I'm sorry to hear about your experience at our brewpub. I can assure you that this is not our standard response to leaking cans or any other product that we serve or sell. This is clearly a failure on our part to train...More
Slowboat in Sanlitun is probably the best pub in Beijing. It serves craft beer (i.e., it makes its own beer on the premises) and Western food (i.e. burgers, etc.). Certainly its beer is of an excellent standard - my personal favourite being number 3 (Moby)....More
Great bar with great food, but has fallen victim to the closure of hutong businesses. Bricked up due to fire regulations it may or may not open again in the future but it doesn't look hopeful.

Amazing place in a small, dark alley. As a traveller was getting scared in the dark alley, but the place is worth it. It was soo crowded that people were sitting outside, and good that they were serving you outside.
Good to visit to just...More
Do NOT confuse this location with the Sanlitun location. This location is fantastic.Great atmosphere, small, friendly intimate and helpful. The french fries are excellent. The burgers were great- once cooked. I don't drink, so I can't comment on the drinks, but it appeared to satisfy...More
