Tsingtao beer

Tsingtao beer (青島啤酒) is China's largest brewery, which claims about 12% of market share. The beer is produced in Qingdao in Shandong province, but the name of the beer uses the old EFEO (Ecole française d'Extrême-Orient) transliteration.

Although marketing for the beer emphasizes its Chinese connections, the origins of Tsingtao Beer actually lie with European colonialism in the 19th century. After the Boxer Rebellion, Germany was able to acquire a concession in Shandong, and proceeded to establish many breweries in the area.
