Here in Beijing, we love a good beer. So what could be better than not one, but two, beer festivals arriving in the capital over the next few weeks?
Returning for its second year next weekend, Jing A’s 8x8 Brewing Project
pairs eight knockout Nordic breweries with eight exemplary breweries from China to produce some special brews, alongside companion pints from all the breweries involved in one satisfyingly hoppy haze. Each session of the festival (priced at 258RMB) will last for three hours and include free-flow beer.
For those of you looking for brews a bit closer to home, the CBAC (Craft brewer’s Association of China) Craft Beer Festival
is set to take place at TRB Copper
from November 16 to 18 this year. A celebration of some of China’s best indie craft brewers, 32 confirmed breweries (and counting) from across the Mainland will be taking part, including local brewmasters Great Leap, Jing A and Slow Boat. Tickets go on sale today via 247tickets and are priced at 150RMB per single session, which gets you free-flow drinks, canapés provided by TRB and a limited-edition glass.
