One-Year Nomihodai: Restaurant Offers All-You-Can-Drink for 12 Months

One of the first phrases you learn when you arrive in Japan, along with “thank you”, “excuse me” and “hello”, is “all-you-can-drink” – nomihodai. Until you do, you’re going to be paying around ten American dollars a pint, but when you stumble upon the glorious, life-giving nomihodai, you find there’s a cheaper way. A way in which you can usually drink for two or three hours for twenty dollars, sometimes even as low as ten.

Pushing the boundaries of nomihodai is a restaurant in Shinbashi named Brasserie Beer Boulevard, which is currently offering a limited number of “one-year passports” to drink as much as you want (which many of you will no doubt read “as much as you can”). The drinks list isn’t just Hoppy and weak cocktails either (like some sneaky izakayas), it includes Asahi Super Dry, Super Dry Premium and Super Dry Black.

The passport costs ¥29,800 ($280), which means if you can drink more than 60 standard-sized beers over the year you’re basically making money. In fact, if our calculations are correct, the more you drink after that, the more profit you’re making.

Just don’t forget to factor in the inevitable hospital fees.
