Tips for a Better Experience at the 2010 Qingdao International Beer Festival
- Feel free to strike up innocuous friendships with perfect strangers who would like nothing more than to get drunk with you and then part ways forever. Or not.
- Go on a weekday when the crowds are smaller. Less people means shorter lines at the WC.
- Eat well to soak up all the beer, which goes very well with meat on a stick, aka chuanr, on sale along with other Chinese food all around the fest.
- Ganbei with the World!
