It was a little strange to walk past this building and realize it was a beer museum. its a nice tour explaining the history of not only the business but also the surrounding area. As typical it has the Japanese touch of being quirky and unique which made it that little bit special.

There were some truly amazing photographs, graphics, and other museum standards, but nothing is accessible to the casual non-Japanese-speaking peruser.

The museum has two levels about the history of the brewery and the making of beer, with some limited information in English. It is not particularly interesting - this is basically a marketing exercise. The highlight is the tasting room where you can get relatively cheap beer. While it might be a fun thing to do with a bunch of... More

Honestly, I would have no clue about Japanese or what and how the beer was made. Did the beer tasting after the tour, brought a Sapporo T-Shirt and off to the beer garden. A place to go if you want to taste different types of beer brewed by Sapporo.

Most parts of musuem are in Japanese as well as the tour guides. Unlike Asahi brewary in Shiroishi, there is no free beer sample given. It cost 500Yen for 3 different types of beers but still relatively cheap compare to the restaurant price. There is nearby beer garden which offer grilled lamb as well. In my opinion, I prefer the...

This place is lots of fun. Museum itself is small but to the point. Beer tasting place downstairs is nice and very well organised. Each beer comes with either cheese or cracker.

We just grabbed a taxi cab from the hotel to the Sapporo Beer Museum. The complex was huge with several old red brick buildings and some modern structures. We were a little lost which building we should visit. It turned out that most buildings were restaurants and a relatively small one was the museum. The museum admission was free. Upon... More

A free attractions museum consisting of the history of the Sapporo Beer brand displayed in storyboards, pictures and models. Not much of interest but the displays are very well done. Don't forget to taste the Sapporo Beer set at the end of the museum tour for a bargain price.

The museum itself is a free entrance, with a great (albeit brief) history of Sapporo's breweries. The exhibits themselves don't have English, however they have an accompanying handout that translates each exhibit by number, giving you an idea the content of each part of the museum. Some of the artifacts are very interesting, including: historical beer bottles; examples of malt,... More
