Shanghai Beer Week began in 2012 with the purpose of celebrating local craft beer, also known as ‘better beer’, in our fair city of Shanghai, China. As residents of Shanghai ourselves, and as organizers, we enjoy the unique personalities and dynamics of the local beer scene.
With that in mind, we know that there is great potential to celebrate ‘better beer’ in the city. Although we are very familiar with the craft beer scene in Shanghai and its strong network of followers, many might not even know of its existence.
By devoting an entire week to ‘better beer,’ we can bring new followers into the fold by introducing flavorful and interesting beer in a completely new environment, whether it be a food pairing, a brewery tour or a beer tasting.
Shanghai Beer Week is also the buildup to the Sinan Mansions Beer Festival – the grand finale that brings together the entire beer community. It is the perfect opportunity for the people of Shanghai to enjoy some of the best beer and food that the city has on offer while sharing the great atmosphere in an outdoor festival.
