Yokohama gets its second BeerFes of the year in September when the Great Japan Beer Festival, aka BeerFes Yokohama Autumn returns for more three-day drinking, coincidentally timed with Silver Week. This annual event gets bigger every year and this year is no different with over 200 different beers available for tasting.
Held at Osanbashi Yokohama International Passenger Terminal, BeerFes Yokohama Autumn is held from the 21st September to the 23rd September and has breweries from Japan, with some import beers also on sale.
BeerFes Yokohama Autumn is open from the later time of 15:30 this year to 18:00 on the 21st, with last orders at 17:45. The timings for the Saturday have also changed with two time slots. The first being from 11:00 to 14:30 and the second from 16:00 to 19:30 on the 22nd. The last day of the event only has one time slot this year, with it being from 12:30 to 16:00 with last orders at 15:45 due to judging and tidying up. For those that attended last year’s event, unfortunately the slots have shrunk a bit in time, going from four hours down to about 3hrs 30.
Tickets for the Friday of BeerFes Yokohama Autumn can be purchased for ¥3,600 in advance or for ¥4,000 on the day. Tickets for the other days at the BeerFes Yokohama event can be purchased in advance, at ¥4,600, which includes a special event glass, at either the homepage here, in English, or in convenience stores. If you want a food ticket, that includes ¥1,000 that can go towards food, then tickets start from ¥5,500 yen. Tickets do sell out quickly for this event and last year was a sell out. With over 9,000 people expected this year over the weekend, the Great Japan Beer Festival is likely to sell out before the weekend.
