Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom The Bottom Line

Kamikatz Taproom, or you like their beers, then there is no other better place than here, but don’t expect a brewpub or even the atmosphere of one. Rise & Win Brewing Co.

Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom The Full Review
Despite being based in Tokushima, Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom opened up a taproom in the heart of Tokyo back in March 2016 – either with some serious investors behind them or some major sales from their beers. While the area the taproom is not in Tokyo’s most expensive areas to work or live in, it does come close.
Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom is located between Akabanebashi and Kamiyacho stations, right behind Tokyo Tower. There is space for about 35 people inside, with 6 counter seats and tables around the side for about 30 people. The whole place is non-smoking both inside and out, and also has no table charge – ticking off most of the right boxes for us at BeerTengoku. There was also a Wifi connection available when we went, but we’re unsure if it was from Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom or from an office nearby. Like the brewery in Kamikatsu, the majority of the bar uses reclaimed wood or metals, further pushing the “zero waste” concept that runs through the company.
There are eight taps of beer on at Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom, with most of them dedicated to in-house beers. There are also guest beers on from time-to-time but don’t let those big tanks behind the bar fool you – none of the beer is brewed on-site, instead it’s shipped up from Kamikatsu – a far bit of waste going on there? The beers come in three sizes: half pint (290ml) from ¥650, three-quarters pint (354ml) from ¥800, and pint (568ml) from ¥1,200. Prices do include tax, and there is also a four beer 120ml tasting flight for ¥1,000. Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom is also one of the few places that have growlers as well for takeaway, though we didn’t catch the prices.
The food at Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom is based on BBQ and grilled meats, so vegetarians should try getting food elsewhere. However, it’s not your usual American style BBQ, but more traditional with meats grilled over coals. There are also some fried foods such as chips and more simple meals such as curry rice too. The menus are mostly in Japanese, though with pictures so it’s not too hard to order something you want.
