Craft Beer Market in Mainland 國內的手工啤酒市場

Chinese has a long history of drinking while the word alcohol has been mentioned in "the book of odes and hymns" over twenty times and other classics as well. Most people in ancient times drink rice wine and yellow wine, but today Chinese drink a wide range of alcohol and often drink accompany with meal. In contrary, the foreigners like to drink neat in the bar especially beer. In the Mainland, the potential of craft beer is huge particularly in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen and other first-tier cities. There is still room for further development. In my opinion, craft beer is going to be more prevalent than wine does. Here are some of my suggested reasons:


The fast moving craft beer market in Singapore 新加坡手工啤酒市場的快速增長

I have a good impression on Singapore - there is no cold winter, the city is simple and modern, language of communication is convenient that Cantonese, English, and even Mandarin works. There is no obvious race discrimination comparing to most of Western countries. As for the craft beer, it is more popular than in Hong Kong despite it started later.


How to make a beer 如何釀製啤酒

After the brewer decides the designated style and formula, the saccharification process begins. I have mentioned before the initiation of single step complex fermentation - the enzymes convert the carbohydrates and proteins into sugar and amino acids in the malt.


What beer style will be prevalent in 2017? 2017將流行什麼啤酒風格?

Last issue I talked about the craft beer trend in upcoming 2017, this time I would like to talk about those popular beer styles. To be honest, it is really impossible to predict the future, but from my extensive experience of being beer judge, I keep constant contact with all those beer geeks, brewers and trade inside or outside the industry.
