Qingdao beer is one of good quality beer in China. It has more than 100 years history to date. It was created by German. Due to the perfect mineral spring water in Laoshan hill, near Qingdao, suitable for brew, as well as excellent climatic condition, its fame was swift soon.

except this beer, the wine in this district is also famous. such as Zhangyu wine. which has also long histroy and awarded for excellent quality of grapes.

to be frank, I don't drink, neither wine, nor beer. just know many of its brands. 

However, alcohol is most of our chinese favourite. Maotai is one of their representative. few foreigners could bear its higher alcohol strength,

these days are very hot, we are enjoying watermelon.

Tsingtao and Qingdao beer are the same one brand. Qingdao is right true pronunciation of chinese.

whereas Tsingtao is old spelling.

similar, Tsinghua univ, =Qinghua univ.

sKorea has a good products of LCD, especially large size, but their core tech is from Jap.

Jap's electronic tech is still strong, but they fail in strategy. they seem conceited, closed and would not melt into the new world.

chinese will catch up with the world again.

David: Thanks for reminding me of the pub quiz that Sylvie organized - we'll definitely be checking in together about future partnerships like this, both outside and at our events!

Clearly, we're in a beer bubble! 

Brew pubs are everywhere these days. Not only in tech meccas but in all large cities (except maybe St. Louis, where Bud lives.)

At least you can enjoy this bubble while it lasts.

Portland is an IPA heaven (do those big Intel chip fabs have an influence on your beer production?)...but Silicon Valley is caching up.

Here in the Portland, Oregon area, we have so many different craft beers and brew pubs, I simply can't keep track. There are a fair number that brew and sell in their restaurants and nowhere else, nor do they carry anything but their own product. Many are also bottled and sold in stores, or just shipped in kegs to other local establishments. One of the big disadvantages of being exclusive is that if I don't like their brew style, I can't come back and have a different brand.

We also still have a few chip fabs up this way - both potato and silicon.

I used to love Tsingtao (alternate label or different beer?) to wash down food at Hong Kong restaurants when I lived there as a budding EE Times reporter before anyone was talking about smartphones. It was good. So is Singha, Thailand's beer.

Singapore and the Philippines lack a good brew in my opinion and Koreans may have beat Japan in LCDs and about everything else electronic, but Japan still has better beer. Now the Belgians have great semiconductor research at IMEC and some of the world's best brews, too.

I think Design West 2014 should have a beer tasting session with products from all the electronics hot spots in the world.

@zhgreader I've had Qingdao beer both in China and here in the US and you are right--it is pretty incredible! But these craft beers are also amazing--why don't you plan to come to DESIGN West next year in San Jose and do a taste test??
