Head Brewer, Thirty Six Brewlab & Smokehouse
The ethos of the Brewlab can be distilled into three pillars, 'Be Creative, Be Curious and Collaborate' and Greg exudes all these qualities.
His passion for craft beer and experimenting with new ingredients and methods is tangible in the wide range of excellent beers on offer and the emergence of superb new flavours and styles. Born in Melbourne, Greg has always loved craft beer and is fascinated by the processes involved. With a background in Tech Architecture Greg came to Singapore to follow his passion to marry his mastery of technology and methodology with the science and creativity of brewing.
“I am super enthused about Craft Beer, and I want people to share my curiosity and take away a bit of the joy that it gives me. There’s nothing better than putting everything into a new beer. For each recipe I do loads of research into the different methods, ingredients and processes. Thirty Six gives us the opportunity to build on the community of curious brewing here in Singapore. People are realising it’s not just about lagers and ales, there's so much more to beer and there’s a whole creative process involved."
Neo Say Wee
Head Brewer, Lion Brewery Co
Champion brewer, Neo Say Wee joined Lion Brewery Co in 2018, with 17 years of brewing experience, deep rooted in both home-brewing and commercial brewing in Singapore. Neo has won a number of awards in various regional and international beer competitions and we think he knows absolutely everything there is to know about premium beer and the brewing process!
Neo is responsible for bringing cask conditioned Ale to Thirty Six - commonly known as Real Ale - the beer undergoes a natural carbonation in the cask, so, along with the pouring process from the 'Beer Engine' hand pump, the beer has a creamier, fuller mouthfeel. We also have Neo to thank for the use of Kveik yeast that we in the Brewlab- this dynamic Norwegian yeast that has been used in all the Lion Brewery Co seasonal beers, is creating superb beers and styles.

XR is a master in the kitchen. He has an incredible ability to turn a dish into a showstopper with his tenacity and attention to detail. His experience in cooking started from a young age when his mother would smuggle him into work at her food stall, where he helped her source ingredients and prepare different chinese dishes.
XR entered professional cooking when he was 19 and was immediately drawn to the momentum, the action and the heat of working in a kitchen and driven by the satisfaction of perfecting a difficult dish.
His experience in professional cooking has seen him set up and manage a number of large restaurants across Singapore and he even took Jamie Oliver out for Chicken Rice!
