Pint of Origin


Asia (Japan)

Benchies will be showcasing the Asia Region with exclusive Japanese beers on tap, never before-seen cans in our fridges and delicious izakaya/fusion food to pair with your pint!

We have fresh, cold-freighted kegs direct from the land of the rising sun brewed by the following breweries:

  • Black Tide Brewing (Kesennuma) - 14th on Untappd in Japan
  • Teenage Brewing (Saitama) - 6th on Untappd in Japan
  • Totopia Brewing (Nagakute) - 5th on Untappd in Japan
  • Uchu Brewing (Yamanashi) - 1st on Untappd in Japan
  • Vertere Brewing (Okutama) - 11th on Untappd in Japan
  • West Coast Brewing (Shizuoka) - 3rd on Untappd in Japan

For many of these breweries this is their first time being available for purchase in Australia!

Benchies will have the beers available for individual purchase or in a tasting paddle and will be doing daily merch giveaways throughout the Pint of Origin event.

Of course, we will also have beer-pairing food available from our critically acclaimed izakaya fusion kitchen :)
