LOCAL CRAFT BEER BREWERY TOUR IN HONG KONG
BREWERIES AND NIBBLES WALKING TOUR
GREAT FOR A BOOZY SATURDAY AFTERNOON ACTIVITY
This is Hong Kong’s first and original Local Craft Beer Brewery Tour! Drink like an on-trend local. Craft beer has exploded onto the scene of Hong Kong these past 3 years so it’s a great time for your taste buds to try some local brews. Though there is a lot of beer drinking to be done, but we will also be learning about each of the local breweries & what beer they’re known for. The venues that we will be visiting have especially been curated to be different in terms of size and personality, from smaller family-run breweries, to one of Hong Kong’s biggest craft beer breweries, to even a homebrew supplier/bottle shop or a brewpub, in order to give you an overall flavour of the Hong Kong craft beer scene.
In the 3.5 hours, we’ll be visiting 3 places that brew beer & you’ll be able to taste at least 14 different craft beers, each around 100ml in size. Our venues are different on each tour depending on the breweries’ availability, etc. & the schedule is only confirmed about 1 week prior to the tour. This Local Craft Beer Brewery Tour is designed for exploration of the craft beer scene in Hong Kong and you’ll be able to get insider tips, to sample limited editions or one-off brews, VIP & behind the scenes access into the breweries, to meet the owners or brewmasters and their journey & story behind the beers, and to learn about the grain to glass beer process.
* Please see our Fishballs’ Food Adventurous Scale to see why this tour has been rated a 1 rating.

FISHBALLS’ FOOD ADVENTUROUS SCALE
THIS TOUR HAS A 1 RATING
The Local Craft Beer Brewery tour has been rated a 1 on our Fishballs’ Food Adventurous Scale due to the fact that… well, you’ll just be drinking a whole lot of craft beer during the 3.5 hours.
Want a food pairing? Take our Guided Dim Sum Lunch Food Tour that runs right before this tour for a nice combo. A great way to spend your Saturday afternoon with dim sum & craft beer, where traditional eats meets modern brews.
THE FINER DETAILS OF THE BREWERY TOUR
There is no exact address; it’s just the Wong Chuk Hang MTR station, Exit A. Meet on the footbridge above. Make sure it’s Exit A & not B as they’re on the same street. Please show your taxi driver the Chinese address:
黃竹坑港鐵站 . 香葉道, A出口. 巴士站.
Always get a receipt as it has the taxi’s info.
The most convenient way. Wong Chuk Hang MTR station is just 20 mins by MTR from Central. Wong Chuk Hang is located on the South Island (lime) line. From the Admiralty MTR station, accessible by both the Tsuen Wan (red) line & the Hong Kong Island (blue) line, transfer to the South Island (lime) line, & it’s 3 stops to Wong Chuk Hang.
Wong Chuk Hang is easily accessible by minibuses (the green or the red variety) & buses. We do feel that unless you are a seasoned pro, it’s probably easiest to take the MTR, which is the way we recommend getting to Wong Chuk Hang. On the ground traffic in Hong Kong is a bit of a hit-or-miss.

TOP RATED FOOD TOUR IN HONG KONG
This tour was so much fun. Our guide took us to local places that we would not have tried or known about. The tour was a great mix of food and cultural information and Whampoa was a lovely neighbourhood to do this in! Our guide was a fantastic guide, was very helpful, chatty and answered all of our additional questions. She’s a hit with the locals as well – I loved to see her bantering with them all.
Would definitely recommend this tour, get yourself to Whampoa with Humid with a Chance of Fishballs!
FUN & KNOWLEDGEABLE ENGLISH SPEAKING GUIDES!
If you love food and you want to get off the well-worn tourist trails, then Humid with a Chance of Fishballs should be your first choice. My husband had his ‘villains hit’ by one of the infamous ‘cursing grannies’, before we boarded a tram and travelled to our Sampan boat for delicious shellfish, including the re-nowed ‘Typhoon Shelter Crab’. The next day our guide guided us to one of the oldest dim sum restaurants in town, taught us how to get a seat – no, really, you’ve never done this before, I promise you! No easy feat, I can assure you!
I can highly recommend Humid With a Chance of Fishballs!
UNIQUE & AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCES!
After a quick introduction we turned a few corners and found ourselves in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the back alleys of Hong Kong. Amidst a myriad of different food options she seems to be able to find the ones that offer that little bit extra.
Our guide seemed to have a genuinely great rapport with the hawkers and food stall owners we visited. If you’re looking for a genuine, authentic urban experience, we can definitely recommend going on this food tour. All we suggest is you bring an open mind and a healthy appetite; there’s going to be plenty of food and some of it will have you talking about it till late in the evening.
HAVE A BEER, BECAUSE IT’S HAPPY HOUR SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD…
