Shanghai Brewery’s Brewmasters!
Shanghai Brewery’s brewmasters Geoff Engel and Joshua Deitner have dozens of years’ experience between them. They have hand-crafted beer recipes especially for Shanghai Brewery, and they continue to create various seasonal beers that are featured as our Brewmeister’s Choice beers. Shanghai Brewery’s brewmasters believe strongly in the authentic flavours based on the origins of the various styles of beer. With their beer recipes for Shanghai Brewery, they have attempted to maintain the original Czech, German, Irish, British, American and other countries’ flavours of the various brews.
