Okay, so there is a story behind the TSINGTAO beer. I first tried this one last year while traveling in China (Sept/Oct 2007). It was the most popular beer around when I was there. Then a couple of weeks ago we traveled over to England to visit some friends, and wouldn't ya know it, there was a bottle of TSINGTAO on the shelf at their grocery store. Of course, I had to have it to add to my beer tasting site list! This beer is "internationally known as the best beer in China" - as it states right on the bottle. It's brewed and bottled by TSINGTAO Brewery Co in QINGDAO China. It's a must try, and a pretty good beer taste too. Just leaves a little after taste, but nothing you can't handle!
