Sapporo Beer Museum Reviews
We enjoyed the Sapporo Beer Museum. It was pity there wasn't a bit more English through the exhibition but it was still very interesting. The beer hall at the end made it a complete experience and..... more »

Surprisingly deep free tour and delicious tastings - we didn't expect much but the free tour exhibits all have English translation cards next to them and teach you all about Hokkaido's development since the late 1800s. The tastings at the end cost ¥600 for a flight and come with light bar snacks. The line for the tickets machine can get quite long so set aside some time and send someone from your group to claim a table while waiting.
Probably some of the best beer I've ever had the chance to drink! I visited here in November so it was all lit up in preparation for Christmas. The building is beautiful and there are many great photo opportunities. Inside, you can take a short free tour, or a longer paid tour. After wandering through the small free exhibition, we got to the beer hall where you can sample various beers and have some small snacks. I must warn you that it can get extremely busy all of a sudden when the tour groups roll in! Also, it is not particularly cheap but the 3 beer set was the best value. Definitely try some Sapporo Classic! The gift shop was great for branded goods. You don't need to spend particularly long here- 30-45 minutes should do if you are taking the free route. There is a huge mall next door with an equally huge supermarket inside (stock up on some beers from there!!).
