Today a place that I was going to save and add to the next digest post, but maybe feels like it deserves a post of its own. There’s not a great deal to say though, so it will be very brief and all condensed into one paragraph. Maybe this is a good way to go in the future for places like this. Here, concisely, is what you need to know about Craft x Craft.
Seems like it used to be an Italian restaurant and perhaps its focus shifted slightly to include craft beer. Still very much food focused but has six taps of Japanese craft at VERY reasonable prices. Don’t expect wild stuff here, but it’s a really fun place to drink in the daytime and they had a special deal fron 4-7 where you can get some nibbles with your beer and the value is even better! Decent sized ‘full’ for ¥880. The half seemed quite a bit smaller and was ¥550. As they only have six taps, I’d stick with the full size. Few counter seats downstairs, a couple of tables on the terrace (in the alley), and some more tables upstairs, I believe. Akabane in the daytime is a very fun place to booze!
