Tiny shop with local beer, craft spirits and wine
Local beer, local flavors
Hong Kong is in the midst of a craft beer revolution with nearly 20 local breweries set up in the last few years. The Tramline Liquor Co. is a good place to explore the flavours of local beer. No bigger than a walk-in closet, the shop manages to squeeze in products by Moonzen Brewery, Young Master Ales, Black Kite and other Hong Kong breweries making beer with ingredients like tea, kumquats and salted lime – along with the usual pale ales and IPAs you would expect from any good brewery.
Hong Kong doesn’t have any tax on beer or wine, so it’s easy to find great examples of each from the around the world. If local products aren’t to your fancy, stock up on fresh arrivals from Australia, the US, Europe and beyond. There is an impressive selection of artisanal spirits, too, including small-batch cachaça from Brazil and unique gin from England. The staff are well versed in all things booze-related so don’t be afraid to ask them for suggestions.
Craft beer revolution
Looking for a place to linger over a pint of fresh local beer? Kennedy Town has a growing number of options. Little Creatures Brewing adds a few Hong Kong-brewed options to a list of popular Australian beers, while Craft Brew & Co. has a rotating selection of local tipples on tap.
