2012 Oct 11 Malty Dog Opens on Beiluogu Xiang
The latest player in the Beijing suds game is Malty Dog Bar & Brewery. They'll start tapping the kegs and popping open the bottles at their opening party this Friday, October 12.
The man behind this latest Beiluogu Xiang project is Jeff Ji of Mai Bar, which is situated at the top of the same lane. In this new venue, he's trading in the cocktails and shakers for beers and brewing equipment
If the name didn't already make it clear, this bar will focus on all things malted. Fridges are stocked with a wide range of imported beers, a number Jeff hopes will eventually top a hundred. Taps at the bar will dispense local craft ales brewed by Jeff and other Beijing brewers. Some of Jeff's own beers will include a Belgium Wheat, a honey lemon basil ale, an espresso stout and a spiced ale called "Christmas in July." Rounding out the tipple choices are a shelf of single malt scotch and bourbons.
Malty Dog Bar & Brewery. Tue-Fri 6pm-midnight Sat-Sun 1pm-midnight. 51 Beiluogu Xiang, Dongcheng District (no tel) 东城区北锣鼓巷51号
