Craft Beer Holiday Autumn 2016

Not content for once a year, they’re going twice a year now.

Craft Beer Holiday in Osaka returns for a second time in 2016, perhaps taking hints from the Keyaki Hiroba Beer Festival.  Craft Beer Holiday is a four-day craft beer festival held at the park around Osaka castle, known as Osakajokoen from Friday 7th October to Monday 10th October. In 2015, over twenty breweries from across Japan came for the four days of drinking and relaxing in the park with an impressive view of Osaka Castle.

Craft Beer Holiday Glass

A beautiful glass.

Craft Beer Holiday starts on Friday 7th October at 14:00 until 21:00, then on Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 to 21:00 while the last day Monday from 11:00 to 19:00 to give people a chance to recover for the first day back at work on the Monday. Tickets cost ¥3,200 in advance, which are on sale now, and for this you get ten beer tickets and an original glass. This year though the ticket system has changed with two tickets needed for one drink of 360ml of beer. Moreover, the tickets can be used to either buy beer or food on the day.

If you buy the ticket on the day, the price goes up to ¥3,500 for the same amount of tickets and original glass. It’s important to note that beers can only be served in the original glass or a specified glass from the events, so keep ahold of it and don’t lose it, drop it, break it, or other things that usually happen after too many beers. Additional tickets cost ¥1,000 on the day for a two drinks, while a special glass can be bought for ¥1,250.

If you go, let us know. Send us your pictures on either or Facebook page or Twitter feed.
