Slow Boat is proud to offer a seasonally rotating selection of brews. Last year we produced 54 different beers! For that reason it’s best to visit or call to find our daily tap list.
Founded in the summer of 2011, Slow Boat began as a small pilot brewery nestled high within the mountains surrounding Beijing. We are proud to offer small-batch brews that push the creative boundaries of Chinese craft beer, and we are dedicated to furthering the Chinese craft movement by making beer that China is proud to call its own.
Founders, Daniel Hebert and Chandler Jurinka, both Americans and long-term Beijing expats, became friends in 2009 over their shared appreciation for craft beer. Two years later, Slow Boat Brewery was born out of their desire to bring North American brewing styles to China, while still creating uniquely Chinese beers. The name “Slow Boat” comes from the song, “Slow Boat to China” written by Frank Loesser in the late 40s. The lyrics refer to a long enjoyable trip from the United States to China… an aptly fitting metaphor if we do say so ourselves.
WE’RE HIRING! We are looking for passionate people to sell, promote, and grow our expanding portfolio of innovative craft beer in China. Previous sales experience is preferred but not necessary. Full training is provided. If you’re organized, competitive, hardworking, and persistent then we would love to meet you. Slow Boat Brewery offers great pay, full benefits, vacation, and a fun work environment for those with a desire to grow in a highly regarded independent brewery. Send a résumé to email@example.com.
