Free entry and an enjoyable history of Japanese beer making, plus the opportunity to taste the various Sapporo beers for a small fee in the tasting room, with some beer snacks.

First, building and chimney catch your eyes. You can learn the history of Sapporo Beer, even if you are not curious for such a thing, maybe just walking around and taking picture are very interesting.

There is no entry fee to get inside the building and you work your way down from the 3rd floor to the ground floor passing through some historical facts of Sapporo beer's beginnings. You can sample the beers at a nominal fee and can also buy some souvenir items. The place is serviced by buses that can take you back... More

The design of this building is amazing. However it is free and easy tour. No work in progress, just history. Unlike Kirin Beer Factory, this is just a museum. ¥500 for three types of Sapporo Beer, good price and good value. Nice and friendly staffs. However business time is from 10:30 -- 18:00 in summer, open for business too late.... More

While hubby went for the trio beer where you could try the three types of beer produced there, I decided to try the beer ice cream which made for a refreshing snack for the afternoon. We did the self tour around the place which detailed the history of Sapporo beer and its place in the history of the city. A... More

The Sapporo Beer Museum is located about a 30 minute walk from the JR Sapporo station. Not really worth taking a train here as the nearest station is a similar distance away. Attractions include a tour of the factory (only in Japanese though) and beer tasting. All the museum information is in Japanese, however, so the only real worthwhile venture... More

Third time I've been to Sapporo and third time I've been back to the beer museum! You never get sick of the stories the exhibits tell. You definitely don't get sick of the 'tasting portions' of Sapporo beer, of which some are exclusive or difficult to find outside of Hokkaido.

Free to get in you are immediately directed onto a walking tour depicting the history and making of Sapporo beer. We found the museum lacking in substance and actually a bit boring other than the room of posters depicting advertising campaigns through the ages. Finally you come to the tasting room where via a ticket machine you can buy an... More
