Qingdao Brewery Tour

The city of Tsingtao/Qingdao is, at least amongst foreigners, primarily famous for one very important reason: The Beer! Tsingtao Beer can be found all over China and through much of the rest of the world as well. If you ever sit down to a proper Chinese meal in Texas or Tashkent, this is likely to be one of the beers on offer. As such, it only makes sense that when visiting Shandong Province in China any foreigner worth their travel salt would make a point of stopping in at the brewery!

For most Westerners, Qingdao is most famous for one thing: Tsingtao Beer.

Sold all over China and increasingly throughout the West, Tsingtao beer is definitely one of the ever-popular “China’s well-known trademark” brands.

Looking to spend time in Qingdao but short on time? This tour from GetYourGuide includes the Qingdao Brewery Tour as part of a full day itinerary. Check it out if you’re worried you won’t have time to explore it all on your own. 

Otherwise, the Qingdao Brewery is (conveniently) located on Qingdao Beer Street. Admission is 50 RMB, and the museum is open daily from 8:30am – 4:30pm. Admission includes a couple of beer samples, so don’t show up too early!
