I stumbled across this small brewpub while strolling around in the Hutongs. I found it very appealing - a place that instantly gave me an urge to buy a beer and sit down. The man at the counter guided me through the many different beers to choose from (about 20 I think) and I ended up picking the Honey Ma Gold which I didnít regret. I am definitely coming back, next time I find myself in this area of Beijing.

Nice american style brewpub in Beijing. Nice selection of draft beers (18 I think). We got thrown out at closing though other than that nice service and good brews!

An amazing place in the heart of the hutongs, a collection of higgledy-piggledy back streets and alleyways. I found my way there on a motor scooter rickshaw whose driver negotiated the lanes expertly but at a hair-raising pace. Itís not easy to find and the only indication that the bar is there at all is a hand written sign on a piece of corrugated cardboard pinned to the wall outside. Inside the wall thereís a lovely brick cobbled courtyard with plastic wicker tables and chairs shaded by trees and lit by candlelight. The bar itself is in a small traditional building on one side of the courtyard. It has wooden shutters on the windows and resembles a rather neglected summerhouse that you might find in a country garden at home. Inside itís quite basic with a sofa, a low table and not much else. The toilets are outside across the alleyway. As for the beers, they were excellent, as was the service. There were nine taps on and everything is served in pints, although half measures and sampler trays of four beers were available if you asked the barman nicely. All in all, itís a great place and Iíd encourage anyone whoís in Beijing to seek it out. Itís well worth the effort. (Visited 20 September 2013).

What a hard place to find but well worth it. Even the locals we asked didnít even know where it was. A superb range of beer and the porter was delicious. We asked the owner about the brewery AND ALTHOUGH THE BREWING EQUIPMENT IS STILL THERE ALL THE BREWING IS NOW DONE AT THEIR "FLAGSHIP BREWERY" which I shall load now. Still 100% worth going to this place, itís unique.

This is a fantastic spot in the mittle of an old hutong, and you have to search if you want to find the bar. The Beer is brewed in an very old fashion way but teste Quit good. A must visit in Beijing

First you have to find this pub, do not give up! After you have found it you are impressed, a unique location. Shame I was there in the winter, believe the beer garden is great too. They brew more than 10 beers using a very manual process, must be hard work. Although the beers are too sweet for my taste, this is must place to visit.

One of the best brewpub experiences I have ever had. Visited this place on an about one week business trip to Beijing and this was like an oasis in the middle of Tsingtao.

Wow! After a couple weeks travelling around China drinking pale lagers, it was a relief to taste some real beer finally. What better atmosphere could you have than a laid-back well-treed hutong courtyard. 11 in-house beers on tap. Couldnít try them all. Mostly ex-pat crowd. Can order delivery food from nearby restaurants. Great experience. Went back here three times on our short trip to Beijing.
