Sapporo Beer Museum, Hookaido, Sapporo, Japan

There are five Sapporo breweries in Japan, but the Sapporo Beer Museum, located in the former Sapporo Sugar Company building, opened in 1987 and remains the country's only beer museum. There, visitors can enjoy a tour and learn about the company's brewing practices, after which they can have a fresh draft beer and Genghis Khan-style barbecued lamb at the Sapporo biergarten. Admission: Free.
