Craft Beer Kyoto Festa 2018

Craft Beer Kyoto Festa 2018

Kyoto’s best, well in our opinion, craft beer festival takes place on Sunday 13th May and it looks bigger than ever this year. The Craft Beer Festa Kyoto was first started by those lovely people over at Yamaoka Sake Shop and they have managed to outdo themselves this year to get even more breweries to come along. The only problem is that it is only a one-day festival so you better drink quickly if you want to try everything at the Craft Beer Festa Kyoto.

Tickets for Craft Beer Festa Kyoto can be bought in advance for ¥2,400 which will get you seven beer tickets plus a 240ml plastic cup, and went on sale March 12th, or if you want to buy a beer on the day it will cost ¥2,800 for seven tickets or ¥400 per drink. The festival is from 11:30 ~ 18:00 with tickets and glass available from 11am on the day as well, weather permitting so best check in advance as rainy season is coming.
