Tsingtao Brewery Museum
Established in August 2003, the Tsingtao Beer Museum combines the history of the brewery, from when it was started by the Germans in 1903, right up to the present day. It is divided into three sections: History and Culture of a century, Production and Multi Media Area. The first section details how the brewery was founded and built in Qingdao in one of its original buildings. On display are many old advertising posters, photos and other exhibits. The beer production section allows you to feel a part of the beer making process as you wander through the old workshops, brewing lab, fermentation and storage cellar. You finish this section at a mini bar where you can sample the beer before it's been filtered (which I didn't like the sight or taste of). The last section exhibits old packaging (see next tip for photos), new packaging and at the end is where you get your sample of beer which is included in the price of your ticket.
