Song Fa x The 1925 Brewing Co. #songfa50
30 Dec, 2019
Song Fa Bak Kut Teh has collaborated with Singapore’s local craft beer brewery The 1925 Brewing Co. to launch our very first tea beer, 苑之酿 King’s Garden Ale!
This is our second collaboration with local brands in our #supportlocal campaign. (Find out more about our first collaboration with wheniwasfour here)
Drinks bar uncle is now an expert at the beer tap
King’s Garden Ale (苑之酿) is a pale ale, crafted from the tea leaves of Song Fa’s own blend of tea, the King’s Garden Tea. This is the first tea beer in the world designed specially to complement Bak Kut Teh!
At 4.8% alcohol content, you can still taste the subtle dryness of oolong tea and sweetness of green tea, as well as the fragrance of chrysanthemum flowers.
King’s Garden Ale and Song Fa’s signatures – a match made in heaven
Besides Bak Kut Teh, King’s Garden Ale tea beer also pairs well with the rest of Song Fa’s menu, such as the braised pig trotters and homemade Ngoh Hiang. A must-order is the deep-fried lotus root chips, which our chef created just to match the drink.
The outlet as a cosy 'drinking area', designed after olden Singapore drinking spots

Tea and Beer and Bak Kut Teh? What was your inspiration?
We are always innovating to bring new dishes and creations to you. In our efforts to cultivate the tea-drinking culture to more Bak Kut Teh lovers, we decided to design and craft a tea beer which complements our local dish, while maintaining the flavours of Kungfu tea.
What’s the best dish to pair it with?
Our hot peppery bak kut teh, definitely! Or, get your recommendations from our friends here:
