Details

The May 13th meeting of the BHS will be at Beer All with proprietor Dongzi (东子). Beer All is in the Jianwai Soho West area just South West of the Guomao Bridge. The Beer Styles for May are Maibock, Kolsch and Alt.

Jianhai SoHo is just one big city of towers in the country of Beijing. There are many shops and restaurants so you might choose to arrive quite early to roam around.

The meetup map above is correct. Driving / parking directions from the Guomao bridge are here, http://goo.gl/maps/OvrLK. Walking directions from the nearest line 1 station, Yong'Anli - exit C, are here, http://goo.gl/maps/dGMdj . Beer All is on the B1 level (basement 1) at the Southeast corner of SOHO Building 17. Go down the first set of outside stairs just East of the Southeast corner of the building.

More on the May beer styles. BearAdvocate Style links follow:

o Maibock / Hellesbock, http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/style/33/

o Kolsch, http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/style/85/

o Altbier, http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/style/86/

Note the position of these styles on this beer style scatter plot, http://files.meetup.com/7049692/201405_may_beer_style_plot_01.pdf . The Miabock / Helles Bock and Kolsch styles are similar. The Altbier is far South of the two. A bimodal distribution in a population of three (sweeter vs bitter). A Biere de Garde or Flanders Brown are examples of beer styles that are the furthest and equally different styles. Anti May styles if you will.

As for food, a favorite of Dongzi and his customers is from a Korean restaurant The 79 House. A menu is here, http://files.meetup.com/7049692/201405_meetup_korean_menu.pdf . There is also food next door including a 35 kuai sausage plate and a 90 kuai stake plate.

For a trip back to last month, the April Beer Minutes Plus is here, http://files.meetup.com/7049692/20140418_bmp.pdf .
