Taiwan now has many local breweries producing some fine craft ales. Some have established their own tap rooms, while there are many bars and restaurants serving them. These are the best places to try some international or local craft ales.
Redpoint Brewing Co. Taproom
With all beer brewed locally in Taoyuan, Redpoint recently opened their first taproom in Taipei for their excellent beers. They also serve ales from other breweries including 23, 55th Street and Taihu, and have some great happy hour deals too. The food at Redpoint is also top notch.
Taihu Craft Beer Tasting Room
Taihu is one of the most prolific craft ale creators in Taipei, and have three taprooms in the city to promote their fine drinks. The best of these is the Taihu Craft Beer Tasting Room, found close to the Zhongxiao Fuxing MRT. They have over 20 different ales, and some great burger and bar food to go with them.
Primarily a music venue, Revolver also boasts a good selection of craft ales, including Scotland’s Brewdog and Taiwan’s own Taihu and 23. Revolver also have the best happy hour deals in Taipei, including draft craft ale for only NT$150.
Tap Bistro Zhangmen
Zhangmen is Taiwanese brewery established in 2014 in the Xizhi District of New Taipei City. They’ve since opened several tap rooms in Taiwan and Hong Kong, with three found within Taipei. The best of these is Tap Bistro Zhangmen, located within the Xinyi Shopping District on top of the Breeze Songgao mall, with plenty of outdoor seating offering views of Taipei 101. They serve a range of ales including IPAs, stouts and blonde ales. The bar can be difficult to find however – see my post for details.
23 brewery have a couple of nice tap rooms in Taipei, the best of which is close to the Shida Night Market. Serving mainly ales from their own brewery, there are many exotically named and tasting beers to try here.
