A deer at a China resort has developed a taste for beer -- and has apparently been known to knock back as many as four brews over the course of a day.

According to The Telegraph, staff at the resort in Weihai say they discovered the doe's unusual habit while they were cleaning up after customers. A waitress jokingly passed a half-empty bottle of beer to the curious animal, who proceeded to down the remaining contents in one gulp. Witnesses note the deer is also fond of swigging wine if beer isn't available.
