Small Batch Craft Brewing

A tale of East meets west


While Chengdu may not seem like an obvious choice to establish a craft brewery, for Wild West founders Scott and Carol Hunt, the location was perfect.

Pursuing his dream of establishing a premium craft brewery, brewmaster Scott combines local flavours with traditional Western brewing methods, creating unique and delicious beers, spanning IPAs through to wheat beers.

The Jinli Taphouse

local craft beer in one of chengdu’s iconic attractions

Established by Carol Hunt (李文芳), the Wild West taphouse began over 12 years ago as Carol’s ‘East meets West’ bar and cafe. Now reopened as a craft beer pub, it remains the best and most popular venue in Chengdu serving Wild West’s entire craft beer range.

With friendly staff and a vibrant atmosphere, the taphouse is located next to the Wuhou mausoleum on the Jinli ancient street, a hot spot for tourists and locals alike due to its central location and abundance of traditional Sichuanese arts, crafts and snacks.

The Wild West Taphouse is located just beyond the performance stage, its opening hours are 10am til late every day.
