The Qingdao Beer Museum was built in 2003 and commemorates some 100 years of German brewing history and heritage in China. Visitors to this top attraction can wander the halls of the two-story structure and learn about the traditions developed and perfected here, thanks to photo galleries and exhibits where brewing tools from the trade are on display. And while an up close look at the nation’s deep roots in hop history makes this place worth a stop, it’s cold and crisp samples straight from the production line that make a tour of the oldest working brewery worth a visit.
Qingdao Beer Museum is located in a two-story red building at No. 56, Dengzhou Road. It is also known by locals as Tsingtao Brewery. From July through September the museum is open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and from October to June the museum is open from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Admission is CNY 60 from May to October and CNY 50 from November to April.
