Eventually and luckily stumbled upon this brewery pub deep within a Beijing hutong on our recent trip. Wow it's hard to find, you feel like the guys in The Beach who have to jump off a cliff and trawl through jungle with only belief that their paradise is waiting. Here it was. I've been getting into my quality beer recently, working my way through the finest IPA's, trappist brews and so forth. Must say that The Great Leap has some of the most wonderful beers I have ever tasted. Creamy deep stouts (one with chai massala), kolsch lagers, best of all a honey and Sichuan pepper IPA (I think). Had a lovely chat with the brewmaster who has exactly the right attitude. He posseses the skill to make fine beers but obviously does it with a smile and a touch of creativity. This place is an absolute gem with beers which should be winning awards.
