This is the company’s first branch outside of its store in Central, which houses 300 different beers.

According to the company, this is the first bottleshop in Hong Kong to offer 100% temperature controlled cellaring for beers, which are stored at three different temperatures ranging from 4C to 15C to ensure “optimal drinking experience” for customers.

“The demand for craft beer is growing in Hong Kong. Some of the customers living on Kowloon side had a hard time finding a good collection of beers, and we are here to cater to that,” Arielle Ng of HK Brewcraft told dbHK.

The popular one-gallon homebrew kit and pre-packed ingredients, designed specifically for Hong Kong’s space constrained apartments, are also available in store, the company said.

Other than selection of beers and homebrewing gadgets, HK Brewcraft TST is also the hub for the most exciting beer events in Kowloon. It started by co-hosting the recent Mikkeller Running Club event in June and then hosted the new seasonal launch for the rising star Brewlander & Co. from Singapore.

A new educational tasting series called ‘Beers @ Hillwood’ will be held each month, where a star guest such as head brewers, brew pub managers, BJCP top scoring judges from the industry will share his/her favorite beers with the customers.

Hong Kong’s craft beer scene is burgeoning. Last year, the city’s beer festival Beertopia attracted more than 14,000 beer lovers with 14 local breweries showcasing their brews along side with breweries around the world. It was the biggest turnout yet for the festival since its inception in 2012.
