About Us

OUR STORY

Founded in Beijing by long-time friends Kris and Alex, 京A is a brewery in constant motion. We're obsessed with hunting down rare ingredients and unexpected flavors to brew our beers, ranging from twists on classic styles to curious experiments and inspiring collaborations with breweries from around the world.
Our goal is to make beer we’re damn proud of – beer that pushes the envelope, celebrates its roots, and changes perceptions of Chinese brewing worldwide.

Our Beer

We brew with the best local and imported ingredients to make full-flavored, bold, and creative beers that are free of adjuncts and artificial preservatives.

We currently have several core beers that we brew year-round, and many seasonal beers that each year we look forward to brewing, and a long history of one-off and collaboration beers. We love experimenting, blurring the lines, and combining new flavors for whimsical beers in all sorts of styles!

Flying Fist IPA

ABV: 6.5% | 55 IBU

A double dose of Citra and Simcoe hops adds intense tropical notes to this hophead’s delight. *Bronze Medal - Asia Beer Cup 2014/2015, International Beer Cup 2016

Our flagship American IPA is abundantly dry-hopped for a burst of tropical fruit, fresh pine, and zesty citrus. A favorite among hop-heads, the Flying Fist’s medium bitterness and crisp finish make it our go-to IPA for all occasions.

koji-red-ale-600x600

Koji Red Ale

ABV: 5.5% | 25 IBU

An experimental ale made with Koji sake rice, wasabi root and ginger. The result is a blushing red color, a fruity aroma, and barrel-like notes.

The addition of koji rice to the mash imparts a blushing red color and woody, barrel-like notes. Subtle additions of wasabi root, ginger, and moderate bitterness from earthy and herbal hops round out the palate of this unique and complex beer.

Our unfiltered tribute to the city we know and love and to the people who, whether it’s a blue-sky day or a no-sky day, make it so great. A mix of specialty malts lends a rich mouthfeel that helps carry dank flavors of pine resin, grapefruit, and peach, closing out with a dry finish.
*Gold – International Beer Cup 2017
