TSA, the acronym of ‘Taste So Awesome’. Purveyor of the best Craft Beers, Wines, artisanal Ciders and Sodas.
Founded in 2008 by friends who simply love and enjoy delicate wines for a long time.
From a humble beginning as a new distributor specializing in Cult Wines, we chanced upon the world of Craft Beers and ever since then, we have never looked back!
It was not an easy journey being one of the pioneer distributors to introduce Craft Beers in Singapore as there are established local beer brands which locals have already gotten used to for decades. However, our passion of introducing quality Craft Beers, is what keeps us going!
Today TSA has become a veteran of sorts and we are proud to be among the few special companies in Singapore who understand and offer the best of Craft Beers. As we strongly believe – We don’t introduce what we don’t enjoy.
We will continue improving and maintaining our level or standard when it comes to sourcing and distributing cult wines as well as craft beers to all you alcohol lovers out there!

FUCKING HELL | GERMANY
In the year 1070 a man by the name of Adalpert von Vucckingen settled in what is now Upper Austria. Others flocked around him, and this little congregation was eventually named Fucking – the name being derived from its founder Adalpert von Vuckingen (Austrian records actually use “flock” as an official classification). And the people of Fucking do enjoy their lager beer. So, what could be more appropriate than dedicating a lager beer to Fucking?
The word “Hell” describes the type of beer. There are many varieties of German and Austrian beers and two common words to describe them are “Hell”, which is the word for “light”. This would stand for light in colour (pale ale or lager) and “Dunkel” which is the word for “dark”, thus dark beer.
Fucking Hell beer adheres to the proud and trusted brewing traditions and customs used throughout Germany and Austria.
ST BERNARDUS | BELGIUM
Shortly after the Second World War, the Trappist Monastery St. Sixtus in Westvleteren was looking for somebody to commercialize their beer because they did not want to do that themselves anymore. They gave a license to the neighbouring cheese factory, and Brewery St. Bernard was founded. The brew master from Westvleteren, Mathieu Szafranski (from Polish origin) became a partner in the brewery and brought along the recipes, the know-how and most importantly, the St. Sixtus yeast strain.
DUPONT BREWERY | BELGIUM
The Brasserie Dupont is a former farm dating back to 1759. In 1844, it became the Rimaux-Derrider farm-brewery, specializing in the production of honey and “Saison” (season) beers, so called because the farm-breweries produced this type of beer in winter for consumption on the fields in summer.
In 1920, agronomist, Louis Dupont, was planning to buy a farm in Canada. To dissuade him from doing so, his father Alfred Dupont bought him this farm-brewery. Louis Dupont gave us a new take on the basic “Saison” recipe, known today by the name Saison Dupont.
Our philosophy is to make optimal use of technology while maintaining the traditional production processes linked to the history of our brewery.

LA CHOUETTE | FRANCE
“La Chouette” which means “The Owl” in French refers to the surprising bond between the night bird and French cider.
