The brewery that started Beijing's craft beer revolution in 2010 is still pouring some of the best beer around. With as many as 20 beers on tap, and rarely fewer than 17, we've got the largest selection of locally brewed beer on tap in town, nothing...more

Came here with my sister at night. The taxi dropped us off on a Main Street and we had to walk through a dark, small and busy alleyway. Beer was decent, a good mixture between locals and tourist. Prices vary but for two beers it...More

China's craft brewery scene is in full swing, but is very much rooted and influenced by American brewers. That's not a bad thing, but they're still in the copy and imitate stage of evolution, rather than creatively expressing and innovating unique flavors for China. Great...More

I was impressed to find good craft beer in Beijing because most locally brewed beers are low ABV lagers. So, Great Leap was a great find but they really do charge too much for their beers. I saw beers from $3 to $10USD with most...More

Don’t show up at 10:32 when last call is at 10:30. You won’t find flexibility or friendliness here. Wish I could comment on the beer but I didn’t get to try it.

Been here twice and enjoyed their beer. Great beer and a cool place to hang out. It's a bit difficult to find, even with GPS, as it's buried within a hutong and the entrance is not very visable. But it's definitely worth to search for...More

Great brewery with good beer. If you didn't know you were in the middle of Beijing you would think you were at a watering hole in the states. Great outdoor area as well.

We had fun trying several of the 20-ish craft brews they had on tap. Loved the outdoor seating and the location in a traditional Hutong.

Great Leap is another hole in the Hutong that is worth the trip. I really enjoyed hanging out with my friends. It seems to be mostly expats and some tourists. You can definitely get some beer you like. I bought a tshirt, good quality and...More

I cannot say enough good things about this brewery. I've been to #45 several times but this was the first time at #6. The beer is outstanding, as good, if not better than what you will get in the states. There is no food available,...More
