Sapporo Beer Museum

In a historic brick building east of Sapporo Station is where the Sapporo Beer Museum is located. It is the only beer museum in Hokkaido, opened in 1987, and now brews one of the oldest and most popular beers in Japan. Sapporo is considered the birthplace of beer in Japan since it started manufacturing the alcoholic beverage in the Meiji Period. The first beer production started in 1877 by Nakagawa Seibei, together with Murahashi Hisanari, established the Sapporo Beer Company. Nakagawa Seibei brewed the beer using the German techniques he learned. The building for the Sapporo Beer Museum (札 幌ビール園) was originally used by the Sapporo Sugar Company around 1890. After the renovations, the three story brick building opened as a modern museum detailing the evolution of beer in Japan in 1987.

There are free guided tours you can take and at the end of the tour there is an all you can taste beer session for a nominal price. The museum that now has two neighboring beer gardens that offer guests a variety of brewed beer. In one restaurant you can have all you can eat of the barbequed specialty called Genghis Khan, which is mutton. The other beer garden you can go to is the Garden Grill. Here you can have lamb barbeque in a more relaxed atmosphere. It is also the only place where you can drink Sapporo five Star beers. The premium beer was sold from 1967 to 1972, but it was brought back in 2006.
