I thought Tsingtao would be #1 for sure, even when I spent time there it seemed like more people drank it. Maybe that was only in the region that I was in hear Shangai. I wonder how their international sales compare with the other beers. You can cross-post this to our site and link back to your site. We are trying to create a directory for top ten lists where people can find your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.

Spent 7 years in Beijing and traveled a lot, I would have bet money on Tsingtao being the most popular.

Having reviewed the list I find three untried beers - I need to go back.
