Getting there is a bit tricky. We went by train to Sapporo Station and it was hard finding the bus stop at the South Gate. We had to ask a few times. The bus stop is outdoors so it’s further down like you just keep walking until you’re at the end. We went with Bus 188. It didn’t seem like the buses were often as there was already a line for the bus when we were there. It’s also hard to miss the Sapporo Beer Museum stop. I think most people stop there or maybe it’s the last stop.
At the reception, they would give you information. Also, you have to go up the elevator on the 3rd floor to start your own museum tour on your own. I’m not sure if they do tours at certain times or you have to make reservations. We were there late anyway.
Honestly, we went out to check the restaurants. We were really interested in the Genghis Khan restaurant so we went to the information center to ask about it. They ask if you have reservations and they gave us a menu and price list. It was expensive for our price range so we decided to ditch it and just go sample the beers. So, we went back to the museum.
Since it’s Japan, they naturally have it vending machine style. They also have the display of the kind of beverage you could expect on the right.
The beers are 200 a yen a glass. The beer sampler with 3 beers is 500 yen. The sodas are 100 yen. They also give you a snack with it. For the beers, you can either choose cracker or cheese. For the soda, there’s chocolate or cracker.
This is the orange soda.. Didn’t really taste special but at least you have that option if you don’t drink beer.
