About Qingdao Beer Museum, Qingdao
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 you are in Qingdao and love beer, you gotta check this place out. First off, the street it is located on is full of unique bars and eateries, so lot's of options - but not to active in the winter. The brewery location is big, so lots to explore. Architecture, history and of course beer! Self guided tours amd go at your own pace, ticket price options include beer samples and food if you desire. Brewery is still in operation so you get to see all the action of China's famous beer maker.
If you like beer and going on brewery tours then go here. If you hire the tour guide then you can drink beer for an hour free.
I thought tour was interesting, probably not unmissable (hence 4 stars). It is basically a historical museum for Tsingtao (over 100 years), combined with a working brewery, producing cans and bottles. At the end of your you can taste and buy different beers and snacks like sausages. A bit like a German beer hall.
Nice place. I don't forget tsingtao原浆 beer.
Really nice Museum. You should definitely check it out when being in Qingdao :)
