Garapago Racing Kaisei Handmade Beer Front

Garapago Racing The Bottom Line If you’re looking for a bar with amazing views, cheap beers, and well-made food, then Garapago Racing Kaisei Handmade Beer (to give the place its full name) is right up your street – if you don’t mind getting there that is! It was fantastic being able to sit outside on the top deck, with a …

Inkhorn Brewing in Mejiro, Tokyo

Inkhorn Brewing Front

Inkhorn Brewing The Bottom Line Inkhorn Brewing is a decent little brewpub that should be on your radar of places to go when you’re in Tokyo. At the time of writing, Inkhorn Brewing had not started brewing on the premises, but having had a fair amount of their beers, it shouldn’t be much of a change. Moreover, the calm and …

Shared Brewery in Hachioji, Tokyo

Shared Brewery Front

Shared Brewery The Bottom Line Shared Brewery is a decent little place that, while not the most accessible of places, it is definitely worth visiting if you can get there. The beers were a nice surprise, with being well-made to style and also tasty to boot. The whole place is non-smoking, has no table charge, and also has beers to …

Tsukuba Brewing Pebbles in Tsukuba, Ibaraki

Tsukuba Brewing Pebbles Front

Tsukuba Brewing Pebbles The Bottom Line There isn’t much in the Tsukuba area, so Tsukuba Brewing Pebbles has the local brewing scene kind of sewn up really. However, the beers were drinkable, which can be a rarity for a relatively new brewery, well priced, and came in decent sizes. The whole place is non-smoking and has a small outside drinking …

Sakamichi Brewing in Tachikawa, Tokyo

Sakamichi Brewing Front

Sakamichi Brewing The Bottom Line It’s a bit early to comment on the beers from Sakamichi Brewing – at the time of writing they aren’t brewing on their own systems – however the bar itself is worthy of a visit when you’re in the area due to the variety and number of beers on tap for the price. The whole …

Carvaan Craft Beer & Grill in Hanno, Saitama

Carvaan Craft Beer & Grill

Carvaan Craft Beer & Grill The Bottom Line If the main Carvaan up the road is too far for you, or you’re feeling like a quick beer before the train, then popping into Carvaan Craft Beer & Grill is a good choice. It doesn’t have the atmosphere, variety of food on offer, or the views though – and also the …

Carvaan Brewery & Restaurant in Hanno, Saitama

Carvaan Brewery & Restaurant

Carvaan Brewery & Restaurant The Bottom Line If you’re looking for some tasty vegan food, with some solid, well-made beers, and amazing views to boot, then Carvaan Brewery & Restaurant is up your street – figuratively, not literally. It’ll take some time to get to, but it’s worth combining this place with a hike in the area and then coming …

Tokyo Aleworks Station Taproom Yurakucho in Yurakucho, Tokyo

Tokyo Aleworks Station Taproom Yurakucho

Tokyo Aleworks Station Taproom Yurakucho The Bottom Line It’s not often that I highly recommend a bar, but I do with Tokyo Aleworks Station Taproom Yurakucho – but please don’t call it T.A.S.T.Y. Tokyo Aleworks Station Taproom Yurakucho hits all the right spots for me with a craft beer bar – plenty of beers on tap, a decent variety of …

YYG Factory in Chiba, Chiba

YYG Factory Front

YYG Factory The Bottom Line Out of the two locations that YYG have, I preferred this branch over the Yoyogi one. The atmosphere was nice and chilled, there was a decent selection of beers on tap with enough variety to keep everyone happy, even though the glasses were on the small size, and the servings were. However, the food is …

Murmur Biiru Stand in Nikko, Tochigi

Murmur Beer Stand Front・マァマー ビールスタンドフロント

Murmur Biiru Stand The Bottom Line While the beer at Murmur Biiru Stand is not world class, or anything to really rave about, it does offer up a nice little spot to have a couple of beers after a hard day’s walking, while chatting with some friendly locals too. While it is primarily a standing bar, there are some chairs …
