‘How To Run a Small Scale Brewery’

You may recall that, in autumn 2015, I wrote about a fascinating Chinese pamphlet from 1958 which celebrated beer and beer making.

To my pleasant surprise, the write up about Zhu Mei’s How to Run a Small Scale Brewery seems to have developed a bit of a cult following. Several months old, “A Microbrewery Revolution in Socialist China” continues to gather more pageviews on a daily basis than any other post on my blog. Every several weeks I get a new round of Twitter notifications that the post is being shared again.

Zhu Mei’s How to Run a Small Scale Brewery

I bought the booklet from an online book market and at the moment I don’t see any more copies available. However, due to the interest in Zhu Mei’s advocacy for brewing in socialist China, I decided to scan the pamphlet and make it available to readers. I hope to make use of this text in my research, but others are encouraged to do so, too–please, however, acknowledge the source!
