The hallmark of craft beer is innovation, and craft brewers interpret historic styles with unique twists to develop innovations that have no precedent in the market. HK Yau, a new local brew collaboratively developed by Craft & Crew and the international symbol of craft brewing – Brooklyn Brewery NY, inherited the same creative mind and aspirations, and hope to enrich local craft beer scene together with other craft brews.
As the distributor of HK Yau, Craft & Crew is fully backed by Brooklyn Brewery’s expertise, techniques and international aspiration, and we are committed to explore, innovate and rejuvenate traditional recipe with exciting twists to demonstrate the evolving craftsmanship. For instance, we incorporate some very authentic local ingredients, such as Chengpi, Chinese coriander to HK Yau’s recipes. Having the highest quality beer for our drinkers is extremely important to us, so we are eager to leverage the knowledge from Brooklyn Brewery, and glad to share with other local breweries, with the hope to achieve our collective mission of the craft community – delivering the best craft beer experience to beer drinkers. We are very proud of our home city and the fantastic craft scene that is burgeoning here, and look forward to work together with local brewers for many more years to come.
