Kura Kura Ji-Beer House

Kura Kura Ji-Beer House One Paragraph Review Kura Kura Ji-Beer House does its job well but with other bars in the area offering a wider variety of Japanese craft beers at cheaper prices for larger sizes, it has got its work cut out. The range of craft beers is comparatively safe and are well looked after though, and with it …

Craft Beer Server Land in Iidabashi, Tokyo

Craft Beer Server Land One Paragraph Review If you like cheap beer, and can drink more than three beers, then Craft Beer Server Land is a definite “go-to” place on our list. The inclusion of tax in the prices means that the beers are some of the cheapest going in Tokyo; however, the 380yen table charge means those beers are a …

Craftman Gotanda in Gotanda, Tokyo

Craftman Gotanda Front

Craftman Gotanda One Paragraph Review With 31 taps, Craftman Gotanda has something for everyone – if it wasn’t for the sly charges that aren’t mentioned before you step in.

Living Craft Beer Bar Front

Living Craft Beer Bar One Paragraph Review It’s hard to really recommend Living Craft Beer Bar unless you’re in the area and desperate for a craft beer. It’s expensive for the beers it offers, regardless of the addition of tax and the varying prices didn’t seem to make any sense at all. While the food is delicious, especially the pizza, if …

DevilCraft Kanda Logo

  This review of Devilcraft Kanda has been a long time coming – not because I’m lazy or anything like that but that’s it always booked out whenever I want to go. I guess if I went by myself, then I could get a seat at the counter on the first floor, but Devilcraft Kanda feels like it should be a group …
