Pitman’s in Kiyosumi, Tokyo

Pitman's Front

Pitman’s The Bottom Line Pitman’s has the potential to do well – nice outside drinking area, non-smoking, plenty of decent food on the menu, and some good beers from August Beer Club, as well as in-house brewery too – but at the time of writing, it’s hard to recommend it due to the weird opening hours and not always having …

Tap x Tap Front

Tap x Tap The Bottom Line Tap x Tap is good little find in the back streets of Kanda, though with the recent opening of Craft Beer Market Kanda encroaching in on its area, it’s going to be tough to see how it succeeds as it is no longer the cheapest craft beer bar in the area. However, the atmosphere …

Roti's House Harvestmoon Front

Roti’s House Harvestmoon One Paragraph Review If you want to try the Harvestmoon range of beers on tap, then there is no better place than at the source, so combine the Disneyland day with a few craft beers.

Craft Beer Kitchen Jiyugaoka Front

Craft Beer Kitchen Jiyugaoka One Paragraph Review If you want some cheap midday beers and only if you’re in the area, Craft Beer Kitchen Jiyugaoka is a reasonable choice, though make sure you’ve eaten beforehand.

Beer Bar Camiya in Kichijoji

Beer Bar Camiya Front

Beer Bar Camiya One Paragraph Review Beer Bar Camiya may be a long ten-minute walk from Kichijoji station but it’s a walk that’s well worth it for some rarer beers, especially if you pick up a walking beer from Craft Beer Market near the station.

On The Table by Goodbeer Faucets in Daimon, Tokyo

On The Table Front

On The Table by Goodbeer Faucets One Paragraph Review On The Table is a distinct change from the GoodBeer Faucets range of bars so don’t go expecting a bar. With only one size of beer too there isn’t much choice for the milder drinker but the long happy hour until 7pm gets our vote of approval. Outside of that, the …


Towa The World’s End Craft Beer and Sake and Soba in Ueno, Tokyo

Towa - The World's End

Irish pubs. Dime a dozen in Tokyo and when I heard of Towa  The World’s End Irish Pub I was immediately put off. Expensive pints of beer in a faux-Irish pub that is supposed to resemble something that could found in Dublin. Yet I had the wrong place as I was looking for Towa The World’s End Craft Beer and Sake and …
