Interesting place combined with great beer. I couldn't join the tour because they only have it in Japanese language. However there a cafe where you can enjoy the beer and some food at the of your visit. It's recommended.

A great little museum beer near Mitsukoshi Department Store in Ebisu Garden Place. You can find memorabilia of Sapporo Beer, a refinery was once right in this site area, and sample great Japanese brew. Please sell me one of those historic "happi coats."

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
