Craft beer has taken the world by storm and China is no exception but for me this tour is so much more than beer tasting. As we navigate the winding streets full of ancient architecture we soon discover the layers of different subcultures in the city, which visitors don’t usually consider.
The long history of Beijing’s people spreads out to its social venues and it’s utterly fascinating to observe how local residents of the hutong mingle with gentrification. How the hip, young Chinese socialise with expats and how the creative industries come together.
Whether you’re a craft beer enthusiast or don’t know your hops from your malt, as we move deeper through the second ring road of Beijing, the fun really starts. Our local guides know all the best spots from cosy pubs with tranquil courtyards and trendy tap houses located inside disused workshops. You’ll find beers spiced with Sichuan peppercorns, ales infused with oolong tea and a fantastic BBQ for when you start to get peckish. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of cocktails too if you don’t like beer.
This is such a surprising and exciting evening of discovery and believe me, this is the best night out you can experience in Beijing for this price!
