Great Japan Beer Festival 2011 in Tokyo

It's the highlight of the year for Tokyo's hop heads: an afternoon of hardcore tasting, with over 100 varieties of craft beer on offer and the kinds of crowds you might expect on the Yamanote line during rush hour. In a break from the norm, this year's Great Japan Beer Festival also has a charitable bent, which is to say that ¥100 of each ticket will be donated to the Japan Red Cross Society; otherwise, it looks set to be business as usual. Once you've paid the admission price, you're free to drink all the beer you can stomach for the next three-and-a-half hours (though bear in mind that you'll be supping it from a 50ml tasting glass each time). There's also food available à la carte, courtesy of Dean & Deluca.
