Last year, Xian Brewery put on the first craft beer festival ever to grace Xi’an. The organizers only anticipated a couple thousand visitors, but were thrilled when over 6000 people attended. Such a success all but demands a sequel, so this year the Xi’an Craft Beer Festival is back with its perfect alchemy of the best in local music and food, and libations provided by some of the best breweries in China. It will most certainly be a weekend to remember.
So, what can you expect from this year’s festival? Dozens of breweries and restaurants, and three solid days of great music. It’s going to be a lot to take in, so think of this as your festival Cliff Notes, a quick and easy guide on what to look out for when you’re lost in the sea of vendor booths and revelers.
