We loved hearing about how they support their community including orphans and farmers. The tour was great and it was very cool hearing about how they started and how they have grown since then. We got to sample 9 fantastic beers and 4 gins at the end. Very generous portions and 60 RMB per person!

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and she herself was an orphan turned brewery worker. She walked us through the hall and explained many of the pictures in there. We got to check out the brewery itself from a catwalk and she explained all the equipment, processes and artwork.

Getting a tour is tricky. You have to call in advance now so check out their website to find the number to book a brewery tour.

Getting there was tricky as we couldn't enter the correct address in Didi in English or Chinese. When we asked the brewery they said that going to the Qingkou Industrial Area was ok and to tell the driver to go to the brewery. Our driver seemed very confident he knew where he was going but got a little lost and had to speak to the brewery to figure it out. We believe that if you enter "Guidi Guzangman Tribes" in Didi that should work.

Based on several of these reviews, we attempted to arrange a brewery tour. We tried via both WeChat and phone call at two different times and were told they are a production company and not a tourist destination. Perhaps others have had better luck?

We were able to sample many of their beer offerings at local places around town, and I would definitely recommend their brews.

We came to the brewery because we love beer. However, we left loving the mission of the brewery and how it helps others. Loved it! 80 RMB for the tour and samples of all the beer.

Very professionally run business. Beer tastes great and there is something for everyone. Labels are very creative and colourful. My favourite was the Fat Domo

Possibly the best brewery we've ever been to. 80% of the workers here grew up in the orphanage operated by the owner's mother in shangri la and Lhasa. Not the mention the awesome 🍻
Was shown around the experimental labs by the owner too. And given some fresh beer right out of the reactor to sample.
Absolutely love Shangri la beer and its social responsible roots!

Shangri la beer is currently exported to Switzerland and the US. I've also tried this beer in a Tibetan gallery in Macau :)

We showed up without booking a tour on their first day open after the Chinese New Year. I would recommend calling in advance to book a tour to make sure you get an English guide, but we got lucky and had a spur of the moment tour and tasting. The story of how it was founded was very interesting and they had a surprising variety of beer options. We were very impressed and they were gracious hosts. Highly recommend coming to this if you’re in Shangri-La!

Impressive what Somny, Tseten and their team has built! World class beer in a stunning atmosphere!
Touring the brewery and tasting their beer is a must do if you are in Shangri-La!
Thank you all for a great experience and for making awesome beer :)

We visited after giving them a call a few days before to confirm. We were accompanied by a very nice woman (deputy CEO if I understood correctly), who spoke great English and gave us the tour of the factory, with interesting facts and anecdotes along the way. This was followed by a great beer tasting (maybe try to do the tour in the afternoon if you want to fully enjoy the 7 beers they have !) They offered us free lunch after that with the workers, but we had to decline to take a bus. Still they drove us back to the old town rather than let us book a taxi. We also had the opportunity to chat quickly with the CEO, a very nice and interesting man.
Practical matters, the visit is 30min - 1h, plus the beer tasting. All in all it costs 60 yuan pp.
In conclusion, one of the highlights of our stay in Shangri-La, definitely not touristy yet, to learn a great story and discover great beers.

After reading the stellar reviews, I emailed the brewery to arrange a tour. Dolma Lhamu, the CEO's right hand, showed us around and we even managed to catch a few words with the CEO. Easily the best brewery tour I've been on and a very inspiring story behind its creation and the team running it. Was also great to try the full range including the IPA only sold within China by mail order. Delicious!

One of the must-do tour of the best local craft breweries China. I visited the production line and enjoyed a great presentation from the CEO on my university travel study tour. The CEO had experience in Switzerland and spoke fluent English. He answered many questions about his business experience in Shangri-La. Very inspiring story behind a bottle of local beer. Great for young people, beer lovers, and those who love to hear a story from this land.
绝对是来香格里拉必须参观本地高品质工艺啤酒厂。我有幸能在学校游学途中参观该啤酒厂的生产线,听到CEO分享他如何创业如何帮助本地的孤儿院。CEO是从瑞士回来的西藏人,讲一口流利的英语。他热情地回答了我和同学们很多关于创业等问题。他对孤儿的爱心和他企业家型的坚持,让我很感动。鼓励年轻人,啤酒家,热爱这片土地的人一定要参观。
