It sent me all over the place, into alleys where the name was correct as per google maps, but had me walking back after.
Didn't walk after a print out, used it to guide me real time by GPS, can't really recommend it for a first time visitor in this city.

To add the brewery, else where to add a beer from them, e.g. New Kong Wheat?


Also for any HK admin, additional to the above question, I've added three new beers to be verified:

https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/lion-rock-lady-in-re/555866/
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/yardley-brothers-mac/555871/

All have the info available on the beer menu at 65 Peel, and all were available there on tap on Sep 30.

As we don't have an HK-Admin at the moment, you can verify them, as you were there and made sure they exist... That's what I did when I was there and that's what all the other Admins do, that come across beers from there that look reliable... but I've read we're working on this lack ;)

I overheard the brewer say a couple months back that the next Hero would be a Berliner, so there's that :P

Also, added the HK YAU brewery, let me know if I got address etc at correct places:
https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/hk-yau/33112/

As for that brewery only added the beer I actually had, don't want to add the other ones from the web page they have, since I've not seen them myself.

I've yet to hear of it. Are they owned by Brooklyn? They feature pretty heavily on the website.

On my second over night layover, heading back home, headed to Mong Kok and visited The Ale Project, Cheers The Tap Room and Pazzeria Italian Brewery (Mong Kok).

Three nice places located on the same street, very nice.
Also google maps treated me better in this part of town, so was easy enough to find.

I did add Cheers to the places section, nice place if looking for local craft on taps.

Relevant recent podcast episode of Brewing in China: an interview with Toby Cooper of The Globe in Hong Kong. It's a good listen: https://soundcloud.com/brewinginchina/toby-cooper-of-the-globe-hong-kong
