Default Chinese beer

I just went to a Chinese buffet and had some Tsingtao, which is a Chinese beer brand. It'* absolutely delicious. It'* also much stronger than any American beer I've had. Shortly after drinking this beer, I went to Paypal.com to type something for my clear corners package claim/dispute, and I saw when I submitted a message that I had typed 2 periods! This is some interesting beer.

When I was in China year before last, a 2-liter bottle of Tsingtao was less than $1 US.

I had many, many 2-liter bottles of Tsingtao.

I hate to burst your bubble, but it is not stronger than American beer... Bedweiser is 5.0% abv, and Tsingtao is only 4.8% abv

Personally, i hate Tsingtao, i think it tastes alot like Heineken, and i hate them both

Give me a good IPA any day....

Yeah, I'm with you guys on the Budwieser. I kind of forgot about that one.

repinS, that'* hilarious! I was talking with some people when I read your comment, and they did not appreciate the booming laughter. Poor, poor eardrums. Amazing!

I can see how one could tire of the taste, but it was pretty freaking good for something I'd never tried before. That $1 price tag is enraging! I paid $3.50 for my bottle.
