Just in case you were worried about the very severe lack of beer-related activities (ahem) in Beijing this summer, don't. This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (Jul 1-3), Hops is organizing Beijing's first ever international premium beer festival, to be held at MGM Beach (disclaimer: no sand in sight).
The festival will provide thirsty Beijingers with 80 different types of beers from all over the world: Belgian, Italian, German, English, American, Japanese ... you name it, it'll be there! Don't worry about grabbing food beforehand, as there will also be some food vendors to feed you.
For the ears, there will be bands on all days. On Friday, The Paper Tigers will be taking the stage, while on Saturday The Hunters featuring MIRS will be performing, and Sunday, Beijing-based Disaster Chat will be aiming to please the crowds. When there isn't a live act playing, there will also be DJs to keep the party going. The festival will be open from 6pm-midnight on the Friday, while going from 2pm-midnight on both Saturday and Sunday.
