Where people congregate, there flows sake and abound smiles. A grand gathering of 38 breweries—21 from Kyushu and 17 from across Japan—will converge in front of Hakata Station.

The event offers a unique sake-tasting experience: patrons can purchase a cup for ¥100 (or opt for a limited-edition original sake cup for ¥700) at any brewery booth and then select their preferred sake to be poured into their cup, paying per pour. Wine and beer enthusiasts can also enjoy their choices, available for purchase in the distinctive styles of individual booths (without cup reuse). Transactions can be handled with either cash or PayPay. Culinary delights will feature, with offerings from Fukuoka’s beloved eateries, including a special guest appearance by “Nagahama no Hiroshi” from the Nagahama food stalls, who will be serving their signature motsunabe, along with Kubocurry, skewered delicacies from Shirasukujira, Hakata-tetsunabe gyoza, and Pizzeria da Gaetano.
