During the 10-day festival, you’ll see some of the genre’s best artists, including multiple Grammy award-winning jazz musicians taking the stage at Xinghai Concert Hall. But before you catch an earful of jazzy tunes, Guangzhou Pearl River Beer’s craft beer brand Supra will be out in full force to give attendees a taste of some of the best local craft brews you can find.

With heavy-hitters like oatmeal stout, American IPA, saison IPA, cranberry beer, plus a specially brewed cider, Supra’s extra fresh collection of suds are all the more reason to join this annual music event.

Starting from November 22 at 8pm, you can see three-time Grammy award winner and 16-time nominee Branford Marsalis kick off the festival. He is one of the most influential classical and jazz crossover saxophonists, composers and educators around. The Branford Marsalis quartet, formed by the man himself, is recognized as one of the best jazz orchestras in the world.

And much like Jazz’s rich history, dating back over 100 years ago, Supra’s inherited ‘castle brewing’ method dates back to 17th century Europe, making Supra beer a highly sought-after beverage with great taste.

The Guangzhou Jazz Festival will continue on for 10 exhilarating and lively days of performances with musicians in town from around the world. On December 1, the festival will come to a close with a performance from Cecil McLorin Salvant – who’s won three Grammy awards in just four years. Salvant is a unique talent and holds extraordinary strength, which has enthralled the jazz world. At the age of 28, she was referred to as “the best jazz singer of the past decade” by the New York Times. Simply put, you won’t want to miss this show.

With these two great acts opening and closing the festival, along with numerous other talented musicians, this jazz fest is sure to be one to remember, especially after enjoying cool and refreshing craft beer by Supra, which is monitored by an international brewer certified by German VLB, and checked by a group led by the national wine tasting committee to ensure for quality beer and refined brewing. 

And, if you’re looking for more fun venues to drink Supra beer, here are three located in the heart of Guangzhou.
