Beer Garage 87 in Irie, Yokohama

Beer Garage 87 Front

Beer Garage 87 The Bottom Line While the beer list at Beer Garage 87 is interesting, and the owner is generally one of the most friendly and interesting bar owners I’ve met on my BeerTengoku travels, neither of those points can save the fact that as Beer Garage 87 is in the middle of nowhere, you have to have some special reason …

Cube Bar in Kawasaki, Kanagawa

Cube Bar Front

Cube Bar The Bottom Line It’s tough to recommend Cube Bar at all – high prices that don’t include tax, a bizarre “service charge” system of 13% means the more you drink, the more extra charges you have to pay in the end, and it’s all smoking too. For those two reasons, I’d say avoid the place if you can. The …

On The Marks in Kawasaki, Kanagawa

On The Marks Front

On The Marks The Bottom Line On The Marks isn’t your usual place to drink beers but it’s the best choice in Kawasaki for some decent craft beer at the time of writing. The prices are towards the upper end of reasonable, but with tax included and no table charge, they’re bearable – just. The atmosphere at On The Marks is …

Century Break in Fujisawa, Kanagawa

Century Break Outside 1

Century Break The Bottom Line If you’re in the area, then Century Break is definitely worth popping into for a couple of quiet beers. It’s got a decent range of beers on at reasonable prices which all include tax. Moreover, there is no table charge and the whole bar is non-smoking as well. The food menu is also quite varied …

Jingle Beer & Dining in Yokohama, Kanagawa

Jingle Beer & Dining Front

Jingle Beer & Dining The Bottom Line While I wanted to like Jingle Beer & Dining, the fact that it is fully smoking and a table charge of ¥432 per person means it’s an overall thumbs down for this place. While the beer list is to be commended as there were some different beers on there, what was supposed to be a …

Thrashzone Meatballs in Kannai, Yokohama

Thrashzone Meatballs

Thrashzone Meatballs One Paragraph Review If you’re looking for more of Thrashzone in Yokohama, then having Thrashzone Meatballs here will sort you out perfectly. It doesn’t offer much compared to the other bars in the area besides heavy metal music and some high ABV beers. With no table charge and taxes included in the price, along with cash on delivery, then …

Noge West End in Noge, Yokohama

Noge West End Front

Noge West End The Bottom Line Noge West End is El Nubichinom what should have turned out like. The former is a nice little sitting bar, with some good, well-conditioned beers on tap at reasonable prices, in a very chilled out old Japanese izakaya shop. It’s worth a visit if you’re in the area for some of rarer beers we’ve …

Lambic in Hon-Atsugi, Kanagawa

Lambic Front

Lambic One Paragraph Review It’s a shame that Lambic is so far away from the train station but needs must. It’s a great little bar with a fun chilled out environment with good beers on tap – what more could you want from a bar? I’ve long been accustomed to beer glasses in Japan being smaller than the UK sizes …

484 Cafe in Fujisawa, Kanagawa

484 Cafe

484 Cafe One Paragraph Review I wanted to like 484 Cafe, I really did but it simply isn’t worth trekking out to Fujisawa for a beer, especially as the beer on tap, Baird Beer, can be found for cheaper and larger sizes elsewhere across Japan. Moreover, the fact that it isn’t advertised as Baird Beer either was disappointing. The food was …

Apollo Company in Sakuragicho, Yokohama

Apollo Company Front

Apollo Company One Paragraph Review I wanted to like Apollo Company very much – it had a nice relaxed atmosphere and tasty food, but the beer sizes are too small for the price and there was way too much head on the beer too. The bar is also fully smoking so give up trying to enjoy the food and beers as well. …
