There are 2 types of tickets for the 2016 event. The first costs ¥1900 (¥1600 in advance or¥1900 with a festival glass). This entitles you to 5 220ml beers of your choice. There is also a one day ‘all you can drink’ (nomihodai) ticket, which comes with an original glass and a wristband; you must have both of these to be served (there are a limited number of glasses so come early to avoid disappointment). One day tickets can be used for either Saturday or Sunday and cost ¥5000 (¥4500 in advance). Broken or lost glasses will need to be purchased again.
