Many craft beer joints have cropped up around Hong Kong of late, but in my mind this is the most genuine and unpretentious little pub which is why I love this place so much.

This place doesn't try too hard to "sell" to foreigners, no pretentiousness, doesn't try to be too hipster, people just feel comfortable hanging out here (which is why this place is always packed), and on any given day there's always a good mix of local/expat clientele.

Food here is mostly bar snacks and sandwiches. They stick to their guns and inject a good dose of Chinese cuisine into their food in unexpected ways, such as their fries with "golden sauce" (salted egg yolk purée - this is a traditional sauce normally tossed with prawns), and the Chinese red-skinned peanuts are used for their spicy peanuts. There's also a chicken and waffles-esque sandwich which dishes up a slice of Hong Kong style French toast in place of the waffle. All in all you won't regret any of your food orders here!

Also a couple doors down is the Knockbox coffee shop which serves up one of Hong Kong's finest coffees. These people know their coffees like the TAP people know their beers.

We spent a couple hours here enjoying the beer and food. This small restaurant has quite a few draft handles, including a bunch of local beers plus some great imports. They know what they are doing and that is nice. Service was great, staff spoke excellent English. Food was very good and fast; we had sandwiches and salads.

Nicely curated tap list, with a regularly cleaned draft system. A great place to go to get a feel for the emerging craft scene in Hong Kong. Try the Young Masters Pale/Session IPA.

Visited here on two occasions. Both times the staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. They have 16 taps plus a range of bottles. Reasonably priced and the atmosphere was decent.
