The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) held its first ever beer festival in the capital Pyongyang on Friday drawing more than 800 residents, tourists, and foreign guests.

The opening ceremony began at 19:00 on the pier of the Taedong River, one of Pyongyang's most famous landmarks, with performances, and free beer served for the visitors.

The fried chicken and beer combo remained the favorite of the evening crowd.

The event, which will last for about 20 days, is reportedly held to promote Taedonggang beer, Pyongyang's own brew and the most popular brand of beer in the country.

The beer, named after the Taedong River that runs through the capital is a full-bodied lager a little on the sweet side, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

"It is great. This is one of the best beers," said a Pyongyang resident.

"This is world class beer. It is great. We have our leadership to thank for being able to drink to our hearts' content today," said another resident.

The festival will continue on the Taedonggang cruise boat every night until late this month.
