Chinese Beer Industry Discussed
MARCH 10, 2006--Learn about how the history of Qingdao beer exemplifies
the century-long Chinese struggle for economic and political independence
and modernization, and how the beer industry connected China with the
rest of the world during the Cold War and made China part of the global
community in the post-Cold War era.
Zhiguo Yang of the University of Wisconsin-River Falls History and Philosophy
Department will present "This Beer Tastes Really Good" as part
of the Community Classroom Series on Thursday, March 30 from 7 to 8:30
p.m. in the lower level of the River Falls Public Library.
The beer brewery industry in Qingdao, North China, began in 1903 as a
German business and grew under Japanese management between 1914 and 1945.
After 1949, however, the production of Qingdao (Tsingtao) Beer came under
the control of Chinese Communist government that has utilized nationalism
and consumerism to stimulate the development of beer industry and to increase
the sale of Qingdao Beer both in Chinese and overseas markets.
Community Classroom events are sponsored by the UW-RF College of Arts
and Sciences and the outreach office. All events are free, open to the
public and are held 7-8:30 p.m. at the River Falls Public Library on Division
