151L Shop

151L is an online store that specialises in selling both domestic and imported craft beer.

Chouseiya Front

Chouseiya first came to our attention on Facebook when they popped up with a wide range of beers – some that are notoriously hard to get hold off.

Craft Beer Base in Ōyodominami, Osaka

Craft Beer Base Front

Craft Beer Base, which happens to be the first in the chain of bottle shops and bars in Osaka, could easily be mistaken for being a workshop or simply someone’s house when you’re in the area. Situated on the backstreets of Ōyodominami, Craft Beer Base is perhaps Osaka’s most popular, though not the biggest, bottle shop in the area, offering a wide …
