Solid place to go. I had the Southpaw Winter Warmer and the TKO IPA, both of which were solid. I also had a good sandwich. I also had a Rochefort 10, which was one a few bottles they had in addition to the Boxing Cat beers. Had an NFL game from week 3 of the NFL season on, which was about 14 weeks before I visited, but at least it appeared there was some appreciation for American sports here. I like the feeling of the place, the food is good, and the Boxing Cat beers are solid from what I sampled. Waitstaff struggled a bit with English, but overall was good and attentive. It helped that I was the only person in the place when I arrived at around 4:30PM on a Friday. Definitely worth a visit.
Visited here on 30 September and have been here before. Draft beers are great and good value in happy hour (from opening until 8pm) at Y35. Decent service. Food ok, had the classic burger which was fine.
Nice place in Shanghai. Good service and good food. 6 beers on tap with good quality.

The beer brewed here was generally very good to excellent with 6 selections on tap (I had the sampler of all 6). I had the BCB burger for dinner and it was fantastic. One of the best burgers I have had anywhere. The prices are not unreasonable either. The inside was a little crowded which was the only down side.
6 beers on tap that rotate often. Pay particular attention to the Boxers Choice beers which range greatly in style. A must visit in Shanghai. They also carry a nice bottle beer selection. The food portions are very good for the price. Great garden patio if the weather accommodates!
Boxing Cat is the best microbrewery in China! We are visiting this pub located at Fuxing Lu West (no brewery on site) very regularly. Interesting beer innovations and frequently changing beer offering (Yunnan Red Ale, Wet Hop Ale, Rye IPA,....). Suckerpunch Pale Ale is our favorite beer brewed in China. Food is good, too, like the spicy sandwiches and the Chili Fries. Do not recommend the burgers. Also like the ambience of a typical US brewpub. Like sitting at the fire place during winter or outside in spring and autumn. Service is much better than in Fuxing park pub and one of the best in Shanghai. So glad this pub does exist as it has become our favorite local pub in Shanghai.
Nice place, ordered their tasters with a Sparring Session Ale, Brawlin’ Belgian Witbier, Hoppy Ending White IPA, Sucker Punch Pale Ale, TKO IPA and Big Boy DIPA. Nice ambience, full of expat, the only negative note was a very loud music with a ridiculous amount of annoying frequencies, which pumped right in my ear for the whole time I sat there. I mean, the songs were good, but the EQ made the experience really terrible, at least for me. Very nice brews (the IPA and DIPA were the freshest I’ve had in my life), exception made for the belgian witbier, which was not very convincing, and the white IPA, which was closer to a wit than the actual wit. Nice place but the Sinan Mansions location is way better.
