– Ground floor brewery and 2nd floor bar. Brewery looks new and shiny, but not sure how long it has been going. Bar area has a counter for six, and one for four near the window along with tables for eight. Feels. Little like it is going for a businessman kind of clientele, but honestly have no idea why I thought that, apart from gut feeling.
– Eight taps of beer, three of their own offerings and five imports, (mainly US stuff with one Australian thrown in). Served in two sizes, regular (350ml) and small (260ml). Their own beers are priced at ¥800 and ¥650 and the imports are ¥1000 and ¥750. Styles were very much towards the easy drinking end of the spectrum (pils, pale ale, wheat, IPA), perhaps chosen with a mind to going well with the food.
– No cover charge, no smoking (there’s a separate room at the back for smoking which doesn’t seem to interfere with the bar, but given that it’s a Yakitori place, it has a bit of smoke from the cooking) and a smidge of daytime opening.
Clearly I’m not their target customer as I can’t eat any of the food, but I think this would be a good combination. The serving sizes are a little smaller than usual but I think this is reflected in the pricing. And as far as I know, this is the only place you can drink their beer, so worth a visit if you want to tick that off.
