Always impressed by the tasty craft beer. The wheat beer is my favorite. When I arrive I always have to drink a Heike Mate which is like a natural energy drink.

The O-Fest at ZAPFLER is an affordable affair, no entry fees, no expensive live music, no expensive buffet. You pay as you drink and eat. You are not forced to reserve a full table as it is at many similar events in S/H:

You go there basically for the beer. My favorite is the great German wheat beer. It tastes good and reasonably priced. You can stop by for a pint of any beer in deed.

My favorite place for Craft Beer in Shanghai! Their craft beer selection is fantastic. On Tuesdays they do a BBQ which is great. Staff is friendly. This is your place to be for craft beer and German comfort food.

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French
Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that
is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While
it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will
sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their
mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area
seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet,

Zapfler is all about awesome craft beer and great people. The beers are brewed under the 500-year-old German Reinheitsgebot by Southern-German brewmeister Dirk Frauenheim. While Zapfler specializes in German Weizen and Helles bier, they also provide a tasty IPA and Pale Ale. All these beers can be enjoyed in the great atmosphere of our bar or outside on the terrace at Found 158. Feeling tired? Then make sure to give Zapfler's Heike Maté a try!
