Not a bell ringing experience but a nice way to while away a couple of hours... The restaurants and bars across the street charge a lot for the beer but all up it is ok.

This museum is divided into two parts, one containing some history about the company which was very interesting and another part about the production and distribution of the Tsingtao beer. The ticket was also valid for some tasting of the beer and at the end you could also buy other kinds for tasting (although a little pricy compared to outside)... More

Their slogan is so true - "Give us an hour. We'll give you a century". An attractive museum tour where you would enjoy the historical walk through the three zones. Ticket price is RMB60 per head inclusive of a cup of raw beer, a bag of peanut and a cup of draft beer for free when making the journey. Hold... More

"Wheelchair accessible" is not something I can write very often living in China. I was so SO pleased to see the thought and care that had gone into the design and layout of this attraction. I am not a wheelchair user but a mum with young kids and a stroller (as well as an Occupational Therapist by trade) so it... More

My friend did not want to accompany me to this museum so I had to go there alone, and I did not regret it at all. The ticket price was 60 RMB (30 RMB for me since I was a student). Over there you can see the history of Tsingtao Beer, the factory, the materials such as hops (you can... More

This museum is not only great because you get free beer ;-) It is in an old brick building, on the grounds of an active brewery. The history, the process of beer brewing are well documented and demonstrated. The beer tastes delicious. There is a fun "Drunk room" in one of the areas close to the exit, with slanted walls...

It was worth the trip, but if you have been to the Guinness tour in Dublin, it will be very, very familiar (don't innovate - replicate!!). Ask for the young beer if they have any - it is super yummy and has much more flavour than the homogenous bulk brew that they sell. Cool gifts for your beer loving family... More

I really enjoyed the tour through the Brewery Museum. It is very informative, tells you a lot about the history of the Qingdao Beer Company and teaches you about beer brewing itself. The tour is well structured and available in several languages (as a hand out) You will get 2 glasses of beer and a bag of peanuts later on... More

The displays are attractive, detailed and well organized and add a lot of interest to the tour. It's so good the way they start with the old German brewery then continue to the modern production area. Like a trip through time. The free samples are generous and have the great fresh taste of newly brewed beer. A few more smiles... More

They give you free beer inside. Three buildings to visit. Starting from oldest to most recent history of Qingdao beer making. And to my surprise it is a real factory!!! This is where the Qingdao beer comes from. You can see workers, bottling, boxing the beers. Awesome!
