Mifan or Mafan: Crafters

Craft beer purveyor Crafters, after garnering local recognition by rotating its home-brewed beers on the taps of various local bars, recently moved into its first permanent home in the wilds of east Beijing. Perched above WavorHouse, an indoor surfing center, Crafters’ own brewery is styled after a beach bar, with surfboards and a shark hanging from the ceiling. 

We are able to simultaneously gaze upon the menu and brave souls attempting to surf next door, thanks to a window. We play with the idea of briefly joining in, but decide we don’t have enough liquid courage just yet. The brews are solid (RMB35-45), but we already know that, so we experiment with the food menu. 

We order the tasty chicken burger (RMB45), with grilled mushrooms, jalapenos and cheddar cheese, and the Tiny Gangster burger (RMB65), featuring a twangy sauce made from their Tiny Gangster Pale Ale. Crafters also has you covered for poutine, with offerings like the Junkie Poutine (RMB55), slathered with mushrooms and onions. Wash it down with their signature brews like the TransAtlantic IPA (RMB45) and enjoy the show down below.
