We took the self-guided tour of the beer museum (you have to go upstairs; elevators available, if needed). There was a paid guided tour available with beer samples at the end of the tour. Our group wanted to experience the brewery at our own pace....More

OK, this is not a well developed museum, but the displays tell you the history of beer in Japan, and of Sapporo brewery in Hokkaido. It is interesting, and free. There is a guided tour, but that's in Japanese, and our Japanese isn't very developed...More

Fun museum to learn 🍺 brewery. Also you can enjoy 3 types of beer for reasonable price. Tip for foreign travelers: take 88 bus from sapppro station. Google map says is enough fool to say 20 min to walk is only way to get here.

Visited the Sapporo Beer Museum to get an understanding of the Sapporo Beer Brand and their process of making beer. The beer making does not happen here and if this was the reason for visit, you will be disappointed. However for a casual walk around...More

If you are in a hotel have the front desk call for you, unless you speak Japanese it will be difficult otherwise. Enjoy!
