A Scottish craft brewing expert will sample some of the finest beers in China and around the world.
That's according specialist publication BQ Live, who report that Chris Miller has been invited to join a panel of judges for the awards in Beijing.
Mr Miller is Director at Craft Beer Clan of Scotland, and is considered to be one of the United Kingdom's foremost experts in specialist beers.
His fellow judging panel will be formed by other experts from around the world.
There are growing links between the craft brewing industries of China and Scotland.
Earlier in 2017, we reported that a Scottish beer that was originally never intended to be drunk is going to be available in China after a distribution agreement was signed.
Innis and Gunn is the most popular British beer in Canada, and is also enjoyed extensively in the United Kingdom, as well as in many other countries around the World.
However, it has a very quirky history. Founded as recently as 2003, it was originally intended that the beer would be brewed with the simple purpose of flavouring casks for whisky.
Indeed, the original plan was to dispose of the beer once that process was complete.
In the end, the beer ended up tasting brilliant (in our opinion!) and Innis and Gunn has rapidly grown to become on of the UK's most celebrated beers.
Under the distribution agreement, Dxcel International now offer a range of Innis and Gunn beers for sale in China.
