Located at the Central Pier, this tiny stall is a popular pre-boarding pit-stop for those waiting for their ferry ride to the outlying outlands.

Beers here are noticeably cheaper than most other bars in the city and despite its diminutive size, The Beer Bay stocks a decent selection, with half-a-dozen draught options starring alongside many more types of bottled ales.

Highlights include Marston’s ginger root-infused Ginger Beard, as well as bottled brews from Scotland’s popular indie beermakers, Brew Dog.

    Okay, so where is Grouchos in this list? Often amazes me that all these articles about “Craft beer in Hong Kong” fails to mention Grouchos which has a decent following, and last time I was there, they had American and British Craft beer, like Rogue Hazelnut, Brew Dog, and a handful of nice Belgian beers. This was a while ago though, and I have heard it has changed ownership recently and gone downhill. Still, was one of the cheapest beer frequents with a wonderful view of the sea. Check it out, instead of making these “Top 10 Craft Breweries in HK” all the same every year but just the number order switched around. There are a stack of other good places in HK if you look hard enough.

    You’ve missed out the best beer I tasted in HK! Young Master Ales are phenomenal! I have had West Coast and Oregon Craft Beers from the US, Aussie and UK IPAs and Real Ales: Young Master holds its own with all of them. Highly, highly recommended!

    you cant call these top 10 places craft breweries. I mean who is actually brewing beer, real beer, not bottled beer.
    Where are the real Micro Breweries. Any place that boasts 10 or more beers is not a real craft beer place. I mean there’s one
    mentioned selling a range of 90 beers but none are brewed on site. A real craft micro brewery brewing on site will only have about four regular beers and the fifth would be alternating.
    Many of these international bottled beers being sold at these sites are just big company brewed beers which are crap and have nothing to do with proper brewing methods. People just dont know any better.
