Located in the Xiqing Development Zone, Tianjin, Great Leap Brewing’s large-scale production brewery is 175,000 square meters of space with a potential 500,000hL per annum capacity, making it one of the largest craft breweries in Asia. The highly revered German company – Krones Engineering – built all of the brewing equipment, including the canning line and keg-filling line (in conjunction with Petainer).
As our first batch of cans, we have selected four beers that represent the core values of the GLB brewing philosophy. The Honey Ma Gold, Silver Needle White Ale, Edmund Backhouse Pilsner and Little General IPA all showcase local ingredients, ranging from Sichuan peppercorns and local honey in the Honey Ma Gold, to silver needle tea, to Chinese hops in the Little General IPA and Edmund Backhouse Pilsner. Our brewing team has taken these Chinese ingredients and incorporated them into world-class brews, now packaged to be sent all around the globe. All four of these beers are available in 330ml cans, and the Honey Ma Gold, Edmund Backhouse Pilsner, and Little General IPA are all available in 500ml cans.
