Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn 2016
The Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn 2016 is the sixteenth one in what is now a biannual event held in the vicinity of the Saitama Super Arena; once in spring and also an autumn event too. Featuring over fifty craft beer companies and bars from Japan and overseas, the Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn is a six-day event, from the 15th September to the 19th September with plenty of choice for everyone.

With beers starting from ¥300 in price for roughly small sizes of about 250ml, and ¥500 the most common starting price for medium-sized classes. There are also craft beer tastings sets as well for customers to try from most of the breweries as well, that start from ¥1000 for 4 different beers. Some of the breweries, for example Outsider Brewing, Nasu Kougen Beer, and Shonan Beer have produced some special beers that can only be tried at the Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn. Even more incentive to go, as if you needed it.

Moreover, there is also a bottle shop where you can pick up some of the beers to take home with you. Be careful though – after last year’s event, we ended up breaking a couple of bottles after consuming a tad too much beer.

The Keyaki Beer Festival Autumn really should be an event anyone with an interest in Japanese craft beer attends. We attended last year’s event and the only problem we had was that the event is held inside, so some of the spring outside magic is lost.
