We arrived around 6:30pm, meaning we had missed the tours (apparently only in Japanese anyway). We payed 3800yen for all you can eat GenghisKhan and all you can drink beer for 100minutes. The atmosphere was awesome and we all had the best night. Go with friends and an empty stomach!

An interesting place to visit and can learned about beer making process. The best collection of beer advertisements. You can test three types of beer at the museum for reasonable price. No need of any advance reservation. Very little explanations are available in English. However there is miniature beer factory, which explain process of beer production.

Did a tour of the brewery museum after a brisk mile walk from my hotel. Lovely old brick building, and attractive tasting room and gift shop. Then got to experience Jingisukan cooking. Here on business and made a nice break.

We went here while in Sapporo for the snow festival. We had a fantastic lunch in the bier garden, and then toured the museum. The architecture and layout of the museum was stunning.

This is a beautiful building. very picturesque from the outside. The museum is free and very interesting with a lot of historical photographs and artifacts. No English, although they provide a brief overview of each section in a handout. You have a choice of tasting at the end in their large bier garten setting which you purchase at a ticket... More

Great place to check out the history of Sapporo Beer and enjoy refreshing beers before leaving. Thoroughly enjoyed the layout of the museum and liked the tasting plate of beers which was a good price.

This museum tells the story of Sapporo Beer. Most information is in Japanese only, but there's an English guide that you can refer to. If you speak some Japanese, try and get in on one of the tours, as they were quite informative and enjoyable. My friend didn't speak any, but appreciated my summary of what the guide had to... More

Great way to spend a few hours. Not as much english translation as I would have liked. Nice beer sampling service and delicious restuarants.

I went here with a friend during the 66th Sapporo Snow Festival and had a great time. The only gripe I have is the lack of better ventilation in the main dining hall. You make your own food but the smoke was overwhelming at times. Would go again if I am back in Sapporo.

When we paid for the entrance fee, we were given some information sheets in English. The numbers on the paper correspond with the numbers next to the exhibits. The history of setting up the brewery and its operation through century was interesting to read. There is also a display of old and replicated machine, old bottles and labels being used... More
