Sapporo Beer Museum

Sapporo Beer Museum, the only beer museum in Japan, was opened in July of 1987 to provide visitors with a varied knowledge of beer and brewing. Renovated in 2004, the exhibition allows guests to learn easily about the history of Sapporo Breweries Ltd. and the beer industry in Japan. The building which now houses Sapporo beer Museum was constructed under the direction of foreign engineers in 1890 as the factory of the Sapporo Sugar Company. It is one of the precious cultural legacies of the Meiji Era, together with the old red brick Hokkaido Government Office. Sapporo Beer Museum has been selected to receive the official "Hokkaido Heritage" designation.

Sapporo Biergarten

While imagining the old days of more than a century ago when the red brick walls of this restaurant were constructed, you can enjoy the freshest draft beer and Genghis Khan-style fresh barbecued lamb.
