A beer drinkers guide to the Hong Kong Island

96%
Found this guide helpful

Hong Kong used to be a desert for interesting beer. That's changed in the last couple of years and you no longer need to subject yourself to a diet of watery Carlsberg in Wan Chai and Lan Kwai Fong. Hong Kong has a small but growing number of brewers and there some great places to enjoy some great beer.

    Tipping Point brews its own beers on the premises, as well serving an eclectic range of beers on tap and in the bottle. The brewmaster, Troy, is a hard working, friendly chap. He was cleaning the lines when we were there, which is a good sign. The food is excellent.

    Sheung Wan isn't known for its bar scene, but Jacomax and its neighbour - Blackstar - make it worth the trip. Jacomax does a solid range of beers in the bottle ranging from blondes to stouts and everything in between. For mine, the pizzas are only OK, but it is a relaxing place for a beer and a chat.

    Across the road from Jacomax, Blackstar is probably more for cocktail lovers than beer lovers - but they serve a range of 961 beers from Lebanon, including the herbaceous Lebanese Pale Ale (or LPA). Classy and quiet and good for people watching if you face the street.

    This is a typical mid-levels, LKF style boozer - but don't let that put you off. They have a range of bottled beers that's sure to have one that you haven't had. It's grungy as they come with a "feature" being peanut shells on the floor and the constant presence of pigeons roaming between tables. I've never eaten at Cochranes, but it is typical expat fare. Another great pub for people watching.

    Officially my favourite HK bar. Easily the best range of taps in HK. At least 20 taps. A great supporter of Young Masters Ales - HK's best brewer. They do some fine US style food as well. Up the top of Peel Street, just below Caine Street. Because it isn't a thoroughfare, there's no finer place to drink on the street than the Roundhouse. There's

    A relative newcomer to the HK beer scene. So new that they aren't even registered as a brewer on Untappd (until now!). Hopefully the roadworks out the front stop soon. They brew their own beer as well as serving a solid range of other craft beers on tap and in the bottle. Tight place on a corner and great for watching large trucks make the impossible turn.

    Regarded by many as Hong Kong's pre-eminent craft beer venue. They've always got something that you haven't had on the menu. Great place for food. Range of seating options including the highest bar stools I've ever climbed up.
