Photo & Description
Sapporo Beer Museum is Japan's only brewing museum and is free to enter. This most popular landmark in the city is also a Hokkaido Prefecture Historic Site. The owner of the museum is Sapporo Breweries, the leading producer of this drink in Japan.
The museum is located in a brick building of a former sugar factory. The building itself was built in 1890, when the development of entrepreneurship and industry began in Japan during the Meiji era, including agriculture and agricultural processing enterprises. The first brewery in Sapporo was opened in 1876, after ten years it was privatized and the Sapporo Beer Company was created. which in 1903 acquired a sugar factory building for its production needs.
In 1906, three large Japanese beer producers - Sapporo Beer Company, Japan Beer Brewery Company and Osaka factory - merged into the Dai-Nippon Beer Company Ltd, which became a monopoly in the Japanese beer market until the end of World War II, and then split into two companies - Nippon and Asahi. In 1964, the Nippon brewery was renamed Sapporo Breweries again.
The building that now houses the beer museum served as a production facility until 1965. Two years later, a third floor was added to it, which housed an exhibition on the history of brewing in Sapporo. After reconstruction in 1987, the beer museum was officially opened in the building.
In the museum, you can trace the history of the development of the beer business, see models of the building and advertising materials that accompanied the production of beer, beer bottles and tools for its production. And, of course, here you can taste different sorts of beer in the brasserie.
