Beer continued…
October 7th, 2009 by Jeff

So far China has greatly underwhelmed me on the beer front.  Not that the beer has been bad, just nothing to write home (or on a blog) about.  Often it has been served somewhat warm and I have yet to find anything remarkable.  Most of the Chinese brews are of the “Budwiser” variety.  One beer did bring me back to the Bahamas, the Tsingtao Crystal - it tasted remarkably like a Kalik (Kate even agreed with me on that).  Derek – you’d feel right at home (accept you’d probably be the only caucasion guy with a Bahamian accent in the country).

But I haven’t given up on China yet.  I’m going to keep trying new Chinese beer at every opportunity – probably with some delicious and greatly underpriced food (our typical entrees are running a whopping $4- 5 US for a healthy portion).

Cheers,

Jeff

Tsingtao was my favourite, and now I can get it in Canada too.

Keep up the great blog, it brings back great memories, as it was only this morning that my son reminded me that it is almost 2 years since we were in China.
