Takadanobaba Beer Shokudo in Takadanobaba, Tokyo

Takadanobaba Beer Shokudo.・高田馬場ビール食堂フロント

Takadanobaba Beer Shokudo The Bottom Line If you’ve missed the last train home and need somewhere to drink, then check out Takadanobaba Beer Shokudo. It also offers up something different in the Takadanobaba area – imported beer alongside domestic craft beer though the prices do leave a lot to be desired considering either side of the station there are cheaper …

Midtown BBQ Yokohama Front・ミッドタウンバーベキュー横浜店前

Midtown BBQ Yokohama The Bottom Line Midtown BBQ Yokohama brings a new challenger to the Kannai / Sakuragicho / Bashamichi area for some craft beer and BBQ meats, and along with a decent range of beers on tap, means you’ll come for the BBQ and stay for the BBQ with some tasty beers as well.

Boulevard Cafe &9 Front・ブールバードカフェ アンドナイン前

Boulevard Cafe &9 The Bottom Line The south end of Kannai is getting a bit busier with some more craft beer places opening, and if you’re in the south end of Kannai and looking for a place for a quick beer, then Boulevard Cafe &9 is one of the best choices to have one or two beers before a baseball …

Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom Front・ライズアンドウィンブルーイングカンパニー カミカツタップルーム店前

Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom The Bottom Line If you really want to try the range of beers from Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom, or you like their beers, then there is no other better place than here, but don’t expect a brewpub or even the atmosphere of one. Rise & Win Brewing Co. Kamikatz Taproom is far more …

Two Fingers Craft Beer Front ・トゥー・フィンガーズ・クラフトビア店前

Two Fingers Craft Beer The Bottom Line If you’re in the area, then Two Fingers Craft Beer is one of our picks in the Ikebukuro area to try some new craft beer in a warm, inviting atmosphere.

Tri Star Beer Restaurant in Kanazawa, Ishikawa

Tri Star Beer Restaurant Front・トライスタービアレストラン前

Tri Star Beer Restaurant The Bottom Line With Kanazawa’s highest number of taps, there is bound to be something on tap that you want to drink, despite the lineup being narrow on the day we went to Tri Star Beer Restaurant, I’d still recommend the place. The whole place is non-smoking and has no table charge; however, even though there is …

Oriental Brewing Korinbo in Kanazawa, Ishikawa

Oriental Brewing Korinbo Front ・オリエンタル・ブルーイング香林坊店前

Oriental Brewing Korinbo The Bottom Line Oriental Brewing Korinbo is a nice little place to pick up some locally made beers at a reasonable price if you can’t get to the main branch in Higashiyama. Unlike the Higashiyama branch, the focus is purely on Oriental Brewing’s beers, though there is plenty of choice in terms of styles. The whole is …

Korinbo Jibiruba in Kanazawa, Ishikawa

Korinbo Jibiruba Front・香林坊ジビルバ前

Korinbo Jibiruba The Bottom Line Korinbo Jibiruba is a bar for craft beer fans with its ever-changing lineup of both regular and harder to find craft beers. While the prices are on the slightly higher side, for some of the rarer beers on tap, they are very good value for money. As with all other places it seems in Kanazawa, …

Owaricho Beer Stand in Kanazawa, Ishikawa

Owaricho Beer Stand Front・尾張町ビヤスタンド前

Owaricho Beer Stand The Bottom Line Owaricho Beer Stand is pretty much the idea kind of standing bar for BeerTengoku – no air of pretentiousness, just beer on tap with some snacks to go. It’s very easy to pop in here for one, but end up staying for more, especially as there is no table charge (it is a standing …

Bakery & Beer Butchers in Hon-Atsugi, Kanagawa

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 …
