Winner and still Beer Wars Champion… China!?!?!

Imagine my surprise when I saw this…

China has produced and consumed more beer than the USA for 2 years in a row!  I was totalled shocked by this.  This ranking was prepared by the Barth Haas Group out of Nuremberg, Germany, the proud inventors of beer! Also worth noting is that 3 Chinese breweries are in the top 10 producers in the world including my favorite Chinese beer Tsingtao! More details at Testosterone Pit

  1. It’s a bit of a fudge though – for example Tsing Tao is produced for export and for domestic use and the two are completely different (as is the draft version which is not available in South China except in Zhongshan which is twinned with Qingdao anyway). So yes the Chinese are producing a lot of beer, but a lot of it is absolutely awful. I love beer, I live in China and yet I rarely drink domestic beers because they’re so bad.

    1. Agreed, but of the lot I would take TsingTao or nothing at all. I prefer Carlsberg which seems to more readily available these days as opposed to 2007 when I moved here.
