Ned’s carries a great range of Australian imports, if you crave a VB or Boags, this is the place to go. Tiny, ill-decorated and poorly furnished, this remains one of the most entertaining and laid back of Nanluoguxiang bars, and is a true beer bar.

You’ll also find great German brews at Shindler’s Tankstelle and Die Kochmutzen. Belgian beer can be had at Beer Mania as well, and since its not that dissimilar from German its worth listing here.
