More Asian Beer


I think Yan Jing was the best; it was a lot like Heineken, but a little better. I still haven’t tried most of them — they’re in my frig.

    The “Dark Beer” on the far right was horrible.

    try tsingtau. i had it in china the first time i went, and it’s great.

    Kirin might top Yan Jing, it’s a balanced brew and slightly bitter.

    I haven’t seen tsingtau yet, but I’ll ask around.

    So…how much did a case of any of this cost?

    I think Kirin might’ve been the most expensive, 13.90 RMB ($1.95 USD). And the others were around 5-7.00 RMB ($0.70-0.98 USD).

    Wait like $1 for a case or per beer????

    Please shoot me an email that everything is ok.

    It’s per beer, so for a case of really good beer is $12. That’s about the same as America. But for the lower stuff its much cheaper.

    all of them are too light and sweet for my tastes, but I liked Yanjing most. I’m surprised you haven’t seen Tsingtao; it was ubiquitous when I was there. It’s also the most commonly exported to the states (although I’ve found Yanjing here as well). Japanese beer tends to be drier (and better?) than Chinese, imho. If you find Hitachino White, pick it up. it’s awesome. and while we’re at it, Suntory single malts compete with the Scots. Anyway, hope you’re having a great time! try everything. twice.

    What about Zhu Jiang Beer? My favorite from the south!

    Tsingtao is the greatest beer in China. So Smooth its the Coronna of China. Its in a green bottle

    Pretty standard lagers. The far right one looks like Tsingtao Dark?
