Hard to believe but true. I found thirty six bottles of this at a grocery store in Qinhuangdao, China when I was living there. Bought a couple, drank them, then went back and bought the rest. The same store also had Barking Squirrel.
Interesting, any proof?
Not the OP, but I do know Moosehead has been seen in China, and it can't be a far stretch that they would back similar distribution for Hop City. In fact, in Hong Kong I do recall seeing a handful of Canadian brews. If memory serves right, stuff like Unibroue and some BC stuff. But foreign craft beers are usually very small volume on the shelves (eg, 6 singles or so). Not sure if these come in through an agent, or more consumer-like channels.
