We're kicking things off in...

A celebration of cross-cultural collaborative brewing!

Each year, the 8x8 Brewing Project will pair 8 breweries from Greater China with 8 breweries from a chosen region around the world to brew 8 kick-ass collaboration beers. For our inaugural year we're teaming up with world-class breweries from the Pacific Northwest, one of the birthplaces of the modern craft beer movement!
The brewery pairs will be revealed soon - they'll have the whole summer to work together and prepare their collaboration brews. Then, on November 3 & 4, 2017, all 16 breweries will gather in Beijing to release their collaboration brews, pouring them alongside their own specialty beers at the 8x8 Festival.
All the brewers will be there in person so you'll have a chance to learn the stories behind what you're drinking - straight from the source!
