Launched in Tokyo in 2010, this Belgian beer extravaganza is expanding to Nagoya this year, with a five-day event held in Hisaya Odori Park.
It's a great chance to try out Belgian beers - seventy-seven different types will be served. You can also enjoy frites, waffles and other typical Belgian culinary offerings, with live performances of Belgian jazz and pop bands helping to set the mood.
Admission is free; beer and food are sold via a ticket system (Y3000 for a "starter kit"). Sponsored by the Belgian Embassy and various beer organizations and importers, the event will run from 4-9pm Thursday (April 26); 11am-9pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday (April 27-29); and 11am-8pm Monday (April 30).
