Craft Beer & Pizza Okura Brewery in Tenjin, Fukuoka

Craft Beer & Pizza Okura Brewery Front・地ビール&ピッツァ オークラブルワリーフロント

Craft Beer & Pizza Okura Brewery The Bottom Line Go to Craft Beer & Pizza Okura Brewery for the pizza, but the beer was pretty underwhelming to be honest after the ones I had at Fukuoka Craft. That’s not to say that Craft Beer & Pizza Okura Brewery is a bad place, it does what it’s supposed to do but …

Fukuoka Craft in Fukuoka, Kyushu

Fukuoka Craft Front・フクオカクラフトフロント

World Beer Terminal Kaen The Bottom Line I was pleasantly surprised with World Beer Terminal Kaen – it had everything I wanted in a bar, and I would happily go back there again, just to sit on the huge balcony area and enjoy the sun setting down in the distance.

Shizu Bar in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

Shizu Bar Front・しずバルフロント

Shizu Bar The Bottom Line Shizu Bar is a nice little place to sit down, have some tasty food, and a couple of quiet beers before jumping on the shinkansen home. While the tap list might not excite hardened craft beer hunters, there’s something for everyone on the menu at reasonable prices though they do not include tax. The staff …

Standout Coffee & Beer in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

Standout Front・スタンドアウトフロント

Standout Coffee & Beer The Bottom Line With the plethora of craft beer bars in Shizuoka, it’s hard to standout (excuse the pun), but the varied tap list and beer flight option help Standout Coffee & Beer standout a little from the crowd. Besides that, and the option of Mexican food helps make it a worthwhile visit here. The whole …

West Coast Brewing Taproom in Shizuoka, Shizuoka

West Coast Brewing Taproom Front・ウエストコーストブルーイング タップルームフロント

West Coast Brewing Taproom The Bottom Line While it may be some way from the city centre of Shizuoka, there’s nothing better than getting some good beers at the source and that’s exactly what you get at West Coast Brewing Taproom – plus the option of being able to get some cans to take away too. It’s fun being able …

Craftrock Brewpub in Nihonbashi, Tokyo

Craftrock Brewpub Front・クラフトロック ブリューパブフロント

Craftrock Brewpub The Bottom Line Usually we give a new brewery or brewpub some time before trying out their beers, and Craftrock Brewpub has the potential to do well, as long as they introduce some variety in their beers and improve them – hopefully with some feedback they will. The bar itself is a bit of style over substance too …

Nihonbashi Brewery in Ningyocho, Tokyo

Nihonbashi Brewery Front・にほんばしブルワリーフロント

Nihonbashi Brewery The Bottom Line If you’re going to call yourself a brewery and have you own beer on tap, make sure you have plenty of your own beer on tap – and that was the biggest problem with Nihonbashi Brewery, besides some small niggles that you can probably guess. The place promises so much – a great chilled out …
