The afternoon of August 17 is going to be a long one, as the Beijinger 2014 Reader Bar & Club Awards two-time Bar of the Year Great Leap Brewing will host the next installment of their The Chef & The Brewer series from 1-4.30pm, featuring a new chef: EAST Hotel Beijing's Executive Chef Rob Cunningham.

The menu will feature rib-eye steaks (450g) and half-lobsters, along with free-flow 120ml beer samplers, starters, sides, and dessert, as part of a three-course meal, all served at Great Leap's Xinyuan Lu brewpub. The brewer, of course, will be Great Leap's own brewmaster Carl Setzer.

Cunningham recently served X-Men: Days of Future Passed stars Hugh Jackman and Peter Dinklage, when the two were in town for that film's China premiere at Indigo.

Only 50 seats are available, for RMB 500 each, inclusive of all of the above (sorry, no Jackman or Dinklage this time). To make a reservation, click here.
