Sapporo Craft Beer Forest 2018 in Sapporo, Hokkaido

Sapporo Craft Beer Forest 2018 札幌クラフトビールフォレスト2018

In its sixth year, Sapporo Craft Beer Forest 2018 encompasses nature and craft beer with it being held at Sapporo Ban Kei ski slope though this year the dates are July Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th.

Tickets for Sapporo Craft Beer Forest 2018 cost ¥3,000 and include six drink tickets, some original goods that are more than likely going to include a glass, and also a gift from a brewery on entry. There is also a new ticket for this year’s event that costs ¥3,000 which gets you six drink tickets and an original glass as well though this can only be bought in advance. On the day, the same ticket will get you seven beers and a plastic cup. Moreover, the actual event itself is free, so you can just buy tickets on the day at ¥500 per ticket with reusable cups costing ¥100 each.

The Saturday event starts from 13:00 until 20:00 and the Sunday runs from 11:00 until 17:00. There are no discounts for buying the tickets in advance but then neither does the price increase on the day.

How to Get To Sapporo Craft Beer Forest 2018

Sapporo Ban Kei ski slope is not the most accessible of places and is best reached by car, but that means no drinking for the driver. Thankfully, the organisers have realised this and laid on some (free) buses that depart from Maruyama Koen Station that leave one hour before the event starts until two hours before the event ends. The return bus arrives at the same station starting from one hour after the event begins, with the last bus on the Saturday at 20:15 and on the Sunday at 17:15. If you REALLY want to walk, then it’s about an hour walk from Maruyama Koen Station.
