Walk into any bar in Singapore and take a look at their Happy Hour promotions. Chances are, the ‘Happy Hour’ poster features a gazillion different drink deals. While it is the watering hole’s duty to put up every promo they have out there, our question is: How many people actually can remember them all? Let’s be honest… Probably just a couple of regulars.
We are bombarded with endless happy hour promotions on a daily basis; these offers are splashed all over flyers, posters, social media and every other thinkable advertising material. Unfortunately, it has become overwhelming for consumers to digest such information (despite the fact that these deals may actually be irresistible).
Everyone has a different go-to drink. For the Chug team, it’s a pint of ice-cold beer that we look most forward to after work. So we have sussed out the various beer promos available and compiled a Guide to Singapore’s Best Happy Hour Promos (Beer edition) for fellow beer guzzlers. You are welcome. Happy chugging!
