The 28th Qingdao International Beer Festival will be held from July 20 to August 26 in East China's coastal city of Qingdao, organizers said on Wednesday.

This year, the beer festival will gather 200 beer brands from more than 30 countries and regions, said Mi Desheng, director of the tourism commission of the Xihai'an (West Coast) New Area, where the festival will take place.
More than 1,300 types of beer will be presented during the festival, he said.
The festival period has been extended this year to accommodate more tourists, Mi said. The festival venue occupies more than 800,000 square meters, he added.
Qingdao hosted the 18th Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit on June 9 and 10. The beer festival will feature SCO countries, including a venue for Russian beer, Mi said.
Qingdao is home to Tsingtao Brewery, a time-honored beer brand in China. Its international beer festival is an annual carnival and one of the largest in the country.
