A craft beer festival in Saitama was held at the Super Arena for a week, and we decided one afternoon to go check it out. Although we’ve tried a few craft beers here and there in Japan, usually they are only available in small areas around each brewery. So we were really excited to find some.

One of my favorite beers, Coedo, from Kawagoe. They sell two types at a grocery store somewhat near us, but it is still always a treat. And they don’t sell my favorite kind, so it was nice to get it here!

And by the end of the night, our leaning tower of beer garnered a lot of attention!

So that was fun. Might have to make that an annual thing!
