A visit to Qingdao, the beer capital of Asia, would not be complete without visiting the beer museum.The original brewery turned into a museum, with a great story on the history and evolution of the famous brand. a great way to spend an hour or two.. Qingdao also plays host to the International Beer Festival for 2 weeks every August.

Styla the concierge from our hotel gave his time off to accompany us in our hire car to show us around Qingdao. On the mention of Tsingtao Beer he told us the beer's origin is from Qingdao which amazed my husband. He does not drink beer but was delight to visit the museum/factory. It was very interesting to learn about... More

"Tsingtao Beer” is a world famous Chinese brand of beer. It is from Qingdao, with a German heritage. German settlers in 1903 founded the beer, “Tsingtao” is the old spelling of “Qingdao”. The Museum derived from the oldest beer factory. The exhibitions contain three parts: (1) history of Tsingtao Beer. (2) the way how beer is made, (3) current brew... More

Must visit in Qingdao, to see the history of Qingdao Beer, and taste the super smooth beer brought into China by the Germans. Very interactive and fun museum, with nice architecture and interest exhibits.

It's hard to believe that the Germans "settled" Qingdao for close to two decades at the beginning of the 20th century. Arguable the greatest legacy left by the Germans is the Tsing Tao brewery, first built back in 1903 and China's world renowned beverage company. There are many great photo ops in and around the brewery including some of the... More

This is a very interesting tour. I would suggest anyone going should take a quick look at the history of Shandong and Qingdao before going. The price of admission is under $10 USD, the price of an English speaking guide is about $10.00. If you're a senior, there's a discount. A guide isn't required, and most exhibits have information in... More

Be sure to read and enjoy the museum exhibits, noting, of course, that Tsingtao is the center of the universe. They become even more entertaining as you stop for beer samples.

What you'd expect from a beer museum really. A bit of history; a look at the factory; a taste of some beer. A good museum to spend a couple of hours.

Like most tourist places in China quite crowded, some historic displays but not that much stuff. I think the "drunken" crooked little house was probably the most entertaining part. The one free beer was good but the Budweiser brewery gives you several free beers and the tour was free. And when I was there kids "tweens" were drinking their free... More
