Held at the end of the architecturally marvelous Osanbashi pier, the Japan Brewers’ Cup is one of the major events on the craft beer calendar. It’s both a festival and as the name suggests, a contest between the brewers. Entrance is 500 yen with beer on sale for between 300 yen and 500 yen.

There will be 32 Japanese brewers, 6 craft beer importers and pouring more than 300 different beers. With such an amazing array of breweries, it’s difficult to make recommendations, but Devil Craft, Far Yeast Brewing Company, Shonan Beer and Swanlake Beer will be popular amongst patrons.

Aside from the beer, food and people (entertainment enough most would say) there is regular entertainment on the stage. Last year included a performance by a “beer idol” group. Surprisingly, a beer idol is not a bearded, middle aged man with a pot belly. In fact, they look pretty much like every other J-pop idol.
