View from Above

In July, the BBC helped us show you an advertisement for North Korea's Taedonggang Beer. Today, with more help from the BBC, we bring you proof that the brewery exists. Thanks to the wonder of satellite photography we have an aerial shot of the brewery - note the distinctive "M" shaped entrance.

Taedongang used to be Ushers Brewery in the United Kingdom. It was purchased by North Korea in 2000, dismantled and reassembled, and was up and running 18 months later.
