It buzzes in the small courtyard, everyone is enjoying their Friday evenings while we drink our first Peking beer.
This Hutong in Peking is mesmerizing but far from authentic. Big streets are filled with aggressive shouting stores that all want to catch the tourists into buying stuff they don’t need. But if you walk towards the maze of small streets, if you go outside the known streets and into the small, dark alleys you will find some authentic, magical places.
Great Leap Brewery’s smallest location can be found in the middle of this maze of alleys. You hear the buzzing sound of happy people talking in the courtyard from far away and with the noise growing louder you know you get closer.
Drink a special brewed beer while talking to locals with your hands and feet. It’s the start of a great evening!
