Sad news! The much-beloved Beer Lady
on Fahuazhen Lu, the original, the one that launched an empire
(you're welcome), has closed. The neighborhood will miss that fluorescent beacon of hope. Their lease was due, and frankly, the Lady of Beer had outgrown its shell. She's getting ready for another bout of expansions, with a sixth (!!) Beer Lady opening in Songjiang this coming September, a massive 4,000-square-meter storefront with more alcohol, a full kitchen, a guesthouse and everything. Way to go, beer auntie.
