Odaiba Oktoberfest

The best German beer in Tokyo

Late Apr
Early May
Venue: Symbol Promenade Park Central Square When: Late Apr - Early May 2023

Sick of the usual Suntory Draught? Bored of Sapporo Classic? Craving something different from your favorite amber colored brew? Look no further than the Odaiba Oktoberfest! The Oktoberfest event circuit takes multiple times per year, with the Odaiba edition promising a beer and sausage extravaganza featuring some of the most famous beers from Germany.

Lick your lips as the sensation of Erdinger, Kostritzer, Krombacher, Paulaner and many others give your taste-buds something to write home about. There will also be no shortage of bratwurst, blutwurst, bockwurst, bergenwurst, and knackwurst, enough to confuse even the most experienced sausage lover. If all that isn't enough to convince you, there will also be a great showing of Oktoberfest themed dress to tempt the eyes.

Odaiba Oktoberfest is held annually at Symbol Promenade Koen, Odaiba. Admission is free and expect to pay around 1,000 yen per beer.

A little while ago i began exploring the world. I started in Japan, and after 29 countries of amazing adventures, i find myself back in Japan fully absorbed in its culture, its people and its beauty.

I'm definitely not keen on warm beer either, but if it was available in a moderate-sized serving and I was caught up in the Oktoberfest atmosphere I'd probably try it.

You're right Wouter, sounds like a better system and I would have preferred smaller glass sizes so I could try a few more different beers without feeling like I was about to explode. It's an expensive outing if you're a keen beer drinker.

The problem with this event is that the beers come in large glasses, and are therefore a bit more expensive. I went to the Belgian Beer Festival a few weeks ago in Roppongi, and the glasses were more moderate, so smaller quantities, so cheaper, and gives you a chance to try out more varieties. You pay in coins which you buy at a booth, 1 coin equals 200 yen. There were 2 coin beers as well, but most of them were at 3-4 coins, and there were some for 5 coins.

I'm not really a fan of warm beer Michael. The problem with this event is that there's too much to chose from! I did like the cloudy wheat beer though.

Did you happen to try any varieties that are served warm and if so did you enjoy it?
