BFA 2016_Floor Plan_29 Apr
1. Where
It is located at Marina Promenade, 1 Republic Boulevard, Singapore 038975. Ah ha, I knew it, you don’t know where, right? It is ok as I didn’t know it at start too. It is actually located in between F1 Pit Building and Singapore Flyer. The best way to get there is by Grab la as there is a promo code (BFA) which gives you $3 off your ride (to/ fro). If not you can take a train and alight at Promenade Station (nearest exit: Exit A). If you are driving, the parking is $10 so yes, go over and park at the carpark at Singapore Flyer if you really need to drive. If not, leave your car at home la, it is BEERFEST leh. Such a pity if you leave without having any beer right?

Basically it is an open air event BUT there is an air conditioned area at the Harry’s spirit and wine lounge. I know some of you must be feeling relieved. However, do note that there is an entry price of $8 which is only payable by beerfest chips.
