Uchida Biyori in Hinodecho, Yokohama

Uchida Biyori Front・内田日和フロント

Uchida Biyori The Bottom Line I liked the atmosphere at Uchida Biyori – it’s relaxed and fun – but it’s also on the pricy side.

Craft Beer & Chips Guide Front

For those that have been following and reading BeerTengoku for a while now, know that we LOVE our chips.

Bakery & Beer Butchers Front 1・ベーカリーアンドビアブッチャーズ店前1

Bakery & Beer Butchers The Bottom Line While Bakery & Beer Butchers is not an official taproom for Sankt Gallen, it’s a worthy visit for going to try the whole range of Sankt Gallen beers and some tasty bread and burgers. The prices are cheaper than expected, with no table charge, but tax is not included in the prices. Moreover, the …
