Nice relaxed bar in a great area. The TKO IPA is interesting and the Trippel Threat is dangerously strong at 8.2% ABV. Next to this bar a short stroll down on 531 FuXing road is the Hiachino Mansion brewery

Pleasant spot across from Fuxing Park. Nice leafy area and it makes for a good stroll around the mansions for first time visitors. The bar is found on the ground floor with lounges and communal tables and there is further seating and space upstairs. The Boxing Cat core range is available alongside one or two seasonals. Food is pub grub and leans towards American soul food, and this also follows suit at their sister venues, however I have found the quality can drastically vary here. This place regularly gets a good crowd as the spot is a convenient option to grab a few beers with friends and happy hour prices are a good deal. Closest metro stop:- Xintiandi.

I went in this bar with my family. The beers are perfect and changing from the boring products of the macrobrewery. The service is nice, the only negative comment is that the staff don’t speak english and they were not knowing all the beers available, even though my notation is good. The prices for the food are not cheap but the quality is ok. I strongly recommend to try the imperial stout.

Pleasant relaxed bar, with focus on own beers. Mix of bar and lounge seating. Big bar with prominent taps. Mixed crowd, not obviously beer aficionados. Six own beers on tap with maybe ten bottled beers. Four own beers I sampled were good. Service was good. Served food, looked good but didn’t try it. Pretty good value for money - 4 glass (~200ml) sampler for 75RMB. (BTW, I visited first on the Friday before Halloween and turned away as it was no longer a bar but a Halloween party disco with staff in cat costumes.)

Great beer, and ya gotta love Shanghai. Apparently Boxing Cat was started by a couple of guys from Oregon, and it shows. Very Pacific Northwest styles of beer, strong and hoppy. There are some interesting stories about them establishing the brewing operation in China, convincing the authorities that they were legitimate. I was told that they grow their own ingredients from seed and stock brought from the US. The staff was dressed in cool sports jersey tops, and I wanted to buy one (said "Boxing Cat Brewery" with their logo on the front and "Shanghai 08" on the back). What a fuss that caused! They didn’t quite know how to deal with it, staff tripping over one another - but an hour later, we left with our jerseys, RMB100... Just a few blocks from where the Chinese Communist Party was established, in Xiantiandi (ironically, that site charges admission).

Close to my regular hotel so will be a regular now. No set beers as such, just regular ever changing brews. My visit in Novemeber 2014 had Right Hook Helles, Standing 8 Pislner, Contender Extra Pale Ale, Donkey Punch porter, a rancid Pumpkin and TKO IPA. Food is a Western menu. Can’t remember Wifi. Should be here on Feb 8th.
