“Our Taproom will be host to 20 taps — the largest selection of beers on tap in Beijing. Beer lovers can now venture to one location to try the full range of our brews and learn what Slow Boat is all about.”
Over the past year, I’ve seen Slow Boat Brewery‘s craft beers popping up in more and more locations including popular restaurants and bars all over the city, but for the first time, they are opening up their very own spot on Dongsi Batiao called The Taproom!
Not far from Zhangzizhonglu and Dongsishitiao subway stops, the Taproom is in the same neighborhood as Crescent Moon, Red Capital Club, and the famous chicken wings hot spot – Wu Ge Ji Chi’r (五哥鸡翅).
A destination designed for those who appreciate a pint of fine, handcrafted beer, the Taproom will feature a wall with “20 taps that will draw beer directly from a walk-in cooler, which will keep the beers at a constant 3 degrees Celsius.”
“The full range of Slow Boat beers will be on tap including many that can’t be found on tap elsewhere. Due to its size and design, the Slow Boat Brewery Taproom will be one of a kind for Beijing. Heated floors, thick American red oak bar, and handmade furniture will keep guests comfortable during even the coldest of winter months.”
That’s right- heated floors! Now we’re talking!
In addition to beers, Slow Boat will also serving a range of other refreshments, including a few made with their own handmade sodas. Expect a developing food menu in the works as well.
Celebrate the beginnings of a great new spot at their Soft Opening Party this Saturday, December 15 from 2PM onwards. They will be rewarding all those who make it over to their spot with an all-day blowout of beers flowing from their taps all day long.
“We’ll have 12 beers on tap, and beer will be flowing from the taps all day. Help us break in the new digs by downing a few pints with us on opening day.”
**Save the date for Taproom’s Grand Opening Party on the 20th of Dec and open full time for regular business starting Dec 22!
