We went on a hot afternoon and this was a great relief from the heat. The visit is free and although a bit quick, it gives a good overview of the company and the process. The free tasting at the end was really appreciated.

I went there without a booking (which I've done on at the Nagoya brewery), and the non-English speaking staff just handed me a laminated sign in English saying (basically) "no booking, no tour." Quite a shame, as their Nagoya counterparts are exceptionally accommodating! Based on...More

Our train was late (for once in Japan) and arrived 10 minutes late and were not allowed to join tour and told would not be allowed to join another one that day- totally inflexible and sent us away- awful customer service

Asahi Breweries is located near JR Takeshita station and easily accessible from downtown Fukuoka. The visit is free of charge, but accompanied by their staff. Their display is not very informative, but the tasting of beer at the end of tour is excellent!

Yes, they are allowed. Children can try the Asahi brand juices at the end while the adults can enjoy their beers.
