The Museum of Yebisu Beer

Yebisu beer is a subsidiary of Sapporo Beer, which is Japan's oldest beer company. The Yebisu brand has been around since 1890, and has a rich history. You can learn all about this history in the Museum of Yebisu Beer, which has exhibits with information in Japanese and English. There are some really cool items in the museum, including very interesting art pieces.

Once you've learned about the history of the beer, you're almost definitely going to feel like trying some! If you opted to take a paid tour for ¥500 (in Japanese), you'll get to sample 2 beers at the end of the tour. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, there is also an ¥1,000 English tour available (at 2 times during the day) that includes a token for a drink at the end of the tour.

Whether or not you took a paid tour, after looking around the museum, you should definitely head to the tasting salon. There (as long as you're 20+ years old), you can try 6 different Yebisu beers, along with some interesting beer cocktails for ¥400 each. Reading information about beer is great, but experiencing it first-hand is even better!
