Rebranded as the beers of Japan festival, this event was previously known as the Kyushu Beer Festival. Due to current virus the event has been rescheduled for September – it is not clear if it will return to Spring in the future. If it goes ahead there will be a wide variety of Japanese and international beers to try.
Breweries in attendance in previous years include Far Yeast, Hokkaido Abashiri Brewery, Shimane Breweries, Kakuida Brewery, Munemasa Palace Brewery and Brewmaster. Strangely, Brewmaster is the only one that’s actually from Kyushu. In addition to beer, they usually serve lots and lots of meat, including sausages, yakitori and steak.
