From Qingdao to the World 

Tsingtao Brewery Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Tsingtao”) 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.

Break  Traditions

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 Gold Award in Germany, and the World Beer Championship Gold Award in the U.S. 

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. 

Over the course of 121 years of brewing excellence, it is in our DNA to break traditions and evolve in order to offer our consumers the best beer while having fun.
