Young Master Ales Brewery opened its doors in December 2013 and has since established itself as a leader in the Asian craft beer scene. Right from inception, we have endeavoured to create a world-class, yet locally rooted craft beer culture in Asia. We do this by injecting original thinking, bold flavours and disciplined brewing techniques into our beers.
We are one of Asia’s highest rated and most awarded craft brewery and pride ourselves in making a wide range of exciting beer styles – from classics to avant-garde. We fully own and operate two brewing facilities in Hong Kong including our Wong Chuk Hang Brewery, that operates the largest craft beer brewhouse in Hong Kong. Our facilities house Asia’s largest wood barrel ageing program and a custom-built oak foeder for our mixed-culture fermentation program.
Over the years, we have also built a distinctive “eco-system” around our celebrated beer program. This comprises best-in-class taprooms and beer festivals facilitating localized, grassroots engagement with the rapidly growing “craft-curious” community of consumers in Asia. We self-distribute our beers, fully cold-chained in Hong Kong, Mainland China and Singapore. In addition, we selectively send our beers to few other markets through distributors who are as fastidious as us. You will also find our team pouring at the geekiest beer events all over the world.
Since Young Master began operations, we have earned the support of the most discerning clients in Hong Kong including iconic hotels like Mandarin Oriental, Four Seasons, Shangri-La and others; prestigious private clubs; craft beer specialist bars and some of the trendiest restaurants and bars in town. Our bottled beers are on sale at specialist stores and upscale supermarkets that carefully curate their lists.
All of this is made possible by our incredible team. Our group employs the largest number of Cicerone certified professionals and BJCP certified beer judges in Asia. Our brewing team has a long tradition of winning top awards at local homebrewing competitions before they decided to go professional on our platform.
