Taiwan’s First Beer Museum Launched Near Kenting
A brewery and museum dedicated to beer has opened in Hengchun in on Taiwan’s south coast. The 3000 Brewseum boasts 3000 beer glasses from breweries around the world, and a large portrait of Mona Lisa made with 8,400 beer labels. Visitors can learn about the history and science of brewing and enjoy drinking craft beers at the bar afterwards.
The collection includes more than 80 year old Krueger’s Cream Ale and Krueger’s Finest Beer cans that are claimed to be the two first beer cans ever made when they were produced on January 24, 1935. There is also a more than 3000 year-old clay tablet from Iraq depicting a woman drinking while having intercourse, and the world’s oldest extant bottle of beer.
It has taken 7 years for the owner to put the collection together in the purpose-built museum. See more pictures on the owners Facebook Page. The museum opened on March 21 and admission is free until June 30.
