When I originally went to visit the Sapporo Beer Museum and Garden, I was thinking about the free beer tasting.http://www.sapporobeer.jp/english/guide/sapporo/Hours: 9:00a.m. - 15:40p.m.Holidays: December 29 - January 5.I took the bus there, but there was an upgrade work going on and it was closed! While the restaurants were open, and Mongolian Goat Grill buffet was available, it was too early. So I got on bus to visit the original factory at another site. That site is called The Factory. http://www.sapporo-factory.co.jpHigashi 4 Chome, Kita 2 Jo, Chuo-ku, Sapporo A part is the old red brick building, with the black tall chimney, now used as a small exhibition of the beer-making process and some shops and restaurants. Next to it was the glass-dome, modern shopping mall. It was very nice, especially in winter when it was very cold outside. They already had the Christmas decorations, and it was only November!
