Japan Brewers’ Cup 2025

¥1,000 (advance sales)¥1,200 (on the door)

The Japan Brewers’ Cup is one of the major events on Japan’s craft beer calendar. It’s both a festival and, as the name suggests, a contest between the brewers.

What happens?

This year sees 40 Japanese brewers and craft beer importers pouring more than 300 different beers. With such an amazing array of breweries, it’s difficult to make recommendations, but West Coast Brewing, Totopia, Nomcraft, and Kyoto Brewing will be popular among patrons.

Aside from the beer, food and people (entertainment enough most would say) there is regular shows on the stage. Previous years have included performances 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 group.

How to get there

Previously held at the end of the Osanbashi pier, since 2023 the event has moved to the nearby CIQ Hall at Hammerhead.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
