–> Beersmith Gastropub

Beer Smith Brewery- Bejing Craft Beer

This is a brewery inside Hotel Jen Beijing. Has 12 beers on tap and you can see their copper tanks in the restaurant.

It has big screens and seems to be a ex-pat place for after work drinks. It has live bands and friendly staff. I can’t find out too much else about it. But it seems to have its admirers.

I don’t have a website for them but only some information in Chinese here.

–> Panda Brew

Panda Brew- Chiese Craft Brewery

There isn’t a wide variety of their beers for sale at their brewpub. However, you can also try their whiskey too so there’s that.

If you have spent anytime in China you’ve probably seen their beer in a supermarket or two with their distinctive Panda branding.

Maybe not the best known Chinese craft brewery but they are successful and one of the larger craft breweries.

They have no official website that I can find but they link where you can buy their beer online. Which you can do so by clicking here.

Panda Brew (Brewpub – Production Brewery Elsewhere)

Address: Dongsi N St, Dongzhimen, Dongcheng, Beijing, China

The brewery’s name comes from the song “Slow Boat to China” written by Frank Loesser in the late 1940’s. Slow Boat is one of the oldest craft breweries in China founded in 2011.

Two friends who had a love for craft beer decided to turn their appreciation into a business to bring North American Brewing styles to China, whilst still creating uniquely Chinese Beers.
