Having studied 19th and 20th century Chinese history at university it was quite interesting to actually go and see the brewery and learn more about the German influence in the city. Some of the original buildings and equipment are still intact and there are photos showing the development of the brewery which were all very interesting given that I had... More

One could easily spend at least two hours at this museum, which was the original Tsingtao beer factory founded in 1903. You could get to know every aspects of it was made, and the many Tsingtao brand stories. Drinking Tsingtao beer at such a heritage site made the visit an even more memorable experience.

This place is a best combination of world-class beer factory and museum with a good Sino-German history. While Qingdao beer is world famous, many people do not know that the best Qingdao beer is not available everywhere in China or Hong Kong. It is available as the first glass you are given to try during a tour in this museum... More

There are lots to see and absorb the history of the brewery first built by the Germans and later in local management. Very informative and interesting facts, figures and pictures including a walk through of the actual brewery.

It's worth the visit if you want something culturally Qingdao. Beer culture is very important in Qingdao and Tsingtao beer is it's foundation. The museum has lots of history and propaganda which is entertaining. The tour lacks beer and you get two small cups for free near the end of the tour. Don't bother getting a tour guide, they don't...

For those who come for the history; keep in mind Tsingdao Beer & Qingdao Brewery are owned and operated by the Chinese Government, as a State Owned Enterprise (SOE) since 1949. Therefore, there is nothing German about the beer, except its establishment in 1903 to 1914. However, the museum plays up those years, omitting just about everything there after. The... More
