Beijing’s emerging craft brewing scene will get another shot in the arm next month with the city’s first annual Craft Beer Festival, taking place on June 2 at Beijing Shijingshan Electrical Relay Factory. The event, the first of its kind in the Chinese capital, comes off the heels of the first annual Shanghai Beer Week and Sinan Mansions Beer Festival, the latter of which attracted over 2,000 attendees. As Michael Jordan, brewmaster of Shanghai’s Boxing Cat Brewery, told Jing Daily this week of the turnout at the recent event, “Shanghai beer week was very successful, and we are happy to see craft beer gaining a foothold in Shanghai…we were thrilled that people came out in droves despite the poor weather. It lets us know that we’ll need additional space for the event next year!”
