Deguchiya in Nakameguro, Tokyo

Deguchiya Front

It’s not often I leave the bottle shops of Le Collier and Liquors Hasegawa behind for different climes, but I had heard good things about Deguchiya in Naka-Meguro. It’s located a ten-minute walk from Naka-Meguro station, perhaps in the wrong direction as it goes away from the Baird Naka-Meguro Taproom and Hatos Bar too, so you’re going a long way to …

Sagamiya Liquor Store in Kamakura

While wandering Komachi-dori trying to find craft beer bars in Kamakura, we came across Sagamiya Bottle Shop about two-thirds of the way up the street. It was getting late and Joe and myself were getting thirsty – walking is hard work, you know – and we stopped in to pick up some beer. Sagamiya stocks nihonshu / sake as well …

Liquors Hasegawa Logo

Liquors Hasegawa is a shop that I’ve heard of in the past though been hesitant to visit as the Yaesu exit at Tokyo station scares me.

Rest assured, they are all the same shop and specialise in selling craft beer from around the world and that includes Japan. World Beer Market first started out as a shop in …

Craft Liquors

Craft Liquors is an online shop that sells Japanese craft beer more from the Kansai and Kyushu regions of Japan. They do sell some beers from other parts of Japan, but as Craft Liquors is based in Tokyo, most of their stock comes from near Tokyo. However, some of the smaller craft beer breweries such as Hideji Beer and Hiryoyuki …

Closed: Le Collier in Tokyo Station

Editor Note: Le Collier has closed down. This review has been kept for posterity’s sake A bricks and mortar store at last! Le Collier! Whilst we like having our beers delivered to our homes cold and safely packaged up on a Saturday morning, once in a while, we do have to venture outside to find some places that sell beers, …

GoodBeer

For those that have been out and about in Shibuya, you have probably come across Good Beer Faucets, located about 10 minutes from the Hachiko exit of Shibuya station. If you haven’t been, what’s your excuse? Luckily enough, the shop also has an online store where you can purchase those beers you think you may have drunk on your last outing …
