Improved Taedonggang Beer
Pyongyang, March 16 (KCNA) -- The Taedonggang Beer Factory in Pyongyang has produced new varieties of beer.

The new varieties brewed with rice, mixed with malt, are enjoying popularity among local people.

The factory, which obtained the ISO 9001 for the first time in the local foodstuff sector, has applied a foodstuff-safety management system to the production processes and improved the taste and quality of beer by increasing the degree of fermentation.

The Taedonggang beer won the special prize at the National Exhibition of Successes in Quality Control held in August Juche 98 (2009) and took the top place at the National Beer Show in October that year.

The beer has many efficacious elements including vitamins and mineral matters but less sugar content, giving a good effect on diabetes and obesity.

The beer made of rice is not too strong but clear and frothy.

The beer is also popular among foreign tourists.
