CraftConAsia: Taiwan Craft Beer Festival

๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ผ Taiwan isn’t one of the first countries that comes to mind when one thinks of craft beer in Asia.

But the country, like many others in the region, is host to a thriving domestic craft brewing scene. Since the Taiwanese government deregulated the craft beer industry in 2002, the island nation has experienced a “craft beer renaissance”.

Some notable Taiwanese craft brewers like Taihu, Jim & Dad’s and Redpoint (among others) have built a broader reputation beyond the island’s shores.

Which is why the team at Beer Asia jumped at the chance to support the country’s largest craft beer festival: CraftConAsia!

The beer festival is one of Asia’s largest: 40 different breweries, 300+ local and imported craft beers, and a fleet of food trucks!

We’re excited to be a supporter of such an awesome celebration of craft beer in Asia, particularly in a country which doesn’t get enough coverage regionally.

CraftConAsia is taking place on Saturday November 23 in Taipei. Get on down if you’re based in Taiwan or can find a cheap flight over!

Early bird tickets are still available online: https://www.accupass.com/event/1907300809451575502498 for 299 NT. You can also buy tickets at the door, but it will be a bit more expensive (350 NT).
