Hong Kong, SAR, China – Hong Kong Beer is one of the few beers brewed locally in Hong Kong. Whenever I travel, I make a personal goal of myself to try as many locally produced beers of the country I am visiting. In Hong Kong there are few locally produced micro-brews, but one of them is Hong Kong Beer. I have only been able to find this beer at two restaurants in SOHO.
Hong Kong Beer is a lager and is brewed by the Hong Kong Beer Company. It features a strong bitter flavor with an amber color. It is also 4.7% alcohol by volume. I highly recommend this beer as it is refreshing. I also recommend that this beer be served in a glass and cold. One of the locations that I have found it is as Mostaccioli Brothers (Mo’s Bros) restaurant in SOHO. Hong Kong Beer is sold for 19 HKD (approximately $2.38 USD) at Mo’s Bros.
SOHO, CENTRAL, Hong Kong, SAR, China – Nestled underneath and around the mid-level escalators in Central, Hong Kong is SOHO. This escalator is the largest outdoor escalator in the world. SOHO, which stands for South of Hollywood, is a nightlife district, which features restaurants with eclectic cuisines from around the world. This place is comprised of mainly two streets filled with restaurants, however, there are also many side streets that also house a few clubs. I have eaten here numerous times and I can honestly say that any place you eat here will taste amazing. The restaurants here are moderately expensive but well worth the price.
SOHO also has a great selection of pubs, each with a variety of different beer selections. It is not abnormal to see restaurants sharing beers or liquor with one another. Starting at 3PM and occasionally earlier, SOHO experiences happy hour, which can involve buy one get one free drinks or half priced drinks. SOHO is a great area to do a pub crawl and to experience various types of beers.
