Just like any major world city these days, you can find some decent craft beer in Hong Kong, but a lot has changed. A few breweries make good beer, and there are a few good beer bars to drink them in. However, recent years have seen the craft beer industry be decimated in Hong Kong, with many familiar beer bars & breweries ceasing operations. Here is the best craft beer in Hong Kong, or what’s left of the scene.
The Best Craft Beer Bars in Hong Kong
The Globe was closed for a few days at the beginning of the New Year, but I was glad that I was able to make it in before the end of my visit to Hong Kong. The draft list featured 7 local taps, 4 guest taps (which happened to be from New Zealand at the time), plus 8 other taps of more mainstream beers and ales. The true gem here is their bottle list, which features hundreds of unique beers from around the world.
The staff members were very knowledgable. Toby Cooper, who is the Director of the bar, pointed me in the direction of some obscure local bottles I hadn’t seen anywhere else, such as Yardley Brothers. This is a place that is truly supporting a growing beer scene in Hong Kong. When one beer had a bit of a bottling issue, he gave it to me on the house. The bar has a strong British influence, with another real jukebox playing music from British & American rock bands. They know their stuff at The Globe, and it’s easy to see why it’s a popular bar.
There are a few more beer bars in Hong Kong that I wasn’t able to try, including The Ale Project, The Beer Bay, and De Belgie. Overall, Hong Kong has some solid choices for beer drinkers, but in recent years, more and more great options have sadly been closing.
