A museum and beer garden, Sapporo Beer-En is located in the original Sapporo brewery. Two tour options are possible: visitors on the short tour (30 minutes) get a takeaway goody bag with a can of beer per person and various other items; those wanting more action should take the 50-minute option, which includes a 20-minute all-you-can-drink afterwards.
The adjoining beer garden has food, a variety of beverages and serves the local grilled lamb speciality, jingus kān , which has become a popular Sapporo dish.
To get here, take the Tōhō subway to the Higashi-Kuyakusho-mae stop and take Exit 4. Head south along Higashi-Nana-Chōme-dōri to N8E8 (about 10 minutes). The large brick chimney with the distinct Sapporo trademark star is unmistakable.
By bus, take the Chūō Bus Higashi 63 and get off at the Kitahachi Higashinana (N8E7) stop in front of the building.
