Shougang Park, in the heart of the capital's western Shijingshan district, will host the second annual Beijing Craft Beer Festival during the May Day holiday.

With a lineup of more than 500 varieties from more than 100 breweries, this year's festival is expected to be a haven for beer enthusiasts and food lovers alike.

Last year's inaugural festival drew over 20,000 visitors, transforming the former industrial park into a bustling hub of merriment, according to the city's commerce bureau.

Li Wei, director of the Beijing International Economic and Trade Development Association's beer distribution committee, said the consumption of craft beer in Beijing surpassed that of Tokyo in 2018, making it the biggest city for craft beer in Asia.
