The capital’s classiest beer festival returns to Tokyo Midtown this month. From April 23-25, Cuisine du Grande Bière (www.beertaster.org) will offer up over 60 beers from 30 different breweries around Japan, which visitors can enjoy alongside the gourmet food buffet provided by Dean & Deluca. The ticket price (¥4,100 adv/¥5,900 with ¥2,000 food ticket) includes a 50ml commemorative tasting glass that you can fill up as many times as you like. Be warned that to protect the elegant atmosphere, entrance is limited to just 1,800 people per day—though really, what says “elegant” better than a mosh pit?
