Craft Beer Festa Kyoto 2016

Craft Beer Festa Kyoto 2016

Kyoto’s best, well in our opinion, craft beer festival takes place on Saturday 14th 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 ¥2,000 which will get you six beer tickets, or if you want to buy a beer on the day it will cost ¥400. Buying the advance ticket will not get you a special glass, though one can be bought for ¥400 and is 240ml. The festival is from 12:30 ~ 20:00 with tickets and glass available from midday on the day as well, weather permitting so best check in advance as rainy season is coming.

As mentioned, Craft Beer Festa Kyoto have done a great job in getting an excellent line up with the breweries below all attending:



  • Kizakura
  • Kinshimasamune
  • Kyoto Shuzen Kaido Beer
  • Kyoto Ichijoji Brewery

Really? Never had it nor seen it outside of the brewery. Would love to try it but would mean a long trek down there.
