In Search of a Good Brew in Shanghai
Collected by Christy Campbell, AFAR Local Expert
From local microbrews to Belgian imports, Shanghai has an extensive list of options.
11 Hankou Rd, WaiTan, Huangpu Qu, Shanghai Shi, China, 200000
Perched a block off the Bund, this brewery was one of Shanghai’s first. A little kitschy inside, they draw on a strong German influence and pour a decent wheat beer. A nice stop-off during your stroll down the Bund. House pours are 48 per 500mL.
15 Dongping Rd, Xuhui Qu, Shanghai Shi, China
A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to walk the modern city of Shanghai with a friend of mine. First we jumped to the Bund and walked for a couple of hours, then we picked up a metro at Nanjing Station to go hit Downtown. We were looking...

83 Fumin Rd, Jingan Qu, Shanghai Shi, China, 200085

25 Yongkang Rd, Xuhui Qu, Shanghai Shi, China, 200031
Nestled at the end of Yongkang Lu--a veritable liquid haven--if you're looking for something specific to sip, chances are good, you'll find it here. Their shelves are brimming with bottles from over 30 countries, making selection nothing short of...
150 Fenyang Rd, Xuhui Qu, Shanghai Shi, China
For a taste of Germany, settle in at one of Paulaner's three locations across the city. Grab a cold Hefeweizen and unwind from a busy day of sightseeing. Happy Hour from 4-7pm offers 2-for-1 beers, a good deal as these aren't the cheapest pours in...
