The Brickyard will once again participate in World Baijiu Day. From 9 to 11 August, we will provide special deep-fried baijiu ice cream and our crafted liqueur spritzer. See a video to learn what World Baijiu Day is all about.

Weekend Activities & Barbecues
Enrich your summer holiday experience at the Brickyard. There will be three Saturdays in August (10th, 17th, and 24th) with afternoon activities followed by barbecues. Have a look at our calendars Year Round Activities and Saturday Activities.

Summer Educational Tour
The Brickyard recently hosted students and faculty of the Crystal Springs Uplands School in Hillsborough, California for a village tour, home visit with our retired "barefoot doctor,” noodle making competition, and noodle lunch with our homemade traditional sauces and condiments.
New Zealand VIP Visit
The Brickyard team was honored to host New Zealand's tourism minister Kelvin Davis and ambassador to China Clare Fearnley and their party last month for a lunch in a shady corner of the garden.
Blooming Lotus
Time to enjoy the beauty of lotus at the Brickyard north garden. Temperatures here in the mountains are not as high as in the city, so a morning yoga class on 25 August held next to the lotus pond will be restorative. See how to spend summer at the Brickyard

Sustainability in Action
To respond to the recent refuse sorting action in Chinese big cities, Brickyard has made our own recycling rules which divide the recyclables into different storage bins and then make continuable use of them. The sorting is a reflection of the waste we produce in large amounts: slippers (which we compost), glass bottles, and cans.
