The street was bustling, noisy and clamorous.
A butcher who used a machete chopped down with his knife and bones split apart like flowers. An old lady selling embroidered shoes with needles and candles, and none were left alive within a hundred feet. An oil seller with 18 swords hidden in his sleeves was always staring at the steamed bun stall on the other side. A little beauty who could change her face nine times with a flick of her finger. At the end of the street, there was also a wine shop named Donggui. Inside the shop was a young man who could brew wine. That young man… really only knew how to brew wine.
He had twelve jars of wine, but no one came to drink. The shop only ever had one customer sitting inside - a tipsy man who wore white and carried a spear, whiling his time away. He said he wanted to buy a horse, hang a jar of wine on it, whip it into a wild ride, and get drunk on the spring breeze.

In ten years, he would brew an ultimate wine. Finally, he stole a title deed from home, ran hundreds of miles away to Chaisang City and opened a tavern. However, this long street was filled with lethal characters and he was the only one who was seriously brewing his wine. Due to various circumstances, he became embroiled in a feud between two great families and befriended Sikong Changfeng, a wanderer with no family, as well as Lei Mengsha, who was known as Sir Zhuomo from Tianqi City.

Synopsis (from Youku TV):
Baili Dongjun, the young son of the Marquis of the Western Garrison, was a naughty and mischievous child who hated studying, hated military arts and hated martial arts. His only love was wine-brewing, just because when he was young, he made a promise with his childhood friend, Ye Yun, to one day become the "Wine Immortal". Alas, not even Baili Dongjun could decide his own destiny. Eventually, he became the disciple of the number one martial expert under Heaven, Li Changsheng, and started to learn martial arts. While undergoing his training, he met Yue Yao, who became a close confidante, and also reunited with Ye Yun, who had changed his name to Ye Dingzhi. Under their influence and encouragement, Baili Dongjun began to re-assess his own identity and responsibilities. Many years later, Ye Dingzhi was manipulated by others and forced to launch a war against the Central Plains. Baili Dongjun gathered all the heroes under Heaven to defend their land against the invasion. Facing a friend who was like a brother, not only was Baili Dongjun unwilling to back down, he was determined to save the people, and also his brother!
