Overview
More
The brewery that started Beijing's craft beer revolution in 2010 is still pouring some of the best beer around. With as many as 20 beers on tap, and rarely fewer than 17, we've got the largest selection of locally brewed beer on tap in town, nothing in bottles, nothing shipped from across the ocean, just pure, fresh beer. While we don't have food available, we have menus from many of our neighboring restaurants and can help you order great food like pizza, dumplings, kebabs, or simple Chinese food.

Picked that place for some craft beer based on good reviews. Totally disappointed! It has a tiny indoor area with a few tables. The outside area was crowded and noisy and a lot of people were smoking. You go inside to get the beer and...More

I was here twice during my visit to Beijing and would definitely come back. Solid beers. The Little General IPA uses Chinese hops. The Honey Ma was nice for people who do not like IPAs. I also liked their pale ale. They have seasonal and...More

Loved this little craft brewery tucked away in a hutong. Went to another popular craft brewery in the newer part of the city, by the Sanlitung Bar Street, and liked this gem here way more!

As many of you know, Great Leap has been a renowed name in Beijing's Nightlife. A great variety of beers (mostly mixes of IPAs, Lagers, Wheat-based and Pilsners) and other imported brands like Mikeller do their debut in here. Previously sold some food like pizzas...More

Great leap Brewing is "hidden" in the Hutong area of the centre near Houhai and Beihai parks and its really worth visiting it to have a break from all the noise and people. It has a cute yard and great selection of beers. Worth visiting!

If you like craft beer this place is worth a visit. The building has a lot of character and the beer is good. Outdoor seating is nice but a lot of people were smoking cigarettes. We don’t like cigarette smoke so it got old fast....More

Great little brewery situated deep in the Hutong with a local feel. Secluded court yard creates a relaxed ambience. Dozens of tap options with local staff. Free WiFi. No reason not to stop in for a craft beer and snack as you navigate the hutong...More

Excellent craft beer. There are three Great Leaps - one in Dongzhimen, one in Liangmaqiao, and this one in the Hutong area - a very popular area consisting of restored traditional Beijing architecture. This one is probably closest to the subway, but ironically also probably...More
