Atmospheric location, deep in the hutong. Smaller than the #12 location, and with slightly fewer beers. Didnít eat here, assumed it was the same burger fare as other US expat style brewpubs in Beijing. Highly recommended.

Cool little place in the Beijing hutongs. The inside bar looks pretty modern and newish, the outside is very rundown and dingy, very in line with the surroundings which is what I like. I think the setting of this place is its bigest selling point. Beer selection wise, I had a couple of taster sets of a pretty wide range of beers. Looked like they had about 18-20ish beers on tap, but quite a few were blown when I was there. Well worth checking out if youíre in Beijing and looking for an ipa or stout.

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. We came again 28.11.2014. Unfortunately the brewhouse has disappeared, however still a fantastic place with a lot of character.

Thereís nothing in Beijing like a beer at Great Leap on a summer blue sky day.

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.
