Over a period of two months, visitors will not only have the opportunity to enjoy more than 100 flavors of beer from renowned brands such as Snow, Harbin, Budweiser, and Tsingtao, but also have a chance to try authentic food from Harbin, Russia, and Southeast Asia.
The festival will also feature four themed activities—"Youth Night", "Classic Night", "Anime Night" and "Rock Night", which will consist of singing, dancing, cosplay, and rock performances.
Other activities, such as beer competitions and self-brewing, will also take place.
