A Family-Stay Brunch Presented by Chef Rob Cunningham of FEAST
After Great Leap Brewing‘s first series of The Chef & The Brewer with Chef Andreas Block of The Fairmont’s The Cut steakhouse restaurant, their next featured chef is the talented Rob Cunningham of FEAST (Food by EAST).
Taking place at Great Leap’s newest branch (their 3rd one, #45 Brewpub on Xinyuan Road), Chef Rob has masterminded a superb menu with 6 starters, 4 mains and I can’t wait to stuff my face with that Banana & Chocolate Calzone with Vanilla Ice Cream. *droooooool*

Ok…for realsies now! The 3rd Great Leap Opens Their Doors!
It’s crazy how much time has passed since we last heard about Great Leap Brewing‘s 3rd location opening! I just checked and realized that the last time I wrote to announce the imminent arrival of Great Leap’s 3rd location north of Sanlitun was way back when (specifically in June last year)…seems like everyone jumped the gun a bit early on that one!
Just when you almost started to forget there was a third one on its way, half a year later and… BOOM! Great Leap surprises all with its last-minute announcement that they’re finally ready to start hosting guests this weekend for soft opening tastings- January 24 & 25th!
If you’re in town and keen to check out one of Beijing’s most highly anticipated openings, be sure you rally up friends (best if it’s in groupings of 8) and be the cool one in your group to take charge in making a booking in advance!

Sneak Peek Snapshot of the Newest Great Leap Brewing Branch just north of Sanlitun
It’s official: there’s going to be a THIRD Great Leap!!!!
It was just over a year ago (May 2013) when Great Leap Brewing first expanded out of their original location in the hutongs around the corner from Mercante Italian restaurant into the Sanlitun hood within walking distance of April Gourmet near Xinfucun Zhonglu (幸福中街). What a smart move that was! I remember it was packed from even before the first day they opened (their soft opening burger tasting sessions were a crowd pleaser) and has continued to remain just as packed more than one year later.
And it’s wonderful to see that they’re doing well enough to be opening a third location just north of Sanlitun (just south of the ever-popular Sanyuanli Market). Just announced via a press release (very official indeed), this new restaurant and brewpub will still be focused on craft brews, but instead of burgers like their flagship location in Xinfucun Zhonglu, they will be serving up handcrafted pizzas and chicken wings.
“Breaking News! The ink is barely dry on the new lease, but it’s official: Great Leap is opening it’s third Beijing location! Our new restaurant and brewpub will be located at No. 45-1 Xinyuanjie, Chaoyang District, with construction to begin late July. This location will include a brand new 1200L brewery, with the capacity of 15,000L a month.” - Lucía Wang, Great Leap’s PR & Events Director
