From August 25th to 28th at the Hibiya Park Fountain Plaza, beer enthusiasts and casual sippers alike will gather to celebrate the World Beer Cup 2023 in Chiyoda. If you’ve been thirsting for a taste of international brews, this is where your beer bucket list starts (and gets ticked off).
The event runs alongside the Hibiya Park Bon Odori which is one of Tokyo’s most accessible and fun summer festivals.
Highlights of the World Beer Cup 2023 in Chiyoda
Dubbed as the “United Nations of Beer”, the World Beer Cup 2023 in Chiyoda isn’t just another hop-stop. Located in the heart of Chiyoda—home to numerous embassies—this event champions cultural exchange with every sip.
- Diverse Brews: Collaborating with the myriad of embassies in Chiyoda, you’re guaranteed a pint from every corner of the world. From tangy ales of Europe to the crisp lagers of Asia, get ready to globetrot without leaving Tokyo.
- Food Pairing Fiesta: But what’s a beer without its perfect snack counterpart? Alongside the world’s finest brews, revel in international cuisines and discover the ultimate beer-food pairings.
A quick heads-up for those attending:
- Smoke-free Zone: Breathe easy and savor the aromas; the entire event area is a no-smoking space.
- BYOB? Not Here: While it’s a beer event, please leave your own booze and snacks at home. (There’s plenty to go around here!)
A Quick Note On The Japan Rail Pass Price Hike
The price of the wonderful Japan Rail Pass is going up a massive 62% in October but there’s still time to lock in the old rates if you’re quick. Klook still offers the old prices so if you buy before September 30th you can travel with the old prices until December 28th, 2023.
The Event Venue: Hibiya Park Fountain Plaza
Nestled within Tokyo’s urban hustle and right next to Tokyo Tower, Hibiya Park offers a refreshing oasis. What better place to lay back, enjoy the sun, sip on international brews, and chat with fellow beer enthusiasts?
