Also if you want to taste and buy fully imported Japanese beer in Perth, (i.e. made in Japan etc), then come buy Yamaguchi beer from Yamaguchi prefecture in southern Japan, or Baeren Japanese craft beer from Iwate in the north. New this year, chocolate beers, yuzu wit and more.
Entry is free but if you want to sample what’s on offer you will need to purchase a ticket. If you are bringing a 'driver' then they don't have to pay to get in. And there is food and soft drink for them to enjoy there.
How it works
When you go to the booking page for the particular day you want to attend (Saturday or Sunday) you will be given a choice of tasting cards to purchase. Since this is primarily a sake (or more correctly ‘nihonshu’) event we hope you will purchase a sake tasting card. This gives you up to 10 tastes of around 10-15mls each.
But we know that if you are coming with friends they may not share your good taste in Japanese beverages so this year for the first time we have expanded our range to include Japanese craft beer and cider and shochu. We will also have Japanese whisky tasting cards.
So when you go to the bookings page please choose between the tickets for sake (nihonshu) or Japanese craft beer.
We are excited regarding the craft beer because we will be introducing 3 different chocolate based beers from Baeren including a vintage chocolate beer which can be aged.
