Looking for a fine microbrew and authentic Bavarian cuisine in Tianjin? Try Drei Kronen 1308 near Jinwan Plaza on the Haihe River across from the Tianjin Train Station.


They serve up four kinds of their own micro-brewed beer, made in-house using the exact recipe, ingredients and process supplied by their German founder, and all supervised by a German brewmaster. There is a traditional Wheat Beer, Lager, Dark Beer, and a Seasonal Beer. They are all delicious, and just what you would expect from an authentic German beer hall. It鈥檚 served in large half litre glasses with small sizes also available. Of course, as with any great German beer, you鈥檙e going to want the large one.


Their seasonal beers are brewed fresh about every two weeks. After they sell out, they brew a new one. We tried the fantastic Oktoberfest brew: flavourful, sweet, and with fragrant hints of autumn packed inside a 0.5 litre glass. Come and get some while it鈥檚 available!

Serving dishes from all over Germany, their specialties are roasted Bavarian dishes from the south of the country.


We started with a basket of bread and pretzels to whet our appetite, followed by a salad, and then what we鈥檇 all been waiting for: sausages and beer. They have the most popular varieties of German sausages, served with pork knuckle and leberkase (similar to a meatloaf). On the side there were plenty of mashed potatoes and sauerkraut. The food is ideal for giving you the ability to down glasses of cold beer.


To maintain consistency and guarantee authenticity, their chefs are all trained by a German master chef responsible for all their locations in China. Ingredients are sourced from a mix of domestic and German suppliers that guarantee purity and quality. Having been open for six years already, it鈥檚 clear they know what they鈥檙e doing, and have it down to an art and a science.


The 1308 represents the year that Bavarian brewers began crafting their beers. Being an authentic Bavarian brewery with 700 years of history, you can be sure that this is one of the best places to get a beer east of Munich. This was the first microbrewery in Tianjin, and the design and layout makes you feel like you鈥檙e in Germany. Long bench-like tables, blue and white checkered table cloths, an outdoor beer garden that鈥檚 open in the warm seasons, and authentic wood paneling and decorations all add to the effect.


Besides being a great place for a beer and dinner, Drei Kronen 1308 is a great place to hold a party. They have three floors and a patio with plenty of space for any occasion. Many German and foreign companies and organisations in Tianjin such as the German Chamber of Commerce and EU Chamber of Commerce regularly hold social events here. Germans feel at home, and locals and foreigners alike feel they have a third living space in their life to enjoy their time between work and home. The great beer, food, scenery and people all come together to make this one of the jewels of Tianjin.
