If you are in China, you'll most likely encounter Tsingtao Beer! Well, the beer is brewed in Qingdao, China. Of course, I had to go check it out during my recent visit to Qingdao! My expectations for the visit were quite low. China usually isn't the best in presentation with touristy areas. However, while not the best place I've ever... More

This museum is okay, nothing over the top. Provides a history of Tsingtao Beer of takes approx an hour. Various ticket types sold, basic one goes for 60RMB which entitles you to two half pints, another sells for 80RMB which entitles you to as much beer as you can drink. English and Chinese maps are available with the ticket purchase,... More

We toured the museum and small factory last weekend and found it very informative. We went mid-morning when it was not too crowded. All of the displays have English explanations and offer a great insight into the history of both beer and Qingdao. It was a Sunday so only a small part of the factory was operating. At the end...

Who knew that China's Tsingtao beer has its origins in German brewing? I certainly did not but upon entering the museum it becomes readily apparent. Except for some changes in the blends to include rice, it's pretty much the same as it was 112 years ago. The museum gives you a tour from 1903 to present by taking you through... More

The tour is a bit disjointed, but still interesting. Nice multi-media surprise along the way. Diplomatic discussion of German occupation of Qingdao too.

The museum was enjoyable and entertaining! The ticket was 60 RMB and that included a small glass of beer and peanuts at the end of the museum. The information is laid out nicely and easy to follow. You can also get your photo on a beer bottle! Overall it was a fun experience while in Qingdao!

Firstly, it's spelled "QING DAO" NOT THE WADE-GILE "TSING-TAO". The historical origin came from Germany. At the beginning of the 20th century end of the 19th century, Germans brought their finest ingredients to the port city of Qingdao to brew some of the finest beers. I can say that beer bottles are everywhere here in this museum and tasting the... More

Who can pass a visit to a beer factory and museum? It is actually quite good and interesting. The can even give you a beer bottle with a label with your photo on it (35RMB). Interesting stuff in the shop as well and a free beer. My only regret was that I was in a hurry to catch my train... More
