Craftissimo – craft beers in TST East.

Craftissimo is a beer shop serving the Kowloon area in TST East. It’s a small retail store with a large selection and standing room for a handful of people. It’s a tough spot to wind down and drink beers.  The area is dominated by the big beer brands.  It would be relaxing to drink beers on the promenade overlooking the water but everyone is serving big name draft beers.  Craftissimo is a welcome change.  It’s location provides the beer snobs quick access away from the generic slop.

They had a very interesting beer I have yet to see in the bars.  A HK based company commissions a German based brewery to brew their beers – Nine Dragons Brewery.  The whole portfolio is below, a whopping two products.  None of the taste profiles stood out, nothing special so it was quite disappointing considering the price point. $50/bottle.

You can now add Moonzen to the list of HK breweries.  Thunder God Ale – taste profile did not stand out.
