The Taiwan Beer Basketball Team (Chinese: 台灣啤酒籃球隊) is a semi-professional basketball team in the Super Basketball League (SBL) in Taiwan sponsored by the Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor Corporation (TTL). Before the privatization of the sponsoring corporation in 1999, the team was named "Taiwan Tobacco and Wine Monopoly Bureau Golden Dragons" (公賣金龍) and was among the most successful franchises in Taiwan's amateur Division A conference (甲組聯賽). Since the inauguration of the SBL in 2003, the team has turned into a semi-professional club and won back-to-back championships between 2006 and 2008 bearing the new name of "Taiwan Beer".
