We had though the brewery was open late during the week but we were wrong. Convinced the staff to sell us a pitcher of beer, the promise was we had to consume it in 20 minutes. Being a typically Canadian, always up for a challenge, we accepted. The raw beer, only good for 24 hours, is fresh from the tanks... More

Other reviewers have pretty well covered why this is such a cool attraction in this city, in the midst of urban beaches, parks, and colonial-era European-style buildings, but IMHO no visit to the Tsingtao Brewery Museum is complete without a banquet at one of the excellent Shandong cuisine restaurants across the street. Shandong cuisine is renowned in China for relatively... More

It's a quite interesting museum, I would recommend taking a foreign language guide which is only 50rmb, the entrance is 50 rmb as well but it includes access to both exhibitis A and B, here you will learn about the history of the iconic beer of China. It's a good place to spend free time, it's located in a weird... More

Think of beer, think of China, you get Tsingtao. Started by German colonials in1903, stolen by the Japanese and returned to China after the war. This is a true success story, with a interesting heritage. If you have an interest in brewing, industrial architecture or just beer you will enjoy this. From the colonial buildings, to the oldest surviving Siemens... More

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
