A Cosy Spot for Some Fine Ales at Beer Geek

Being a Taiwan Travel Geek who appreciates a good beer, it seemed inevitable that a visit to Beer Geek was on the cards.

Described as a micro pub, although it is rather small, I was expecting Beer Geek to be much smaller. There’s seating for around 25-30 people so there’s ample space for a fair few Beer Geeks.

Run by an expat from the USA, the pub serves a good selection of Taiwanese and international ales, with many on rotation. There’s a happy hour each night from 18:00 until 20:00, with many draught beers at a good discount, including Taiwan 18 days beer for only NT$100 per pint.

I opted for Taihu’s Dessert Berliner Weisse, a white ale that was very sour but refreshingly so. For only NT$180 it was great value too.

They also serve a limited range of comforting food, with sausages featuring heavily. One thing I do really miss in the UK is a good home-cooked plate of sausage, beans and chips. It didn’t disappoint!

The TVs are hooked into a music channel and mainly play classic rock, although they will play football games if there’s a good match on.

Aside from the darts board, there’s a small games machine in the corner with a selection of Nintendo games to play.

Beer Geek is a small but welcoming pub serving quality ales and good homely plates of grub. Size isn’t everything.
