Great Japan Beer Festival

Things to do

It's the highlight of the year for Tokyo's hop heads: an afternoon of hardcore tasting, with over 120 varieties of craft beer on offer and the kinds of crowds you might expect on the Yamanote line during rush hour. Once you've paid the admission price, you're free to drink all the brews you can stomach for the next three-and-a-half hours from their special 'best aroma glass', which is supposed to bring out the best in the amber liquid. Rare beers abound, with queues to match. Note that admission is limited for each session, and the event often sells out, so you might want to pick up a ticket in advance.
