After having successfully hosted the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Beijing Invitational Craft Beer Festival’s in November 2014, February 2016, and March 2017, Great Leap Brewing is proud to announce the fourth installment of the BICBF, which will take place at TRB Copper from March 23-25, 2018.

The festival will continue to be a door ticketed event where guests can meet the brand creators and brewmasters, and will be provided a 150ml branded glass for sampling free-flow beers as well as taste the exclusively paired canapés provided by TRB during five different drinking sessions over the course of the weekend. Each session will be limited to 300 people which will give guests plenty of time and space to sample beers from a variety of international breweries and get valuable insight from the visiting brewers about their different beers. This year, each session is only 200rmb per session, so you don’t want to miss this!

An especially designed, sit-down 5-course brunch paired with limited edition beers unique from those presented at the festival will also be available on Sunday, March 25th for 488rmb.
