OUR STORY 

Drinking Buddies started simply because we missed drinking our favourite craft beers in China.

We started the company in mid 2016 when craft beer was still in its early days in China. There were only a handful of local microbreweries and imports were primarily arriving from large-scale US breweries.

There was a lack of variety, a lack of availability, and a lack of accessibility.

 So, we decided to change it ourselves.

We began importing some of our hometown favourites and then we continued to import, adding other exciting places and breweries around the world to our portfolio.

Our goal has always been to remove the distance between the artisans and drinkers: to champion and cultivate curiosity and discovery with beer, to help the local market discover the world through one-of-a-kind beers, to tease the palate and challenge the local norm, and to make the China market more accessible to the smaller producers.

You won’t find anything commercial in our portfolio. We’re about the little guys, the stories behind the breweries, the towns and the artists behind the beer. It’s all about the ingredients, the people and the passion. After all, that’s what makes a great beer.

啤友汇的成立初衷很简单, 不要一再的错过那些令人垂涎的精酿啤酒。

2016年年中,公司成立时,精酿啤酒在中国还处于起步阶段。当地只有少数几家小型啤酒厂,而且,进口啤酒也主要来自美国大型啤酒厂。

品种匮乏、渠道短缺、货源紧俏。 

所以,我们决定自己来改变这一状况。

最初,我们进口一些在酒厂本地非常受欢迎的啤酒,筛选出适合国内市场的,并继续引进,同时甄选并增加世界各地其他令人兴奋的品牌及产品。 

我们的目标一直是拉近匠人与消费者之间的距离: 提倡和培养好奇心并不断挖掘高品质啤酒, 挑战国人对啤酒的传统刻板印象,丰富您的味蕾,同时帮助世界各地小而精的精酿酒厂进入中国市场。

我们的合作伙伴中没有商业酒厂 。我们关注的是那些小众匠人与其酒厂背后的故事,以及啤酒背后的小镇文化与酿酒师。对啤酒而言,所有的一切都离不开成分,人与激情。毕竟,这才是好啤酒的品质保证。
