This silent-of-late correspondent has made his way to the Orient for another Hong Kong sojourn. Since I was here last a brewpub has opened and that was my destination for the evening. It is Hong Kong Sevens weekend, so the streets around Central are madder than normal. The pubs were packed also. Not sure if it is the hot new joint in town or just a regular Friday crush, but Tipping Point Brewing Co was as full as a Catholic school.
Not to hard see why. They’ve got a great range of tap beer coming out of a wall of taps. The Kiwi beer salesmen are doing their job as 8 Wired, Tuatara and Moa were represented along with Rogue and Mikkeller. Not advertised, but available was a wheat beer made on sight. Must be bloody new or Tipping Point hasn’t heard of Untappd because I was just the second check-in-erer. Totally potable without being a cracker. 4 Pines – send ’em a keg of the Hefeweizen to show ’em how it’s done.
The bar snacks looked awesome and sliders and wings were flying out of the kitchen at a rate of knots. There’s a few televisions around and the NRL was on one of them. This is a great addition to the Central, Soho scene and there’s not a tap of watery Carlsberg in sight. I will return for the t-shirt souvenir.
Check out Roundhouse or Globe in SoHo. Also Young Master, a hot new local brewery.
Thanks for the tip. I went to RoundHouse 3 times on this trip – absolustely fabulous. You’ll get a shout out in the post on it.
