Mikkeller Beer Celebration

¥12,500 – ¥56,000


A two-day international beer extravaganza, the annual Mikkeller festival is a beer lover’s heaven. With over 300 beers to choose from and 40 breweries visiting from across the world, it’s a celebration like no other. Top visiting brewers include Arizona Wilderness (USA), Omnipollo (Sweden), Garage Project (New Zealand), Sailor’s Grave (Australia), Great Notion (USA), Gwei Lo (Hong Kong), Marhs Brau (Germany), Burnt Mill (UK), Taihu (Taiwan) and Pastueur Street (Vietnam). Japanese brewers include Minoh Beer, Shigakogen, Kyoto Brewing Company, Devil Craft, AJB and Yorocco. The tickets are pricey but cover all beers from all brewers, so you can really get stuck in.

The festival will be divided into four colours, with different brewers available on different sessions (which are yet to be announced) so if you want to try them all for two days of beer-drinking, you will have to fork out for a gold weekend ticket (starting at ¥56,000). Regular non obsessives can opt for a single session ticket which costs ¥12,500.

The sessions are :
Yellow (Saturday: 11am – 2.30pm)
Blue (Saturday: 4.30pm – 8pm)
Red (Sunday: 11am – 2.30pm)
Green (Sunday: 4.30pm – 8pm)

To soak up the alcohol be sure to try the delicious food on offer!
