URUMQI, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Wusu, which lies southwest of the desert of Dzungarian Basin in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, has a tradition of beer brewing.

The local brewer, Wusu Beer Co., Ltd., is one of China's most renowned beer brands. It is especially known in western China and central Asian nations.  

The word 'wusu' means 'water' in Mongolian. The city is populated by a mix of ethnicities, including Kazaks, Hans, Uygurs, and Mongolians.

During the COVID-19 outbreak in Xinjiang in 2020, local residents had to stay at home to prevent the spread of the disease.

Now, thanks to the effective COVID-19 prevention and control, as well as the high inoculation rate of COVID-19 vaccines, people can go to night markets to enjoy beer and food after taking temperature checks.

Follow our correspondent to night markets in Wusu, to enjoy the famous Wusu Beer!
