Q: Where to find cider in Beijing?

I want to make my friends taste cider, but I have no idea where to find some.

 

I'm looking for Brut cider (4-5% alcohol).

Cider is very seldom found in China.  I have looked for it many winters, and never found one.  I did see some in Hong Kong, but it did not taste good to me, sort of bland.  Nothing like good old cider from back home.  Maybe you should try at markets selling foreign goods around Xmas time.

Last winter I was given a box of apples by a dear Chinese friend for New Lunar Year.  What to do with them ?.  Oh, cider will be perfect.  So, I searched internet and found a site to my liking, followed the instructions and came up with pretty acceptable cider done at home.

 

You can find the site at : http://www.howtomakecider.com/cider_intro.php

Visit it, and if you like it, give it a try.  It is not hard to do, getting yeast is the worse part, and my GF does that for me at a local bakery store.

I do not live in Beijing but I saw some cider in an imported products supermarket in Sanlitun street, where the embassies are. It was a quite big supermarket with two floors and a Subway on the second floor.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
