All the beer in China: US brewer Michael Jordan's dream

The Chinese may not have the beer-drinking reputation of the British or the Germans, but one US brewer sees an opportunity to change the country's drinking habits.

Michael Jordan, a brewmaster originally from Oregon, has spent the past three years trying to convince customers of the joys of American craft beer.

After a recent beer festival in Shanghai, he gave the BBC a tour of the Boxing Cat Brewery, one of only a few microbreweries in China.
