15 years ago, the only Chinese beers anyone was used to cracking open were weak, mass-produced lagers like Tsingtao, Snow or Harbin… Whilst these pair okay with local grub, in the last 5 years, breweries in Sichuan have begun to produce some of the best craft beer in China. Brands like DaoNiang 道酿, GuiShou 鬼手, NBeer, Wild West, Maltseeds, 9 States and Nanmen are leading the way and putting Chengdu on the craft beer map.

Today, Chengdu also has hundreds of bottle shops, and whilst bottled brews are fine, we wanted to showcase the thing that pumps the lifeblood into the craft beer scene – draft. Here are some of the city’s most loved Craft Beer Bars following by districts in the city.

 

The Beer Nest 啤酒窝酒吧

This cellar-style bar opposite the Poly Center was one of the first craft beer places in town. It offers over 30 beers, including several local brews on tap, bottled Belgium beers, cocktails, and non-alcoholic drinks. It has become somewhat of an institution in the city, and tables often spill out onto the pavement outside in the summer. They also host regular standup comedy and open mic nights.

Daily Promotions:

Chengdu Craft Beers: “Buy 1, Get 1 Free”  (2-8pm)

Opening Hours:

 6pm – late.

Address:

 Jinxiu Road 34 – 7 (Across Poly Center Ping’an bank)

Hugo Craft Beer Bar  雨果精酿

Hugo’s Brewpub was founded in March 2015, out of the passion of three homebrewers. Being different from most of the self-titled “beer experience” bottle shops, they have been focusing on providing the best draft beer experience ever since the beginning. They hold 24 taps and more than half of those taps are constantly rotating with lots of rare and high rating world best brews. As one of the first taproom-style beer bars in Chengdu, they influenced and helped lots of the newcomers, but still reckon they are the NO.1 choice for craft heads in Chengdu when comes to craft beer.

Opening Hours:

 5pm-2am

Address:

紫杉路步行街22号(紫荆南路上海花园)

22 Zishan Road (Pedestrian street next to Millennium Hotel)
