selection of their own brews; only Yellow Van was available.

Nice atmosphere, quite rugged. Good place for a drink, food is ok... Teriyaki chicken was too big for its bun, therefore very hard to eat, and skin was left on the chicken! Too chewy for me, sorry. Will come for drinks, but food here must be seen as a plan B, really.
