京A Brewing Co.  The award-winning craft brewery based out of Beijing. Visit our Brewpub for a taste of the good stuff...

Our West Coast collab trip and tea party continues... this time with our good friends and master brewers @breaksidebrews in Portland. Together we brewed up a kettle sour on their Slabtown kit that will be infused with Oolong tea, coriander seed, and fresh pineapple. Thanks Ben + Hunter for great day of brewing, and very excited to see how this one turns out!

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...

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!

Keep an eye out for more news and tickets on sale sept 5th!
