Taproom <<开墙打洞>> Closing Party

Well folks, 5 years after we opened the Slow Boat Taproom on Dongsi Batiao, we have received notice that the architecture above us is in violation and will be removed. This has nothing to do with us. Our business and operating licenses were renewed less than 1 month ago. For those that don’t know, this is part of the 开墙打洞 campaign and there are three stages: 1) correct architectural violations, 2) brick up entrances / doors in violation, and lastly 3) buy back the land so it can be renovated and resold.

开墙打洞

When renovation starts our beloved Taproom will be closed. We are not certain how long. In fact, we’re not sure if we will be able to reopen. Only time will tell. Still, we are forced to plan for the worst.

Yeah. We’re sad too. But take heart! The news is not all bad. At the Taproom our last day of full food service will be Friday, the 19th but on Saturday, the 20th, we will be celebrating 5 years by offering pints of our Monkey’s Fist IPA for ¥5 a pint. So come over, grab a beer, and let’s go down with this ship.

    Please post that you decided not to open today.
    Plenty of people were wanting to bid you good luck.
    We understand your note to not open with respect to your neighbors.

    Sorry we missed you!
    Go Buffs!

      Linda – we did not get a chance to throw the 5 year anniversary party. There were simply too many folks in the last week so we had to call it off. In a month, when construction is done, we will know more. Fingers crossed!

    Hey, are you guys already closed? I was planning to check out your taproom when I come to Beijing in early July 🙁

      We are closed for renovation. During construction we suggest you visit our Sanlitun Brewpub location.
