Best of Bunch: Views

In the long six years that BeerTengoku that has been around, we’ve clocked up over 330 visits to bars across Japan – only covering about one-quarter of what is out there. It’s a long way to go, and at this rate, will take us another 18 years of drinking, cycling, and travelling on trains, planes, and automobiles to get to …

Shizu Bar in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

Shizu Bar Front・しずバルフロント

Shizu Bar The Bottom Line Shizu Bar is a nice little place to sit down, have some tasty food, and a couple of quiet beers before jumping on the shinkansen home. While the tap list might not excite hardened craft beer hunters, there’s something for everyone on the menu at reasonable prices though they do not include tax. The staff …

Aoi Brewing Cafe in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

Aoi Brewing Cafe Front・アオイブルーイングカフェフロント

Aoi Brewing Cafe The Bottom Line The only thing that Aoi Brewing Cafe offers over other places in the area is its in the vicinity of the station and that it is open from 8am, perfect for the (early) morning drinker. Besides that, it’s got the usual requirements in a bar – free WiFi, some English menus, takeaway beers, and …

Craft Beer Station in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

Craft Beer Station Front・クラフトビアステーションフロント

Craft Beer Station The Bottom Line If all bars were as friendly and as warming as Craft Beer Station then I’d never be able to leave. While the prices are on the more expensive side for Shizuoka they do thankfully include tax in the price, the atmosphere and generosity of both the bar man and the other customers could not …

Standout Coffee & Beer in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

Standout Front・スタンドアウトフロント

Standout Coffee & Beer The Bottom Line With the plethora of craft beer bars in Shizuoka, it’s hard to standout (excuse the pun), but the varied tap list and beer flight option help Standout Coffee & Beer standout a little from the crowd. Besides that, and the option of Mexican food helps make it a worthwhile visit here. The whole …

Hug Hop in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

Hug Hop Front・ハグ ホップフロント

Hug Hop The Bottom Line Hug Hop has pretty much everything I look for in a craft beer bar – lots of taps with a good variety of beers on tap and also no table charge but unfortunately the prices do not include tax. Thethe friendly, chilled out atmosphere and tasty food (the gapao was amazing) should be the effort …

West Coast Brewing Taproom in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

West Coast Brewing Taproom Front・ウエストコーストブルーイング タップルームフロント

West Coast Brewing Taproom The Bottom Line While it may be some way from the city centre of Shizuoka, there’s nothing better than getting some good beers at the source and that’s exactly what you get at West Coast Brewing Taproom – plus the option of being able to get some cans to take away too. It’s fun being able …

Aoi Beer Stand in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

Aoi Beer Stand Front・アオイビールスタンドフロント

Aoi Beer Stand The Bottom Line If you’re looking for a place to pop in for a quick beer throughout the day and don’t mind a limited choice on tap, then Aoi Beer Stand is right for you. It’s highly unlikely you’ll stay here past one or two drinks, mainly because of the lack of food and space really; however, …

Twelve in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

Twelve Front・トゥウェルブフロント

Twelve The Bottom Line If Twelve isn’t on your list of places to go to in Shizuoka for craft beer, then it should be as it offers up the best lineup of beers when we went and I was happy to go back again the next day for some more. However, if you’re a non-Seattle Seahawks fan, or one of …
