This is the first year that we have featured guest Japan craft beer at the event and we are pleased to offer Big Beers brewed by three of our favorite Japanese brewers: Niwa-san of Iwate Kura, Nakanishi-san of Isekadoya and Kaori-san of Minoh. It looks too like we will be fortunate enough to receive special visits by our guest brewers during the weekend.

In addition to the tremendous lineup of Big Beer that will be served all weekend long, Ishikawa-san and the kitchen staff are busy preparing a wonderful selection of special Big Beer-inspired food dishes that promise to terrifically enhance the beer experience. Also, our Nakameguro Taproom has just undergone a bit of a cosmetic facelift as we have added a cozy sofa lounge area around the big screen T.V. and replaced one of our wall counters with small marble tables and comfortable lounge chairs. Come on in and check it out!
