International Craft Brewers’ Showcase

Redpoint Brewing Company, Taiwan

The beer:

Disco Macaw Juicy Pale Ale, 4.8% ABV

Tasting notes:

Douglas Pierce and Spencer Jemelka have travelled to Shepherd Neame Brewery, in Kent, to brew a special version of this straw-coloured ale for us. It is a delicious, juicy pale ale, with a refreshing tropical citrus flavour.

The brewery:

Redpoint Brewing Company was founded by Douglas Pierce and Spencer Jemelka, two American brewers who have been living in Taiwan and Asia for more than 23 years combined.

Their mission is to bring American beer culture to Asia and brew American-style, high-quality, fresh craft beer. As Asia starts to embrace and love a greater variety of beer styles, Redpoint will lead this beer revolution as the first American craft brewery in Taiwan.

The brewer:

Doug started his career in Asia as an executive in the semiconductor industry. Through many changes and a decided lack of good beer in Taiwan, Doug started to brew at home with his (now) business partner.

After a few successes and many failures, the beer started to become good – and their friends and family pushed them to take it to market. After a lot of hemming and hawing, Doug decided to throw his corporate life to the wind and build the first foreign-owned brewery in Taiwan.
