The tour costs between 50-70 yuan and lasts for about half an hour, during which you can see the beer bottling plant, old machinery, the history of the brewery and taste test the beer at the end. Staff there are lovely and helpful. All in all a lovely activity to kill some time for part of your day

You have to pay 50 yuan a person to enter. However it deserves to look and enjoy. You can drink a cup of fresh beer in the middle of the course. At the shop you can buy special goods focused on Qingdao beer. It's really nice.

Tsingtao beer is named for the city of Qingdao. It was started in 1903 while Germans occupied the city. It has since been in Japanese and, now, Chinese hands. Tsingtao is a world quality beer. The self-guided tour is a bit pricey at 50 RMB, but you shouldn't leave Qingdao before doing it. See some of the original equipment as... More

The Qingdao Beer Museum is a great place for couples or older friends that are beer enthusiasts, but primarily for the tasting of fresh, unfiltered beer near the end of the tour. It really is quite good. There is quite a bit of fascinating history from the German occupation of Qingdao, but really, the tasting is the best part.

We took a guided tour, one of three packages to choose from. Took us around two hours to get around and see the original brewery 's interior of German heritage. The interior equipment is of original nature, the cellars and kettles of the Germans who founded the brewery in 1903. Beer tasting at the end. If you plan 2-3 hours... More

I don't drink beer, but I really enjoyed visiting this museum. It is large and interesting with a lot to see and a lot to learn about not only the history of beer, but also Qingdao and China. Really cool experience and of course the beer drinkers enjoyed the 2 free beers.

The museum is part of the big brewing company Tsing Tao. It offers a nice insight into the company nowadays but also to the roots and history. Old machines can be seen and some tasting is possible. Guide in English is available.

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

This factory museum was worth a trip just to appreciate how your drink gets from field to glass. A true European feel to the place with well set out readable displays translated from Chinese to English.
