Trip to Strong Ale Works in Qingdao


Just got back from a very enjoyable afternoon at Strong Ale Works in Qingdao. Steven Daniels and I went to sample a few of their beers, and sat outside under blue Qingdao skies.

Steven and the beers

Both their English and Chinese name contain puns. The English seems to be suggesting a cure for your troubles, whilst their Chinese name is 强麦, sounds the same as 强卖 – “to sell forcefully”.

Outside Strong Ale Works

I also like their 天天强麦,天天向上 motto – “Strong Ale every day, Improve every day”, referencing Mao’s famous 好好学习,天天向上 – “Study well, improve daily” (commonly mangled into “Good good study, day day up”).

Strong Ale Works is on 大学路 in Qingdao, and is well worth a visit for tasting (if they’re open!). Also, I owe you a pint, Steven!
