Spice Craft Beer in Beijing


Spice Craft Beer in Beijing

Chinese craft beer is called Jīng niàng píjiu or Chinese Brewed Liquor. The overseas influence has brought an increase in small breweries throughout Beijing. Panda Brew Pub represents them with its panda logo. The brewery has developed its own recipes using honey, ginger, and herbal medications such as citrus peel and ku ding. The brewery now offers fifteen types of beer. One can taste beers while looking at the facilities through a massive window. While the brewery is small, it has received large-scale investments and is a rapidly growing venture. Beijing is home to three shops, and the company has recently expanded to Qingdao and Xiamen. Panda Brew Pub offers e-commerce sites as well. The spicy beers are the most popular, and in Beijing’s summer, Panda Brew Pub is the one thing that will take your mind off the heat.
