It's very beneficial to know the Chinese words for various types of alcoholic drinks if socialising in China. Chinese people generally don't go to bars very often, preferring instead to have a drink with a meal. The younger generation may go to bars more often, especially colleagues meeting after work. Either way, its good to go armed with a knowledge of some crucial vocabulary!

Dani invites Leo along to the bar to meet some of their colleagues. Dani teaches Leo how to offer to buy a drink for someone in Chinese. Leo learns how to order various different drinks including beer, wine and Chinese alcohol. Dani introduces Leo to Alex and Jenny. Leo also learns the meaning of the customary toast in Mandarin Chinese - Ganbei!

Modern beer brewing techniques were introduced to China by the Germans, Czechs and Russians who built breweries in the North East of China at the end of the 19th century. China's most popular beer today, Tsingtao, comes from this region and is now exported all over the world. The traditional Chinese alcoholic drink is baijiu or 'white alcohol' which is distilled from rice or other grains.
