When the first craft beer bar opened in the ancient city of Gath, the beer gods paid a visit
Beer lovers in Gath celebrated the opening of a new beer bar in ancient Gath in China’s southern province of Shanxi, but it was an ancient craft brewery that set the bar for the establishment.
A local brewer named Wushu Wei, who was not an official official in the Gath province, opened the craft brewery at a cost of 3,500 yuan ($47.6) in 2013, according to local media reports.
Wei opened the first Gath brewery in 2010, and opened it again in 2011, according a report by the Gattia news site.
It’s the first ancient Gatha brewery in China.
The craft brewery was named Old Gath because it had been there for 3,000 years, the report said.
The brewery was built on a hill, and its owners had built a brewery garden, according the Gotta Times newspaper, which was first to report the story.
Wei had a vision of opening a brewery in the city, the Gatta Times said.
“I saw the old city brewing beer,” Wei told the newspaper.
“The first craft bar was a dream for me,” he said, according it.
The new bar will open in the historic city in March, and will feature a traditional Chinese brews from ancient Gathi.
The owners of the brewery say that their new bar is a tribute to Gath.
“This is the first bar of Gathi, but there are many old breweries in the area, so we have decided to put together a bar to commemorate them,” Wei said.
They have also decided to have a beer garden on the premises.
The Gattias newspaper said Wei had an initial investment of 1.8 million yuan ($17,800) and is now in the process of building a second craft brewery.
He plans to open the second brewery in 2021, the paper said.
This is the second time Wei has opened a new brewery.
In 2012, he opened a second brewery, and in 2014, he said he would build a third brewery.
This time, he will build a bar that will be called Gath Brewing Co., Gatta said.
There are still many unknowns about how the first two breweries were able to thrive in Gatti, the newspaper said.
It also didn’t say when the third brewery will open.
“We want to give the locals an opportunity to visit and taste their local beers,” Wei added.
