Craft beers come to Hong Kong

In a city more accustomed to wine (importing it is duty-free) and baiju (a potent Chinese liquor often drunk on special occasions), a small group of craft beer devotees is spreading the word that not all brews are created equal.

One of their first moves is a festival called Beertopia, taking place on 28 April in Hong Kong’s Sheung Wan neighbourhood.

Along with the chance to sample more than 90 beers from microbreweries as far afield as New Zealand and Estonia, the festival offers lectures on home brewing and pairing beer with food. Live music, food and raffles are on offer, as well as the opportunity to play seminal college drinking games like beer pong and flip cup.
