My nephew had recommended we stop here and very glad we did. Outdoor patio had local feel. And we tried 8 of the offerings in our flights. Well worth getting off the beat and path into small neighborhood bar with best beer in China!

The place is full of Chinese and foreigners and it is a pub with a really good beer. The selection of beer is large and there are good special beers. The garden is a nice place to spend an evening

Came here with my sister at night. The taxi dropped us off on a Main Street and we had to walk through a dark, small and busy alleyway. Beer was decent, a good mixture between locals and tourist. Prices vary but for two beers it...More

China's craft brewery scene is in full swing, but is very much rooted and influenced by American brewers. That's not a bad thing, but they're still in the copy and imitate stage of evolution, rather than creatively expressing and innovating unique flavors for China. Great...More

I was impressed to find good craft beer in Beijing because most locally brewed beers are low ABV lagers. So, Great Leap was a great find but they really do charge too much for their beers. I saw beers from $3 to $10USD with most...More

Don’t show up at 10:32 when last call is at 10:30. You won’t find flexibility or friendliness here. Wish I could comment on the beer but I didn’t get to try it.
