This Saturday, 11am-6pm, Kyoto kicks off its bi-annual craft beer festival in the Zest underground shopping arcade. The mini festival features all four Kyoto craft breweries and a few guests from the region (Minoh, Zig-Zag), as well as local food vendors, live music, and the Japan Beer Times (hawking our shirts, bags, etc). It’s generally a good time. After the fest, you could train down to Beer Belly Tenma in Osaka, where the Masaji Beer Project launches. What a day for craft beer!
