Zapfler Brewpub, Shanghai

Ever since the crackdown and closing of the Yong Kang Lu bar street last year, people here in Shanghai have been wondering whether their favorite watering holes would be opening up in new locations. Well, yesterday we found out first hand that Zapler Brewing has a brand spanking new brewpub in the old Datong Mill underground plaza, now renovated and renamed Found 158. We popped in for the pre-pre-opening party last night to check out the new space. Here’s a look…

The taps aren’t on yet, so the beers were served out of kegs with old school pump taps…

Their Bohemian pilsner was flowing when we arrived…

When they officially open, all their beers will be available on tap, as well as a few new brews they will rotate in as they brew them on premises…

This new Zapfler Brewpub will also feature a full kitchen where they’ll be serving a menu of German favorites, like warm pretzels, schnitzel and currywurst, which we go to sample…

Zapfler has also start distilling schnapps, which they’ll be selling and serving here as well…

They expect to be open and fully operational in the next few weeks so we’ll keep you posted. Prost!!
