We arrived there pretty late so we didn't have too much time to go into details. The display of the exhibits can be enhanced to make it easier for visitors to follow. We ended the touring with a beer tasting. The beer was quite standard, the most interesting was the non-alcoholic beer. Not my thing though, perhaps some people would... More

The place takes a while to get here, especially when snowing. The old buildings are neat and well kept, but there is not much one can do here. Beer tasting was so so. Overall, the experience was average.

It is almost not possible not to know Sapporo beer when you are in Hokkaido and of all cities, Sapporo! Interesting to see and read about the historie of Sapporo beer. It is actually the first Japanese brewed beer that has been developed in Sapporo. You can try a Sapporo beer tasting after the tour and you can even go... More

Very typical beer museum, but I like how the curator put it, and deep looking into understanding the history of Modern development of Hokkaido, marketing of the beer to customers to literature journal of the kind. Bored enough if you aren't a history or social studies lover. But anyway one must try the beer set, I personally love the 開拓使beer,... More

As Sapporo beer is one of the most well-known beers in Japan, visiting this museum will give you a background idea of what Japanese people like and what makes the beer unique. The place is very clean and staffs were really friendly to us.

Strangely enough, I'd never been to Sapporo Beer Museum, even after a decade or so of living in japan. My stand-by duties completed, I have a few hours off after another late lunch to finally traipse on down, so into the subway I went with Google Maps directions in hand. It was the shortest route through a lot of housing,... More

When I went there, the main building was closed and I was a bit disappointed. However, I suggest to go there around meal time. There are very good Sapporo food restaurants.

Sapporo don't have many tourist spots, and beer museum is one of the few tourist spots. You can see how beer is made and what Sapporo beer was like when it was built in 1876. You can also taste Sapporo Classic Beer and Sapporo beer in 1976.

Sapporo Beer Museum was an interesting place. It is free of charge to explore the old factory and you can also request for a private tour for an additional price. The highlight was the all-you-can-eat-& drink Lamb bbq lunch. The meat and vegetables were fresh, and for a peak summer time, there were not too many people. I had a... More

From the Sapporo Station, go to the bus stop and stand at #2 for the 188 bus. It costs 210 yen per adult. The museum has an option for paid or free. If you take the free option there are English cards AR each stop. To be clear, this is a very small museum. At the end you can sample... More
