Keyaki Hiroba Beer Festival Spring 2016
The annual Keyaki Hiroba Spring Beer Festival is coming up again in May though this year and thankfully it has gone back to one week rather than the two week festival in 2015 that was confusingly split into two sessions to accommodate all the extra breweries and expected crowds that will swarm upon the festival. The festival is held from Wednesday 11th May to Sunday 15th May.

This year, the number of breweries is less than previous years, with about 70 breweries and bars appearing at this year’s event. You can expect the majority of the breweries at Keyaki Hiroba Spring Beer Festival to be from Japan though some overseas breweries will also be in attendance.
