Description: Great Leap Brewing #12 Brewpub pairs the best craft beer Beijing has to offer with burgers that are consistently voted among the best in town. With a brewpub ambience not unlike what you might find in the USA or Europe, the brewhouse and fermentors are all in plain view. Hardwood tables, steel signs, and chalkboards give it a hand-crafted, local feel, much like the beer itself. Our philosophy is to source a majority of locally grown ingredients, including local hops, teas, spices, fruits, vegetables, coffees, sugars and honeys, creating craft beer that truly represents the best of China. Hours: Sun-Thurs 11:00am-1am, reservations until 7pm and Fri-Sat 11:00am-2am, reservations until 6pm.

“Microbrewery in Beijing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

You could be in Portland - Seattle - or San Francisco. But no, you are in Beijing. Great range of beers. Best burger in Beijing. Seriously. It's that good. Expat friends I met there raved about the burgers. And make sure you go search out the original home in the hutongs (open currently only at the weekends.

“Good pub, good beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

Have visited three times over the past month and have always found the Great leap to be busy, but always able to get a seat. A nice buzzy atmosphere and quick service. The choice of beers is good and a couple of days a week selected beers are just 25RMB
Food is fine, burgers etc. but it is the beer, brewed on the premises that will keep me going back.
Worth a visit

“Excellent IPA, Great Food, Friendly Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

Upon arriving in Beijing and telling my local friend which hotel I was staying in, he immediately said "go down the street and try the Great Leap Brewery". Good advice. The IPA beer was strong and flavorful. The bartender was pleased to tell me about the different brewed-on-site beers available. Returned later for lunch and had a tasty salad. It will be a regular stop for me in Beijing... and should be for you too.
