As Qinghai province is in an alpine region, the local people are accustomed to the company of alcohol, especially during the annual Spring Festival. Highland barley wine was originally named Weiyuan spirit as it was produced in Weiyuan town, the capital of Huzhu Tu autonomous county in Haidong.

Huzhu Tu autonomous county, located at the southern foot of the Qilian Mountains, is blessed with gentle weather and is abundant in highland barley. Local people often use highland barley with sweet spring water as ingredients for making highland barley wine.
