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!

Cafe Odeon is a quite fun bar with a wide selection of belgian and european bottled beers. Nothing on draft, and nothing unobtainable in the US though, and on the opposite side of town to you, by the sound of it.

I found the best beer downtown at the Gordon Biersch...not at all impressed with Jolly's. I also found that the Costco had really good beers. Other than that, Taiwan needs to work on its beer groove! Cheers and best of luck!!
