Beijing Erguotou Museum


Climbing the Great Wall, eating roast duck and drinking Erguotou are three must-do things on a Beijing tour. They are vital elements at every festival and at New Year in China. Nearly every foreign tourist coming to Beijing will taste authentic Beijing Ergouotou. But do you know the history of Erguotou? If you want to taste the real flavor of Erguotou, you should know its history and production technology.

Located in Huairou District, Erguotou Museum has become the new attraction of industrial tourism in Beijing by showing the history of Erguotou through numerous cultural artifacts. 800 years have passed since its origins in the Yuan Dynasty. Visitors can have a good shot of the Erguotou brewed by themselves, or mark them then send them to friends as a commemoration. What’s more, one can experience a real drunken state through a virtual world created by the museum.
