“Good beer and food is good if you choose well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Went with work colleagues and the beer is good especially the white ant which is wheat beer nearly as good as from the best German bier kellers. No one enjoyed the IPA.
The food is good to bad so just make sure you choose well. The pizzas are huge and look great, the burger was a disappointment to my colleague from Michigan, the pitta bread had duck with bones in it as a filling, but my honey chicken was just like from PF Changs in Dearborn which is actually a fine compliment as I love PF Changs and they even provided chopsticks on request. The atmosphere was not at all good. Full of old guys and a terrible band that drowned out the conversation and we were on the opposite side form the band. the place emptied wehn the band came on about 9pm. Best to go at around 7 as you will miss the band and get buy one get one free for happy hour on the beer costing 80RMB including service (this was a Tuesday so phone in advance if you are planning to go Thurs-Sat). So i think if you choose your time to go, order the right stuff, and go when it is a more eclectic mix of folks and not when the band is playing you are in for a treat.

“Skinny Green great beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Good place with a micro brewery. The beers are tasty and decent. if you are hungry try Cobb salad or the sausages. The outdoor seats are nice, inside it is sometimes a bit too crowded, especially in time of international fairs.

“Nice bar with great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch for two - a specialty stout, a coke, two appetizers and an italian noodle dish. Service was very quick and polite, restaurant was clean, the onion rings were outstanding. The bill was a bit steep at 330 rmb, but I'll come back. The Kerry is very nice. Additionally, they have a little cupcake shop near the bar that has some of the best cupcakes I've EVER had for 23 rmb each.

“Very Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

i had been wanting to try "The Brew" the past 2 times I've been in Shanghai for business. Finally went and I must say it was worth it. I'll go back again. Great beer, good food and great atmosphere. If you are in the area and like beer definitely stop in.
