About Us


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 bottle

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

ABV: 5.5% | 25 IBU
