MONS beer

Here’s another example of me being an idiot.

Shortly after arriving in China, I noticed this very popular brand of beer. It was everywhere, possibly because it’s cheap. The name struck me as very strange, though. Why would anyone name a brand of beer “Mons?”


“MONS” beer?

I tried it, and was not very impressed. It’s a very light, mild beer. Not bad, very drinkable. but I think the main selling point is the price: ¥3 per can, about 50¢.

The name was still strange, though. What the heck was the significance of Mons?

Then one day I turned my head the other direction, and realized what an idiot I am.


Now you know what SNOW looks like upside-down.

You don’t have to tell me, I already know: I’m an idiot.
