The Shanghai International Beer Festival returns. Again. An orgy of food and craft beers by the water with 250+ kinds of beer, 25+ food vendors, and a bunch of DJs and performers. Sensory overload and high alcohol content. Pretty commercial affair, but it can be an alright time. The event goes from 2pm-midnight on Saturday and Sunday, but music will wind down around 10 or 11pm. The 50rmb ticket includes one beer, though you may be able to find a free ticket around town -- there's lots.
