No trip to Hokkaido is complete without a taste of the prefecture's best-loved drink, and where better to sample a few pints than Sapporo. With endless cosy bars and brewpubs, craft-beer enthusiasts should put a Sapporo pub-crawl at the top of their boozy bucket lists.
On the banks of the Sossei River, minutes' walk from Nijo Market, Moon & Sun is one of Sapporo's best brewpubs – serving a broad menu of craft beer brewed on-site.
Laid-back and brightly lit, Moon Sun Brewing welcomes visitors in from the chilly streets, serving ten beers made in-house alongside a rotation of guest beers, selected by some of the city's friendliest bar staff.
Offering a comprehensive guide to the various merits of each beer, get a feel for what you like with a three or five-glass tasting set, served with a plate of Sun & Moon's popular french fries, made using Hokkaido potatoes.
