Beernanza, one of Shanghai’s most prolific beer festivals, returns to the city once again next week featuring craft beers from around the world, as well as homebrew classes, delectable food, and banging live music, in addition to a cocktail festival.
Happening on October 12 to 14 at Okura Garden Hotel, the fifth edition will have over 150 different craft beers from countries such as China, the US, Belgium, Spain, Japan, Germany, Italy and Australia, with beer styles across the board.
Pair your beer with food from Dodu, an authentic French rotisserie chicken restaurant in Shanghai. They’re bringing their free range, hormone- and steroid-free chicken to Beernanza, as well as Iberico pork and New Zealand lamb.
The Shanghai Craft Brewers Association will conduct homebrewing classes for those interested to make their own beers at home. Led by two professional brewmasters, attendees can expect a complete demonstration of the process and a tasting of different brewing styles.
No festival is complete without entertainment, and Beernanza will host 45 different bands and DJs over three stages.
Taking place simultaneously with Beernanza is the cocktail festival Mixnanza. Some of Shanghai’s best bartenders will be shaking and stirring over 100 different types of drinks at the event, and you can sample spirits such as tequila from Jose Cuervo and Diligencias, gin from the homegrown brand Peddler’s, and rum from Kraken.
Tickets are available now from ¥70 to ¥338, which each pricing tier offering something for everyone. Scan the QR code to get yours today.
