Best of The Bunch: Music

Music and Beer

We’re heading back to Kanto for this one but hear us out – sometimes you want to listen to some music as you drink your pint – loud enough to drown out the inane chatter of a drinker talking about the difference between an IPA and a double IPA (heard it!), someone talking to their date about cheese (heard that …


Kanto’s Best Drinking Areas

If you’re a Patreon, then you already have access to personalised guides for ages here, but here’s a more general guide about areas for Kanto and some standout bars that come highly recommended.

Best of The Bunch: Closed


They say you should never reminiscence on old loves, beers change, breweries develop new beers, and bars close. Since BeerTengoku has been up and online for over 6 years – an age in blogs it seems – we’ve seen a fair few close.

Hitsuji Miyagawacho in Noge, Yokohama

Hitsuji Miyakawacho Front・ひつじ宮川町店フロント

Hitsuji Miyagawacho The Bottom Line Like it’s forebearer, Hitsuji Miyagawacho has so much going for it – a nice setting, relaxed atmosphere, with some good food on the menu, but then falls to the same problems as the first branch in that the dread table charge and prices not including tax rear their ugly heads. If you don’t mind that, …

Quays Pacific Bar & Grill in Minatomirai, Yokohama

Quays Pacific Bar and Grill Front・キーズ パシフィック グリル フロント

Quays Pacific Bar & Grill The Bottom Line Quays Pacific Bar & Grill is pricey – no two ways about it. If you’ve got the cash to splash, and the legs to walk, then make a move over to Quays Pacific Bar & Grill. While the beers are well-made, (almost) nothing is really worth almost ¥1,500 for a US pint. …


Brunton’s in Ishikawacho, Kanagawa

Brunton's Front ・ブラントンズフロント

Brunton’s The Bottom Line It’s great to see a place styled like Brunton’s, more in tune with its surroundings and with some character, and I wanted to like Brunton’s – but the prices for the beer and food left me feeling a bit like I was paying for the style of the bar, rather than actually for the beers.
