Revisiting 8×8 2017 / 再续八乘八!

Last weekend we had the pleasure of hosting 16 breweries from Greater China and the Pacific Northwest at the inaugural 8×8 China Brewing Project, here in Beijing at the UCCA Pavilion in 798! Over 1600 people turned up over the two days to taste the dozens of great beers that were pouring… especially the 8 all-new collaboration brews prepared specifically for 8×8!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who came!

To help fuel us through the festival, we had delicious food from Hatchery’s Common Burger, Palms L.A. Kitchen & Bar, Pak Pak & SuSu, and BBQ from 京A Brewpub Xingfucun. We also want to give a shout out to DJ Jay 1,2 and XXX for rocking the party all weekend, and to Needles N’ Pins Studio and all the brave souls who got inked with a permanent memory of 8×8!

We can’t wait for the next 8×8 Brewing Project in 2018 – we’ll be switching from the Pacific Northwest to a new partner region… it could be anywhere around the world where there’s great beer!

If you missed out on this year’s event, or simply want to get more of your favorite beers that you tried the festival, keep an eye on the guest beer taps at both 京A locations over the next few weeks…

We also plan to revisit all 8 collaboration brews with an event at 京A Xingfucun later this month, so look out for the details in next week’s WeChat blast!

上周末,我们终于有幸将来自大中华和北美地区的十六家酒厂邀请到北京798尤伦斯当代艺术中心,参与首届“八乘八”合酿计划啤酒节。两天内超过1600人次入场畅饮了百余款中外品质精酿作品,其中八款“八乘八”专属合酿酒款备受欢迎……

在此,京A团队向所有参与本次活动的酒友、媒体朋友以及合作伙伴们表示感谢!

Hatchery 的新概念美食“共享堡”、 Palms L.A. 、喜悦泰&苏苏和京A幸福村也用美食给本次活动锦上添花!还有持续输出音乐原动力的 DJ Jay 1,2 和 XXX、将“八乘八”记忆永久留存的 “针与针”纹身工作室,大家都辛苦啦!

虽然2017“八乘八”合酿计划刚刚落下帷幕,但我们已经开始构思2018了。下一次合酿计划我们将选择新的国外精酿区域,很有可能就是你最中意的热门地区!

如果你不小心错过了上周的啤酒节,不必惋惜了,在接下来的一段时间内,我们将在京A两家门店内以客啤形式供应“八乘八”的中外酒款,而且在十一月底,一场八款“八乘八”合酿酒头接管派对也不容错过!请持续关注京A公众号了解详情吧!

Nov 25th: 8×8 Afterflow 2017

If you weren’t able to make it to the 8×8 festival earlier this month, or you did go and you love the beers so much that you’re ready for another round, we’ve got great news for you: the 8×8 Afterflow!

This weekend, on Saturday Nov. 25th, 京A Brewpub Xingfucun will pour all eight of the collaborations brewed for the 2017 edition of the 8×8 Brewing Project. You’ll get an 8×8 taster glass and a pour of each of the eight beers for just RMB 100. We’ll be opening the doors early at 12PM for lunch and kicking Afterflow off at 2, so bring a friend and enjoy an afternoon session with the 8×8 collab beers. It’s the last time they’ll all be available in one place!

Here’s a reminder of what the 8 pairs of breweries from Greater China and the Pacific Northwest brewed up for us:

8×8: The Last Keg 2017

This Saturday we’re partnering with Peiping Machine Taphouse at their new location in Gongti where we’re taking over 30 taps for the night. Enjoy the last remaining kegs of a wide variety of beers from the 8×8 festival, all priced at RMB 50/pint – and if you buy 4 or more you’ll get an 8×8 glass to take home!

“八乘八”虽然已经结束,但是人们对它的热度依然不减,现场130多款啤酒饮爆全场,很多人依然对“八乘八”念念不忘。

在“八乘八”啤酒节,只有购买了全场四时段通票才有可能尝遍全部所有啤酒,我们知道很多朋友都没有喝得尽兴,他们依然有很多美酒没能品尝到。

为了弥补大家对“八乘八”的遗憾,京A与北平机器合作,于12月9日,就在本周六,在北平机器工体店,大家将再次喝到“八乘八”啤酒节的啤酒,而所有参加此次活动的八乘八真的是国内仅此一桶,过了这个村儿就没这个店儿了。

“八乘八”Last Keg活动中,所有美酒均只有一桶,且国内仅这一桶,所以说先到先得,喝完就没!

12月9日,在北平机器工体店,从下午4点开始,一直到次日凌晨2点,只需50元人民币即可购买一杯“八乘八”啤酒节的啤酒,而购买4杯的话,即可获赠一个“八乘八”啤酒节酒杯作为纪念品。

12月9日,到北京机器工体店,一起来弥补你的“八乘八”遗憾吧。
