1. Breathtaking views of the skyline
The name says it all.

2. Freshly brewed beer
As you step into the restaurant, the massive copper brewing kettles and fermentation tanks are surely the next to catch your eyes. Yes, all of LeVeL33’s craft beers are brewed in-house to ensure maximum freshness. You’ll be glad to know that the beer is unfiltered and unpasteurized, which means it is totally organic, so you can indulge in your drinking obsession guilt-free!
Should you have difficulty picking from its extensive selection of delectable beers, try out the beer paddle first, which consists of five 100 ml glasses of their staple beers:
- the popular and light blond lager
- the German-style wheat beer (50% wheat)

- the flavorful Irish stout
- the aromatic House Porter
After sampling all of them, you can order a larger glass of the one that you particularly like, so you don’t have to worry about finishing up a beer that you don’t enjoy.
Aside from these classic beers, the brew-master also produces a range of one-off seasonal beers four times a year, each lingering on the menu for only two months. So make sure you keep a lookout for these exclusive creations when you visit this popular brewery.
