Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn 2015

 

Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn
The Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn is a biannual event held in the vicinity of the Saitama Super Arena; once in spring and also an autumn event too. Featuring over fifty, yes 50!, craft beer companies and bars from Japan and overseas, the Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn is a six-day event, from the 18th September to the 23rd September with plenty of choice for everyone.

With a strong leaning towards Japanese craft beer produces, with the big names such as Coedo (Saitama), Baird Beer (Shizuoka), Minoh Beer (Osaka), and Yo-Ho Brewing (Nagano) amongst others, rubbing shoulders with the smaller companies such as North Island (Hokkaido), Yorocco beer (Kanagawa), Outsider Brewing (Yamanashi), and Brimmer Brewing (Kanagawa), this really is a true Japanese craft beer festival.

With beers starting from ¥300 in price for roughly small sizes of about 250ml, and ¥500 the most common starting price for medium-sized classes. There are also craft beer tastings sets as well for customers to try from most of the breweries as well, that start from ¥1000 for 4 different beers. Some of the breweries, for example Outsider Brewing, Nasu Kougen Beer, and Shonan Beer have produced some special beers that can only be tried at the Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn. Even more incentive to go, as if you needed it.

The Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn really should be an event anyone with an interest in Japanese craft beer attends. We attended last year’s event and the only problem we had was that the event is
