The Hutong’s Winter Fayre is one of their biggest community events of the year and it also happens to be where I end up doing most of my Christmas shopping every year.
Most of Beijing’s Christmas bazaars and fairs have all been taking place across the city in various embassies and hotels over the past couple weekends, but The Hutong’s Winter Fayre is the LAST Christmas Bazaar of the year and it’s taking place this Saturday, December 12th from 11AM-4PM.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors with The Hutong’s Harvest Festival with Great Leap
This Saturday, October 24th, The Hutong is teaming up with Great Leap Brewing to host Beijing’s Harvest Festival.
In a charming little village called Tianxianyu located just below the Mutianyu and Jiankou section of the Great Wall, The Hutong and Great Leap gang will be sharing one of their favorite escapes just outside Beijing for a full day of BBQ, craft beer and games.
“To celebrate a bountiful harvest, we will be barbecuing pigs and fish, pouring Great Leap harvest-themed beers, competing in old-school field day games, and cap it off with campfire stories around a bonfire. No matter how you spend the day, it’s a great way to enjoy a day with family and friends.” – The Hutong

Hole in the Wall Hong Kong Noodle Joint
Since my office is close by, I just stumbled upon Qi Ye (Qing Tang Nan) 七爷清汤腩 by total accident because we were hungry and walking in the general direction of a handful of our regular office lunch go-to spots. What lured me in was not the slick wood and brick exterior, but a retro photo of Bruce Lee displayed on their wall. It caught our eye as something out of place for your average Chinese restaurant and we wanted to see more.

Great Leap Hosts its 4th Annual Chili Cook-Off!
A concept originally created by SeeDiceGo Productions for the original Great Leap Brewing location in the hutongs, I still remember Great Leap’s first Chili Cook-Off 4 years ago!
Back then, they only had 10 contestants but fast forward four years later and it’s incredible how this event has grown! All contestants now get customized aprons and stations to display their 15 liters of piping-hot chili, enough for the hundreds of chili-hungry spectators to sample their way through the various recipes and vote for their top favorites.

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!
