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 …

LaLaChai in Hatagaya, Tokyo

LaLaChai Front

LaLaChai The Bottom Line Hatagaya might not be on your list of places to go for craft beer, but LaLaChai should definitely be on your list you like Thai food or craft beer as it excels in both those areas. The atmosphere and friendliness of the staff was relaxing but not to the point of being annoying. The beers were …

Beer O’Clock in Chiba, Chiba

Beer O'Clock Front

Beer O’Clock The Bottom Line If you don’t mind paying a lot for your beer, then you’ll be happy at Beer O’Clock, but it’s hard to recommend when thinking about the price alone. While the prices are high, they do include tax, and there is a decent selection of beers on tap. The whole place is non-smoking, has no table …

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 …

Makuhari Brewery in Makuhari, Chiba

Makuhari Brewery Front

Makuhari Brewery The Bottom Line If you live, or shopping, in the vicinity of Makuhari Brewery, then you’ve got somewhere to get beer from, but personally I wouldn’t travel this far to the middle of nowhere to come here. Makuhari Brewery does offer up a nice relaxing atmosphere for some family time with food and beers, and a cozy coffee …

Craft Beer Tap Fam333 in Sendagaya, Tokyo

Craft Beer Tap333 Front

Craft Beer Tap Fam333 The Bottom Line I came here not expecting much but I ended up being pleasantly surprised – a warm, welcoming atmosphere, coupled with some top notch pours; however, the prices do leave a lot to be desired. While Craft Beer Tap Fam333 may not have the widest range of taps, there at least is some variety …

800 Degrees Craft Brew Stand in Yokohama, Kanagawa

800 Degrees Craft Brew Stand・エイトハンドレッドディグリーズクラフトブリュースタンド

800 Degrees Craft Brew Stand The Bottom Line If you’re looking for a place with some great views of the Yokohama skyline and some local craft beers on tap, then 800 Degrees Craft Brew Stand is right up you street. However, those are pretty much the only reasons to recommend this place over others in Yokohama. The beers are expensive …

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 …

Craft Beer Shop Doppo in Okayama, Okayama

Craft Beer Shop Doppo・クラフトビアショップ独歩

Craft Beer Shop Doppo The Bottom Line If you don’t mind drinking in food court with screaming kids and stressed out families, then Craft Beer Shop Doppo is a top-notch little spot to get some early beers in when you’re in Okayama. As you’re also able to get beers to takeaway, it’s a good place to pick up some local …
