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

The Qingdao Beer Museum provides a well-organized tour of its history. It is one of the best museums that I have visited in China. The entrance fee is reasonable and also includes a beer tasting and sausages at the end of the tour. Definitely worth the 1.5-2 hours.

The museum is well designed, clean, very educational and one of the best museums I've visited in China during my 4 years living here. Even if you're not a big fan of beer, this museum will have lots to interest you. It talks about the German influence on Qingdoa and China, how WWII and the Nazi's influenced their production, etc.... More

This is a fantastic museum. You get a combination of Tsingtao history, beer information, and old brewing and modern brewing techniques. This was an extremely well rounded museum...plus you can drink beer! The 60 RMB entrance fee is quite reasonable as are the gift shop and bar prices (15 RMB for a half liter of of unfiltered beer). It was... More

We had a perfect introduction in to the history of beer, in the German ex-colony of Qingdao. The Visit of the Tsingtao Brewery is a must! Just the glasses for testing the golden liquid have been a little bit to small. At the end of the tour you’ll find a nice restaurant where you can get German sausages and other... More

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
