North Star at Shaoguan 北极星在韶关
In 2004, Mr. Frankie Wai had started introducing Vigour Beer at Shaoguan in GouangDong Province to the Canadian Beer industry. The idea was to introduce Canadian beer to the Chinese market in China through Vigour Beer. For 4 years, Mr. Bill Sharpe of Northern Brewery had made trips to Shaoguan established, produced and launched the North Star beer at Shaoguan. Unfortunately, the market back then was not ready for a western beer yet.
2004年, 韦会长已就广东韶关活力啤酒厂希望引进外国品牌，提升产品质量而努力过，为此花了四年时间，带领加拿大北方啤酒厂总裁 Mr. Bill Sharpe 到韶关访问，与韶关活力啤酒厂合作酿成北极星啤酒品牌，推出市场。后因当时市场未及接受而告终。
