From the official Qingdao Beer Festival site, not just one mascot, not just two... but an entire menagerie!!! And a partying menagerie, at that. It's the Chinese Zodiac squad, almost (we don't recall a Year of the Shark... though we'd support adding one...).
Clearly, you must go to Qingdao.
We find it impossible to choose a favorite, though we're not quite sure about this guy...
... any ideas?
