Thirsty knows better beer, and we want everyone to know too. Since 2012, we’ve been working towards making craft beer in Singapore fun, fresh, and accessible to all. Why choose to drink normal when you can experience incredible for less? Read more at our About Us page!
Most craft beers are unpasteurised, which is why we always ship and store our beers refrigerated. Since alcohol is a natural preservative, craft beers technically do not have expiry dates and are safe to consume any time. However, craft beers have freshness dates which is an indicator of quality.
Craft breweries use a variety of freshness dating methods. Some print bottling dates, others print best-by dates, while many don't even print any date as it is not required to date alcoholic products in certain countries.
Bottling dates are self-explanatory, but best-by dates may cause some confusion. Best-by dates are not the same as expiry dates. Best-by dates indicates the consumption timeframe the brewer recommends for maximum quality. Best-by dates are indicator of quality, not safety, and items past its best-by dates are safe to consume.
Depending on beer style, the printed best-by date of craft beer is typically 3 - 6 months after bottling, which is far shorter than most mass-market beers which are typically dated 12 months after production. So, don't be alarmed when you see craft beers nearing or past its best-by dates, it only means it is approaching its 3 - 6 months of youth. Chances are, they will still taste fresher and more flavourful than any other longer-dated mass-market beers.
Beyond the best-by dates, the craft beer taste and aroma may start to change slightly, but this is highly dependant on how the beer is stored. But let's face it, we all agree that it's best to enjoy your beers sooner than later.
Your refrigerator is the best place to stash your beer. It protects beer from its natural enemies: heat and light. Do also keep your beer upright to allow for a clean, yeast-free pour and try to finish your opened beer instead of storing it as its carbonation will evaporate and you'll have a flat beer even if it's only the next day.
As for storing wine, the ideal conditions are: cool and dark, with constant temperates and still surroundings. The good news is that most wines are made ready to drink and do not require special cellaring, thus are a little more forgiving of storage conditions. Still, best to keep the wine laid horizontally and away from direct sunlight in cool temperatures with relative humidity levels.
'Hoppy' and 'malty' are terms to describe a beer flavour.
A 'hoppy' beer is one rich with the fragrance of hops, which are the green, leafy flowers of the Humulus Lupulus plant. Hops flavour beers with bitterness and citrusy, piney, floral, tropical notes. You'll find hoppy beers in IPAs and Imperial IPAs.
A 'malty' beer, on the other hand, has a flavour profile of roasty, biscuity, nutty, cereal, toasty, caramel, and sometimes even chocolately. You'll find malty beers in lots of Brown Ales, Porters and Stouts.

We currently work with independent delivery agents to dispatch all our deliveries.
To ensure a timely and accurate delivery, our 3rd party logistic partners has trained their independent delivery agents to follow a set of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) during delivery. These SOPs may include calling the recipient to clarify delivery instructions, asking for the recipient's signature to sign off the delivery, and/or taking a photo of the parcel being left at the recipient's doorstep. Please be rest assured that these are standard protocols and after the delivery is completed, these details will be securely kept in our 3rd party logistic partner's system, allowing no one else, including the delivery agent, to get access to.
If you miss a delivery, the delivery driver will call to inquire if he can leave your parcel on your doorstep (so please ensure that you left a local +65 phone number while making your order). Should the call not get through or if the package was rejected, you will soon receive a follow-up email or call from us to reschedule for a 2nd delivery attempt. However, do note that there will be a re-delivery charge of $10, so try to have someone (above the age of 18) to receive the parcel.
They can, but you got to let us know that you require this service in your order notes.
Sure. All delivery recipients must be aged 18 and above though. Please note that the recipient will need to sign off the package as an acknowledgement of order completion.
Please inform us by replying to your Shipping Confirmation email or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your Order Number, and will launch into an investigation immediately. While you wait for us to get back to you, do check if anyone else in the same address has helped to receive the parcel on your behalf.
We're terribly sorry for this incident! Please inform us by replying to your Shipping Confirmation email or emailing email@example.com with your Order Number, to get this sorted out and fixed.
