Beijing, Aug 8 (IANS) Drink a bottle of beer in three seconds and go home richer by 100,000 yuan ($14,700). This was the challenge at an annual beer carnival in China.
Over 20,000 local people and tourists showed up for the three-day beer carnival that started late Friday in the desert oasis city of Wusu, in Xinjiang Uyghur autonomous region over the weekend, Xinhua reported.

Twenty booths were set up along the streets of Wusu, where around 30 tonnes of beer were to be given to people for free.

Wusu has a tradition of beer brewing. Local brewer Wusu Beer Co. Ltd. produces around 200,000 tonnes of beer annually and ranks among China’s top 15 beer brands.

This was the third year the city has held such a carnival, which would cost around three million yuan, officials said.
