  • Factory would be able to think when, during the Hall of Fame and the paid tour with tasting commentaries was a main. Even for a drink because if you pay the money was clean and light snacks and good.

  • Longevity beer is the famous Japanese beer brand, participated in the navigation, although only the Japanese guide, but also a rough understanding of the history of the longevity beer, see a lot of old Japanese-era beer-related exhibits, well worth the visit.

  • It’s good to visit who likes beer. It’s a small museum but its contents are interesting. Highly recommend to drink tasting set, including 3 different flavor cups of beer. just 800 yens but the quality is excellent. One missing is guide tour just for Japanese. I want to hear the explanation by english.
  • A good side trip in Ebisu. A very straight forward tour, with some beer and snack to finish the afternoon. Beer is mediocore, but as expected from a corporation. Just a note for visitors that this is a non-functional brewery, so if you're looking to see beer being brewed, this would not be the place to go. Otherwise, it's a fun activity and a nice place to hang out
  • Love here! Must taste a variety of Yebisu beer. :)
  • This was a nice place to find out the story of Yebisu beer while sampling some of the fine beers. Although there was a small history tour, it didn't seem to interesting as it was only a walk through of some photos and exhibits in an adjacent room, which is accessible without the tour. Although the tour does end in a sampling of the beer, I opted to go straight to the beer sampling. The beer was a sampling set of the traditional light beer, an amber beer and dark beer. Overall I'd recommend this to any beer enthusiasts although it would be better if the tour and experience was more in depth with a viewing of the rest of the facility and the beer making process.
  • No English tour. Disappointed. Yebisu was not familiar at all, so I'd like to know more about it. Beer was good, though.
