If you’re following me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook – you might have noticed a wee video from the Qingdao Beer Museum as I down a beer and talk about an exciting competition being run by Tsingtao Brewery.
Missed it? I’ve conveniently included it below for your viewing pleasure!
A Contest, You Say?
Why, yes! Tsingtao Beer, my favourite Chinese beer, are offering the chance for you to win one of five trips to the Qingdao Beer Festival at the end of August.
The contest includes international flights, Qingdao accommodation, and entrance to the Qingdao Beer Fest with all of its pageantry, festivity, and (of course) beer!
All you need to do to enter is click here and submit your photo or video of you with an ice cold bottle (or glass) of Tsingtao beer and you’ll be in the running to win your trip over to China to participate in the festivities.
Why Visit Qingdao?
I’m writing a lengthy post espousing the virtues of Qingdao as we speak. It’s one of my absolute favourite cities in China, and not just because it’s China’s uncontested beer capital.
While there’s certainly plenty of beer related fun to be had between the Tsingtao Brewery, the Qingdao Beer Festival, and the fresh seafood and suds of Beer Street, it’s so much more than just a place for drinking.
Qingdao is something unique in China, as its German colonial roots are still very much in evidence in the architecture and ambiance of the city.
Its beaches and mountains offer something for the outdoorsman, and the Olympic Sailing Centre gives the city a foreshore that puts me in mind of Sydney or Vancouver.
