The craft beer scene in Shenzhen has never been brighter, rising out of nothing just a few short years ago. Here are the best five places to enjoy locally made craft beer in the city (in no particular order).
Craft Head is a community bar and also an impressively varied tap house run by a dedicated New Zealand brewer. Not only do they keep a healthy amount of homemade beer on tap, they also have ciders and other libations, plus an expanding food menu. In addition to their great brews, they’ve also become a destination for live music. If you’re in Futian, there’s no better choice for a locally made craft beer, and hardly a bar with a better atmosphere.

The oldest small batch craft brewery in Shenzhen finally comes out of the shadows to bring you the nectar of the gods. Peko Brewing Co. is named after Peko, the ancient Estonian and Finnish god of crops, especially barley and brewing. We pay tribute to Peko daily and opened up our current location in tribute to Peko to give the ever increasing number of people in Shenzhen who appreciate good beer a place they could come and partake of the nectar of the gods and in doing so pay homage in the house of Peko. They have up to 12 taps flowing all the time to offer beers and cider at reasonable prices. Come on by for their daily “Hoppy Hour” that lasts until 8pm.
Taps Brewpub, located next to Haiyue Station, is Shenzhen's largest craft beer brew pub. All beers are brewed with imported ingredients, including boutique grains malted in New Zealand. Their beers are unfiltered, unpasteurized and incredibly fresh. Plus they have a great selection of food to accompany their signature craft brews. The word quality gets thrown around a lot, but Taps really deserves the title.
