When it began...
From Qingdao to the world
Tsingtao Brewery Co., Ltd. was established in 1903 by German and British merchants as Germania-Brauerei Tsingtao Co., Ltd. As one of the earliest breweries in China, Tsingtao is currently the sixth largest brewer in the world.
With more than a century of brewing excellence, we are now the top Asian imported beer brand. We are also a Global Top 500 brand with a strong presence in more than 100 countries.
At Tsingtao, we bring together a unique formula of bold Chinese craftsmanship, refined German technology, and the most extraordinary selection of ingredients to craft a truly refreshing beer.
Our first award dates back to 1906 at the Munich International Expo. During the course of our journey, we have received multiple international recognitions such as the European Beer Star award in Germany, and the World Beer Championship Gold Award in the U.S. We are also the official sponsor for the upcoming Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Tsingtao encourages people to take a fresh perspective and break down social barriers. Whether it be making a new friend at the bar, getting to know someone better at a party, or watching a game with a group of people you don’t know... Sharing a Tsingtao means that you’re making a new friend anywhere you go.
