How to Get There

Depending on your level of hangover on Saturday morning, there’s a range of ways to get yourself to the fest. For the lazy or busy folks out there, grabbing a Didi will get you from central Jing’an to Lujiazui Harbour City in about 15 minutes. 

If you decide to go the Metro route, take Line 2 and get out at Lujiazui Station Exit 2, where you will find buses running from the station to the fest every 120 minutes. 

If you’re up for some socializing, buses will be running from Liquid Laundry, Boxing Cat Sinan and Boxing Cat Yongfu at 2pm, 4pm and 6pm. 

Feeling up for a rather ridiculous adventure instead? Grab a boat from Puxi dock Gongping Lu to Pudong dock Tai Dong Lu, or Puxi dock Fuxing Dong Lu to Pudong dock Yangjia Du, and then walk on over to the festival grounds.

Moreover, this year’s Shanghai Craft Beer Festival has partnered with Didi to make your travels easier and safer. 

Now, get yourself out of bed and head over to the longest running and original China craft beer fest before the good stuff runs dry!
