Of course a must do visit in Qingdao is the Tsingtao beer brewery. There are guided tours, we went on our own. It can take a couple of hours and it's well worth it. You can choose your level of ticket, i.e. A ticket with 2 beers and peanuts, i think it was ¥60, or a ticket with unlimited beer... More

Very nice and professional. With english explanations available. Some European Museums should take an example of how to make an attractive and modern museum. Spent 2 very interesting hours there. 2 free beers included.

Walked through the old section which is now the museum and the new section that still manufactures beer in a commercial scale. The museum presented the historical information from the founding of the brewery by the Germans to to-date, a joint private and government owned enterprise. Along the way, sample of an unfiltered raw beer and a draft beer with... More

The museum is at the site of the main production plant of world-famous Tsingtao beer. The exhibit is divided into 2 parts: the first one is housed in the former main office building, a German-style mansion still retaining some of its old-world charm. The second one is a walk-through of the beer production process showcasing the old methods, machinery and... More

If you are going tip Qingdao this is a must see place. The brewery was founded 1903 by German sellers and later driven by Japanese. Today it's for sure one of the best Chinese beer... The simple tour is 60¥ and you will get a glass of raw beer (really tasty) and one normal Tsingtao end the end of the... More

The tour teach how everything was started and how well Germans did of setting the brewery and how did Japanese help them to be part of Qingdao's beers journey. Easiest to get ticket is online cheaper and allows one... More

We liked the try of unfiltred beer which is free for everyone. We also tried an Ale and Stout beer. So our Entrance fee was 70RMB. If you only try the unfiltred... More

The guided tour is relatively cheap and definitely worth it. Museum trip also includes more info than traditional brewery tour, plus two small free beers!
