Doh! Where were you guys a few weeks ago? Grin!! I am back in the states and did not find much "good beer" while in Taipei, Taidong, and Taicheng. I may go back this summer so thanks for the FB links! PM me if you need me to bring supplies. As long as customs allows them, I am happy to toss in an extra checked bag with grains, yeast, hops, or whatever...

This is a market RIPE for a good nano or larger craft brewer! I spent time in the north, south, and middle of the island and did not drink much. Still I saw a lot of mountains, lakes, temples, and ate a lot of great food. Well worth the trip. Just don't expect a beer scene cuz it doesn't exist there!
Glad you had a good time
Taidong is pretty tight, huh? Anyway welcome back- now go get some real beer!

Found a neat club in Taidong with a lot of Philippine singers and musicians. Drank Bud but the atmosphere was awesome!

Reviving this topic... While my previous trip didn't happen, I will now be there at the end of this month. Arriving Saturday morning and free up through the Dragon Boat Festival, with work Tue-Thurs. That should give ample time for exploring.

Looks like my hotel is only a 600m walk to Jolly's Brewery. Is that worth checking out? Difficult to figure out much regarding the place since I don't speak or read Mandarin!
