And I'm not clear if they mean Harbin has the OLDest beer in China, which must be terribly skunky by now, or the COLDest beer in China, which means they just stored it outside.
Harbin beer is the oldest brewery in China, founded in 1900, and it truly is a decent beer, way better than Tsing dao. Qing Dao, I have not tried them all of course but it is the best I have tried in China. You can get cold beer in the summer. But not in the winter, go figure.
As far as Top International, I have been in Harbin 5 years and never heard of it. The best salary I ever received in Harbin was at a "joint venture" or perhaps what I have seen referred to here as a foundation school. Paid in Canadian dollars, 2100 a month, at that time it was over 14,000 a month. Have never seen anything come close to that since.
I like Harbin, even though I think there is very little night life beyond the brain numbing Disco Dirge.
