10 days of beer paradise in Roppongi!


posted on September 12, 2016

Belgium, a country the size of Shikoku and a population of 10 million, is the world’s beer paradise counting 168 breweries and 1,500 different beers.

The ‘Belgian Beer Weekend’ traditionally takes place the first weekend of September at the world renowned ‘Grand Place’ in Brussels, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and made its international debut in Japan in 2010.

The ‘Belgian Beer Weekend’ is Japan’s finest beer event, returning to Tokyo for the 7th time with 113 different Belgian beers. The event is not only about beer, but also about great cuisine, amazing live music and a superb atmosphere. This year’s edition is also very special because we celebrate 150 years of friendship between Belgium and Japan!
