A friend in Tokyo recently let me know that on Saturday November 29th BrewDog and Mikkeller are meeting up in Harajuku for a two hour all you can drink event. All you can drink craft beer for 3,000 yen is a really good deal, especially in Tokyo. The event is being held at the Sad Cafe in Harajuku, and there are two identical sessions. One starting at 1:00 PM and one at 4:30 PM, both going for two hours with the same beers available. It seems like there will be some special seasonal beers in the line up. More details are available here.
I like to see both BrewDog and Mikkeller making further efforts in the Japanese marketplace. While domestic craft beer is steadily improving, I hope that more foreign competition and examples will help the overall quality increase even faster. I am going to try to go to this event, and of course report back on all the new beers I try. If you know of any interesting craft beer events in Tokyo or otherwise, please let me know!
