When we brewed the first batch of Jing-A back in 2012, we had a couple 20 liter buckets, a handful of ingredients and a dream to brew the best possible beer in China. It’s been an incredible journey since then, and we’re proud of the small part we’ve played in helping to kick off the…
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.

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
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.
*Bronze – Asia Beer Cup 2014 & 2015
*Bronze – International Beer Cup 2016
A Belgian Wit, Beijing-style. Pours hazy yellow with plenty of fluffy white head and bright aromas of mandarin orange and coriander seed. On the palate, the mild sweetness of the light grains blend with notes of earthy spice and fresh citrus, ending with a zesty dry finish.
Worker’s Pale Ale
A full-flavored American Pale Ale for the Beijing working man (or woman). Pronounced notes of grapefruit and pine resin balance with moderate hop bitterness and a backbone of pale and specialty malts.

Koji Red Ale
An experimental ale brewed with red koji rice, an ingredient traditionally used in the production of Chinese Huangjiu and Japanese Sake. 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.
The Airpocalypse Double IPA
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
Tuhao Gold Pils
Bling-bling in a bottle! Our Bohemian pils showcases the beautiful interplay between lightly toasted malts, spizy Saaz and juicy New World hops. Pours brilliant gold in the glass with balanced bitterness and a clean, refreshing finish.
