Beer in Plastic Bags – level 2
People in Qingdao City in the east of China buy beer in plastic bags, as it is a local custom.
Almost every street shop has a beer barrel and sterilised plastic bags. You can drink the beer from the bag with a straw or make a hole and pour the beer into a glass.
The beer does not contain much alcohol at only 3.5%, and it is quite cheap, too. One pint of the beer costs 1.5 Chinese yuan, which is around 24 cents. People do not sell it by the pint, however, as they weigh it instead.
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
