Qingdao Beer Museum - Review
This is a more than 100 year old brewing factory that had been built in place of a German Brewing Company. This company was formed in 1903 and was the 1st European organization of this type here. After almost a century this was turned into a Chinese factory with over 55 brewing and malt factories in 18 cities of China. They still have an awesome collection of local beer and malts showcased for foreign visitors.
This is an old 2 storey red building made in a very German style and forms one of the typical Gothic buildings of the city. As you go inside you find that old world charm with black and white photographs depicting the rich history of this place. There are 4 large copper brewing vessels that are known to have been made in Germany and were in use till the brewery closed down. Apart from these you will also find old brewing equipments and other such objects that are examples of the blend of German and Chinese culture.
It is not just a museum but also a place where you find a lot about the ingredients that are usually used in making good beer and brewing them. There is a huge stock of very good beer and malt from which you can taste and buy some. This is one of the most recommended places to visit and a pride of the country.

Qingdao Beer Museum, Qingdao Reviews
If the food in the restaurant had been warm, it would be 5 stars. I don't like cold chips. I do like beer though. I enjoyed the museum and I felt extremely welcome. They care about beer here. I feel bad that I couldn't drink all the free beer but the dark ale was clearly a quality drink but it wasn't something for me. The others beers all went down well. Everywhere in the world an effort needs to be made to encourage "responsible drinking". Let's share ideas about this. Clearly no one has got it right yet. :)
Had a great afternoon at the beer factory and tour. Lots of people but a good atmosphere and two free beer tastings
take a look history of Qingdao beer and buy some souvenir - that's it. Too crowded. But can experience their flesh beer.
A great review of the history of Qingdao. Very nice and competent guide! Her English was great.
Not bad but if you have been to some of the other world renowned brewery, it's just average.
