Visit waters-takeshiba.jp for access and follow them at facebook.com/ACBEjapan to learn more about the great selection of American breweries participating.

Earlier this year, Yokohama’s TDM 1874 brewery opened the Shimokitazawa Taproom adding another place to enjoy their award-winning brews besides their brewpub location in Tokaichiba, Yokohama. The Shimokitazawa Taproom will be hosting a Craft Beer Festival slated for Nov. 4-6 with other selected breweries.

Former Baird brewmaster Chris Poel has been busy at his Shiokaze BrewLab.

Some great craft beer from the mainland is making its way to Okinawa Island in November, when The Okinawa Bottle Shop opens up. The small shop in Yomitan will feature selected fresh craft beer from around Japan, including local Okinawa beers, as well as showcase other selected craft beer, cider and refreshments. The location in the center of Okinawa Island means fresh beer is never far away. Check for updates and the official opening date at okinawabottleshop.com.
