The Beerwalk - Japantown San Jose

December 10, 2016 2:00PM - 6:00PM at Jack's Bar & Lounge

The 7th Japantown Beerwalk in San Jose is Santa Claus & Christmas themed for this edition!

Saturday, December 10, 2016, 2pm - 6pm

Tons of Christmas shopping discounts. Santa Claus photo opp. Dress Festive!

Tucked minutes away from Downtown San Jose sits the historical Japantown business district. Explore the unique boutique shops, art studios, and great restaurants within the community, all while sipping on great beers and enjoying the social enthusiasm of shopkeepers and beer lovers alike!

The Beerwalk was created beyond the idea of sampling great beers, but rather to provide the outlet for our community to come together to explore the neighborhoods and small businesses, which help keep the Bay Area great.

Early Bird Tickets - $30
Week of Tickets - $35
