In the summertime, Odori Park in Sapporo changes into the Beer Garden. This year the beer garden runs from July 22nd to August 16th. Each beer company has its own block – Sapporo, Kirin, Suntory, Asahi, German Beer, World Beer. Last week after Japanese class, Ted and I stopped in for a Sapporo Beer. Even though it was just early afternoon, Odori Park was packed with beer drinkers!
