The Museum is a don't miss and the like most of Japan, they know how to preserve their history and heritage. Beautiful buildings and grounds. Don't miss the Sapporo Bier Garden and the Ghengis Kahn dinner!

I visited this 'museum' on one of the last snowy days in early April and I must admit that our initial reason and motivation for going was to sample the beer. In fact, the old factory grounds and building have been well preserved and the small exhibition on the history of the company was very well done.They do have a... More

First up, we considered not going due to previous reviews mentioning no English tours. Confident in my Japanese ability, we went anyway. I needn't have worried. When we got there we were given English translations of each display. I found it much more pleasant to go at my ownpace than follow a group. Downstairs you can taste beers for a... More

It was interesting, bug if you have been to a beer museum or factory previously, it's quite similar. The beer ice-cream though was a nice experience xP

Having read the previous reviews, I knew what to expect, but went anyway. I had to. Who, from America, goes to Sapporo and doesn't go on the beer tour? It was the only thing on my checklist for Sapporo after spending 2 weeks of snowboarding up in the mountains. It's primarily a tour of the place where the beer used... More

The museum tour is free and the main hall showcases the making of beer in a very cute way by using figurines. Unfortunately the explanation was all in Japanese and you need to refer to another document provided by the staff. You can taste their beer but they only have 3 types of alcoholic ones, and a couple of non-alcoholic... More

Beer lovers should not miss this place. The place showcases the history and developments of Sapporo Beer, one of the leading beers in Japan. It is not a grand museum but you will enjoy it. I personally like those vintage posters at the grounds.

I went here as part of a group tour, but think it may be better to go on your own - apparently it isn't that hard to get to on the subway system. The tour guide we had was fantastic and explained everything with enthusiasm that was delightful to see. At the end of the tour you had the opportunity... More

So basically the japanese took the german brewing systems and copied them, making them more efficient. This created Sapporo Brewery! Its not very historical but its worth a visit none the less. The highlight would have to be the table bbq and all you can drink for 3 hours for a fixed Sum. When you come outside into the snow,... More

The museum was a waste of time. There is nothing to see except some photos. Everything in Japanese. Beer garden next door worth a visit if you like BBQ. There is a Genghis Khan BBQ where you can have eat all you can lamb and drink all you can beer for 3700+¥. There is a mall nearby -- Ario mall.
