Apologies, since coming back from our holiday to the UK, BeerTengoku has taken its time to catch up with events and happenings of festivals and events. Craft Beer Picnic in Osaka was one of them that suffered. Held from Friday 19th September to Wednesday 23rd September, also known as the Silver Week holiday, the concept is quite simple; a picnic in the park with craft beer and food.
The event, held at Nakanoshima Park, is open on the Friday from 15:00 to 20:30 when last orders are taken. Craft Beer Picnic in Osaka is then open from Saturday 20th September to the 23rd from 10:30 to 20:30, again when last orders are taken. Craft Beer Picnic in Osaka has an unusual way of buying drinks and food in that you pay ¥1,000 for a block of ten tickets, each costing ¥100 a piece which you then use to buy beer or food with. ¥500 will get you one 360ml glass of beer from any of the beer vendors, while food is priced differently depending on what you buy. Alternatively, you can pay ¥1,500 for a four-beer tasting set of beers from the 60 different types available
If the weather holds out, what with so many typhoons coming during that week, Craft Beer Picnic in Osaka looks like a welcome addition to the ever-expanding craft beer calendar. If you go, let us know.
