  1. Thats a fair punishment 🙂 There is nothing quiet like a stella artois in the evening though! cheers!!!

  2. Great video, thanks for sharing!

  3. maybe something wrong with the net…can’t open the vdeo…
    great web,will come to visit more often~

    1. Hi Sue, it’s a YouTube video. I guess that explains a lot 😉

  4. wanneer ga ik jullie bier nu kunnen proeven? geen goesting om nog snel eens naar guilin af te komen met een fles of twee?
    –goeie website pie!

  5. There are 2 reasons why my recent foray into home brewing kegs of beer is making me happy. If you’re not familiar with home brewing let me fill you in.  Home brewing is an art form, and is the manipulation and gathering together of all the essential items needed to make home brews.

    1. Hi Jacob,

      Thanks for sharing you insights and happy brewing!

  9. D*maned, I live in Chengdu but I’m back in Belgium now. Gonna have to drink my green ale in Gent! Enjoy a happy St. Patrick’s Day Saturday! Greetz, Patrick.

  10. Hope you had a good one, Cheers!

  11. I’m from Oregon but spent most of my time on the East coast before coming to China. Couldn’t find Rogue ale in NYC but I was tickled pink to discover I could get it here in Chengdu. I only wish they had more of their brews. The skeletons on the bottles used to glow in the dark and we kept empty bottles sitting around the house for a nice effect.

    By the way, being from Oregon, I used to brew my own beer as well so I’m delighted to have stumbled upon your site.


    1. Hi Jack,

      Thanks for sharing you nice insight about the old Rogue bottles.

      Have you tried our beer in meanwhile? Currently available in Cafe Panam(e), soon in Parador by Opera and YHA Panda Hostel. Stay tuned for more!

  12. Haha nice one!

  13. will be a pleasure for us to have you again in our restaurant as guests. I am the owner and general manager of pizza mandolin. actually a few weeks ago we had a problem with one of the machines of beers. pressure was not enough because we have worked for a short time with only one machine. Normally we have two in use. but now the problem is solved. Anyway, perhaps we can organize an event for “Chengdu beers”. what do you think? See you again in Pizza Mandolino as soon…. bye!!

    1. Hi Gaetano and thank for the insights!

      Good to hear that 2 draft beers are available again (which ones?).

      A “Chengdu Beer” party sounds good, hope we can come over soon to discuss.

      We could bring over a bottle of home brew to let you taste. Pizza Mandolino could also offer it later on – currently available in Cafe Panam(e), soon in Parador by Opera and YHA Panda Hostel (yep, we can’t handle the demand).

  14. Thanks a lot for the recommandation!~Next time when you guys come (better at night…) just find “Angelo”, who’s capable of English and definately gonna work some magic to make ur deserts for free~lol~

    1. You’re welcome Angelo and we’ll try to drop by again!

      We could bring over a bottle of home brew to let you taste. The Spot could also sell it later on – currently available in Cafe Panam(e), soon in Parador by Opera and YHA Panda Hostel (yep, we can’t handle the demand).

      Stay tuned for more!

  20. Hi Linda. Thanks for your interesting feedback, we will look into it. Cheers!

  21. Wow, nice setup! Where will it be available? We’ll be in Chengdu until December 3rd, would love to try some!

  22. I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It’s lovely worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet will probably be much more useful than ever before.

  23. Hi Mike,

    Thanks, keep us motivated!

    We’ll brew for the first time with our new equipment this weekend, so it should be available on time in a couple of bars.


  24. Where do you get your brew supplies here in Chengdu? I moved here in June and haven’t figured this out yet.

    1. Hi Dan,

      Most of the ingredients we buy in big quantity from Chinese online shops, only the hope we or friends bring from Europe.

      We’re planning to start with a Brewing Gathering at the beginning of January and also to sell brewing materials/ ingredients.

  31. Hi guys, I was at the Underground today, but I could not find this bar! I looked around very good but nothing. Can you please give me a better description? Regards, Tom

    1. Hi Tom and thanks for the comment.

      The Monk Bar is actually part of The Underground (it’s the smaller place at the right, which they didn’t really use before, but now renovated a bit). We’ve just helped you checked with one of the owners, it should have opened last week, but is postponed to this Thursday.

      Enjoy the good beer & our craft beer will be available in Parador by Opera from next week one (more venues to follow soon).

[…] Remarks: – Lot’s of Chinese know the statue (“Manneke Pis”) – they even learn the story behind it in elementary school – We are aware that we cannot establish the used English name, so the Chinese will be different – Our beer does not taste like pee (as some Chinese beers do) ^^. Feel free to try our draft Belgian Ale at Parador by Opera. […]

  38. Like it ! it’s sassy and mischievous… you sure to be noticed. I guess it could be arguable fom a marketing point of view, but it really suits your personnality and what you gonna put in the brand, so I guess it works just fine ! And different is entertaining.

    Good luck !

  39. It’s cute and impressive. I like it.

  40. Hey guys, I’ve seen Manneke Pis myself and although I think the idea behind using him is great, I think, that this might offend certain people (not me!). The other think is, that – we all know that – that we have to go to pee more when we drink beer :-))) Anyway, congratulations to the ‘co.’. Regards, Tom

  42. I like it. Aggressive marketing like Stone Brewing attracts attention and you keep that attention by filling the bottle with great beer. Look forward to trying your beers one day.

  126. This bar may be one of the best hidden treasures in Chengdu, and the staff are all really chill. It’s good for a relaxed beer with a few friends early on in the night and picks up later on turning it into a bar with a dance floor. Kind of has that Helen’s feel, but a little more ‘house party-ish’.

  131. Hey Chengdu Beer Crew,

    I’m writing from Uber (not sure if you’ve heard of us) – And we noticed that Chengdu Beer is the place to go to for the most updated events and news. We’re looking to get in touch with the people who are in the know about this city, and would be great to connect with you guys over a pint or two! Would you be free in the next few days?

    Hope to hear from you soon,

  132. Hello there. I’ll be in Chengdu for a couple of days later this month. Where is the easiest place that I can go and get to try local (especially dark) beers such as Chongqing Black and Chengdu Beer Dak Ale? (I’ll be staying at the Shangri-la).
    Thanks for your help!

  133. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I truly appreciate your efforts and I am waiting for your next write ups thank you once again.

  134. Best place in town for live concerts!
