This year, Guangzhou Night was held at the Party Pier, a Beer Culture and Art Zone standing along the Pearl River overlooking the sparkling Haixinsha Island and Zhujiang New Town.
At Party Pier, Zhujiang-InBev International Beer Museum is definitely one of the most attractive spots for visitors. It is the biggest beer museum in South China to showcase the material, production and history of beer. In the museum, documentary professionals saw the reliefs of “Beer Ocean”, old-fashioned carriage for transporting beer, the brewing technique of the most primitive beer and the development history of Pearl River beer.
After the tour, guests had a taste of several kinds of beers produced by Guangzhou Zhujiang Brewery Co., Ltd at the buffet, which gave them a more impressive memory of the Pearl River beer.

The rosewood lantern show featured Guangzhou intangible cultural heritage and several models with unique cheongsam, thus it caught the camera flashes of all the people present.
