I have never tasted it, seen it or heard of it but apparently Snow brand beer may very well be the second most popular beer in the world, if a business news article in the Kansas City Star is to be believed:
Snow, the Chinese beer brand partly owned by London-based brewer SABMiller, is set to become the No. 2 beer brand in the world this year, SABMiller said, citing industry data. Snow is the main national brand of CR Snow Breweries, SABMiller’s 49-percent-owned joint venture with China Resources Group Ltd. According to beverage research firm Canadean, if Snow maintains its sales of 2.3 billion liters sold in the first six months of the year, it will surpass Skol and Corona and trail only Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc.’s Budweiser.I need to get out the coal fired shortwave radio to tap a message out to Myrick, our man in China on this one. We need a review, though previous reviews of Chinese brew have been less than attractive - especially that pineapple beer.
