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. 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....

We are very excited to announce the opening of our permanent Slow Boat Brewery Taproom in the Dongsi neighborhood on December 15th. Our Taproom will be host to the largest selection of beers on tap in Beijing. Beer lovers can now venture to one location to try the full range of our brews and learn what Slow Boat is all about. UPDATE: See Address and Directions posted at the bottom The Concept: The Slow Boat Brewery Taproom is a comfortable public meeting place where people can enjoy the company of old friends or go to meet new acquaintances, all in a hutong atmosphere.  Heated floors, thick American red oak bar, and handmade furniture will keep guests comfortable during even the coldest of winter months.  Although the focus of any Taproom is undoubtedly on beer, the Slow Boat Brewery Taproom is serving a range of other refreshments, including a few made with our own handmade sodas. Food is also available. The Beer: The design of our Taproom emphasizes fresh handcrafted beer. 20 taps along one wall will draw beer directly from our walk-in cooler, which will keep the beers at a constant 3 degrees Celsius. The full range of Slow Boat beers will be on tap including many that can’t be found on tap elsewhere. Due to its size and design, the Slow Boat Brewery Taproom will be one of a kind for Beijing. What’s Nearby? Located on a tree-lined hutong, the Slow Boat Brewery Taproom is short walk from both the Zhangzizhonglu and Dongsishitiao subway stops and conveniently situated between the Sanlitun and Gulou neighborhoods. The surrounding area boasts popular spots like Crescent Moon, Red Capital Club, and the famous Wu Ge Ji Chi (五哥鸡翅). For music lovers, Yugong Yishan is just around the corner. Upcoming Activities: On December 1st Slow Boat will release a calendar of events for the upcoming months.  In addition to our regularly scheduled events, the Taproom will also be available for private parties and events. Whether you’ve been a beer lover for years or are just now acquiring a taste for craft beer, everyone is invited to join us at the Taproom for a relaxed evening of delicious brews and good company. Our taps will start pouring beer on December 15th. Please feel free to contact us with questions or for additional information. Direct all emails to Sallie@slowboatbrewery.com. Further details regarding the location will be provided when renovations are near completion. UPDATE: Our Taproom will be located at 东城区东四八条56号, Dongcheng District Dongsi Batiao #56. Directions: The Taproom is closer to the west entrance of Dongsi Batiao. From the Zhangzizhonglu Subway stop, walk south to the second street (Dongsi Batiao) and turn left (towards the east). Our Taproom is 100 meters down the hutong on the right. ...
