Mark your calendars for the @8x8brewingproject returning to Beijing on October 26-27!
8x8 is an annual international beer festival organized by Jing-A.
Each year eight breweries from around greater China are invited and paired up with eight craft breweries from a specific region in the world. Together, they work to create a series of 8 new collaboration beers, and then pour them alongside many of their own favorite brews at the 8x8 festival in Beijing!
2017 was the inaugural year of 8x8, and if you came, you'll remember we invited over eight awesome breweries from the Pacific Northwest of the US to work with our brothers in the Chinese craft beer industry.
For 2018, we've shuffled a new selection of breweries into the mix from around greater China, and we've chosen a new region of the world that's quite famous for its exciting and vibrant craft beer scene... The eight breweries visiting from overseas this year will hail from Nordic countries, including Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Estonia!
Here's the full list...
From Greater China:
Jing-A Brewing Co.
Wild West Brewery
From Nordic Countries:
The 8x8 Festival will feature 4 three-hour sessions of free-flow beer tasting. The first session kicks off on the evening of Friday, Oct. 26th, followed by three more on Saturday, Oct. 27th.
The eight collaboration beers made specifically for 8x8 will pour at all sessions, so there's no risk you'll miss out on those.
Every brewery will have an additional two taps to pour their own beers, and these will change each session, for a total of 8 collaboration brews and 32 rotating beers available at each session.
That means there'll be 136 unique beers poured throughout the course of the festival!
There'll also be food vendors to help you keep up with all that beer, a live DJ, and other fun diversions!
