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 …

Carvaan Brewery & Restaurant in Hanno, Saitama

Carvaan Brewery & Restaurant

Carvaan Brewery & Restaurant The Bottom Line If you’re looking for some tasty vegan food, with some solid, well-made beers, and amazing views to boot, then Carvaan Brewery & Restaurant is up your street – figuratively, not literally. It’ll take some time to get to, but it’s worth combining this place with a hike in the area and then coming …

Tokyo Aleworks Station Taproom Yurakucho in Yurakucho, Tokyo

Tokyo Aleworks Station Taproom Yurakucho

Tokyo Aleworks Station Taproom Yurakucho The Bottom Line It’s not often that I highly recommend a bar, but I do with Tokyo Aleworks Station Taproom Yurakucho – but please don’t call it T.A.S.T.Y. Tokyo Aleworks Station Taproom Yurakucho hits all the right spots for me with a craft beer bar – plenty of beers on tap, a decent variety of …

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 …

Shiokaze BrewStand in Soga, Chiba

Shiokaze BrewStand Front

Shiokaze BrewStand The Bottom Line In spite of travelling for almost 90 minutes to get here, I was pleasantly surprised by Shiokaze BrewStand and would happily travel again to get here. It ticks off everything I want in a bar – a decent amount of taps with enough variety on them, cheap prices that include tax, and some decent music …

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 …

Ryuda in Yoyogi, Tokyo

Ryuda Front

Ryuda The Bottom Line If you have plenty of money to spare, and you’re looking for somewhere fancy to impress someone, a craft beer bar may not be your first choice. However, with Ryuda, you can pay a fortune for some beers that you can find cheaper less than 5 minutes walk away, and also get some food – while …

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 …
