China based craft breweries, Great Leap Brewing, Boxing Cat Brewery and Le Ble D’or will represent the craft brewing community in China at the 2013 Dalian International Beer Festival. The festival kicks off July 26th and continues until August 12th at Xinghai Square (星海广场) and expects to attract over 80,000 guests per day.
Beijing’s Great Leap Brewing, Shanghai’s Boxing Cat Brewery and Suzhou/Taiwan’s Le Ble D’or will co-operate their own 800 square meter craft beer garden at the second largest beer festival in China. The tent will offer an assortment of bar snacks and 10 hand-crafted beers, including three beers from each brewery and The Wet Dreamer (梦 碟小麦) , a specially brewed wheat beer collaboratively made by the three breweries at Le Ble D’or’s Suzhou brewery.
Great Leap Brewing’s owner and Brewmaster Carl Setzer remarks, “The market in China is very young when it comes to craft beer culture, but what we hope to do in Dalian is to send a message that the Chinese consumer has choices when talking beer. Great Leap is honored to work with Boxing Cat Brewery and Le Ble D’or and we hope that the Chinese customer will find something amongst our collective brands that they find interesting.”
Great Leap Brewing, Boxing Cat Brewery and Le Ble D’or is looking forward to the opportunity to bring high quality craft beer to beer drinkers at the Dalian International Beer Festival.
