"In Guangzhou Steht Ein Hofbrauhaus!"

Now here's some good news:
The Munich Oktoberfest, the annual festival of beer, sausages and raucous singing, is to be exported to China, the state of Bavaria announced.

Bavaria's Europe Minister Eberhard Sinner has struck an agreement with the southern Chinese industrial province of Guangzhou to hold a version of the Oktoberfest there.
Eins, Zwei, Zoufa!

Why Guangzhou? You'd think Qingdao with its German colonial past and famous beer would be the first place for an Oktoberfest in China.
