    I'm not a beer person, but I am a salad person. Anyhow, I found both good beer and good salads here. I ordered one beer (the peach beer), a "beer cocktail" (cherry and beer), and a pumpkin salad topped with smoked salmon, goat cheese, and pumpkin seeds. I recommend all three, especially the salad.

    Service was quick and pleasant, and the waiters can speak English.

    Good vibes too -- lively but relaxed. Lots of expats, even on a Monday evening. A good place with friends or with a date, since you can actually hold a conversation here, unlike at other bars.

    A little overpriced, but luckily my date paid for me. Would go back on my own, though.

    Man, man, man - the brewery.

    Spent countless hours in a couple of after work beers there. It has been going downhill and was a good ride for some time, now I only go for the delicious pork knuckle or lunch deals especially the breakfast pizza.

    I went from the house brews there and let me tell you the Hongmei Amber was the shizznit before they changed the recipe to the Carlsberg, to drinking Tiger and Hoegaarden there because the house brews gave me and my colleagues a bit of a headache the next day and our stomachs felt funny. So what is the point to go to the 'Shanghai Brewery' to have a beer that you can easily have elsewhere for less.

    Now to the service: oh my god! There is still a few waiters that do have what it takes, but there is half the staff hovering around the bar or hiding behind the pillars and they just run away sometimes. Sometimes you tell one waiter what you want or that you want to order and off they go, never to return with nothing happening after until you flag the next one. Sometimes you are not able to pay over the course of half an hour. I guess it still works because the location is great and possible tourist will get caught once in a while to never return after.

    So here is the icing on the cake: they recently changed the glasses the house brews come in, I believe they are now 'small' and 'large' and come in those glasses that look super pretty with a lot of space between the pour and the outside of the glass, there might be some space for air within the glass and you pay for that. I ordered both sizes once they made the change from 0.33 and a pint size to the fancy glasses and guess what, if you pour the small size (it's probably 0.2) into the 'large' glass there is maybe 2 fingers of beer missing to the 'large' size. Nice try Brewery! I will never order those again.

    Here is the good about that place: the lunch deals are okay and come relatively fast. The pork knuckle is amazing! Crispy, it's big, it's a German pork knuckle like you would get it in Munich for example. The breakfast pizza is also great and available with brunch deals on holidays. The sausage platter was great until it came in smaller size and with less tasty sausages.

    Conclusion: the beer is not worth the money, the service is subpar, but the food keeps me coming back once in a while and a lot less often.

    Decided to check out Shang Brew for their Monday Pizza special and although we were a little weary considering how Pizza anywhere in Shanghai is almost always disappointing AND we were headed for a pizza that was on special that night so we were expecting the worst, but figured it was worth it for the beer price. Anyways this was one of the very rare moments when my expectations were wrong and the restaurant actually really impressed my friend and I. I think they have one of the best deals you can get anywhere during the week. We ordered their veggie pizza which was actually really great for Shanghai standards. It was covered in a decent amount of cheese, varied fresh veggies and had a perfectly cooked flatbread crust that wasnt a crispy burnt-bullshit-bottom that most pizza places here try to pass off. Best part of the meal though is that; for two large beers of your choice and the veggie pizza we only paid 72 RMB. My friend didnt like his stout so I switched and gave him my IPA which he enjoyed and as a non beer connoisseur I enjoyed the stout so it worked out great. Anyways we were both full and buzzed and had full wallets when we left, and will definitely be going back on Mondays to cure the start of the week blues on the cheap.

    Shanghai Brewery offers exactly what you would expect from a restaurant like this. (Greasy) Comfort food accompanied by a nice beer. When we were there a couple of weeks ago, the service wasn't very good and the English levels of the team are pretty disastrous. For that reason it can be a challenge to place an order or order something special. With good weather you can sit outside and enjoy the view across the road of the beautiful Sasha's villa and passing by pedestrians. Happy hour is good value and this is a great place to meet up with friends as you are likely to meet somebody you know!
