Now this is a pairing. The Beijing Invitational Craft Beer Festival returns for a second year from November 6-8, 2015, to be hosted at TRB Copper, Temple Restaurant Beijing (TRB)'s newly opened event space, organizers Great Leap Brewing and XIX Spirit announced Tuesday.

At least 20 Greater China and international craft breweries, along with at least five from Beijing and other parts of China, are expected to participate, including Japan's Baird Brewing, Victory of Philadelphia, Epic Brewing Company of Denver, Colorado, Revolution Brewing of Chicago, along with Moon Dog Brewing and Mountain Goat Beer of Melbourne, Australia, Great Leap said in a statement.

As with 2014's festival, the event will be presented in two-hour tasting segments, with each ticket holder receiving a 150ml tasting glass. TRB will provide beer-appropriate canapes to festival participants, and will also present a separate, five-course, beer-paired brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

Temple Restaurant Beijing has won three consecutive Restaurant of the Year Awards at the Beijinger Reader Restaurant Awards. Great Leap Brewing has won three consecutive Bar of the Year Awards at the Beijinger Bar and Club Awards.
