A relative newcomer to the Osaka beer scene. Thereís just the four taps but usually something noteworthy to try. The real draw is whats sitting in the cellar. Amazing selection of Belgian ales and harder to find local seasonals. Also more common J-Beer and US micros are heavily represented. What really caught my eye was the selection of lambic here...best Iíve seen outside Belgium. Eight or so Cantillons, Tilquin, Drie Fonteinen, Girardin, Hannsens, De Cam itís all here - quite remarkable. Very attractive take away prices. Simple bar snacks can be ordered. The owner is lovely and really knows her stuff about beer. Excellent.

Combination bottle shop and beer cafe. 10 minute walk from Osaka or Umeda station, through the pedestrian tunnel towards the Sky Building. (Tunnel doesnít appear on the RB map, but connects the streets under the train depot.) Standing bar downstairs; cozy tables and counter upstairs. 4 taps mix Belgian and Japanese craft at good prices. Bottle selection is extensive and interesting. Very good range of Belgians. American and Japanese craft bottles as well. Takeout prices on bottles are very good. They double if you drink them in house, which makes takeout more appealing. The owner is very knowledgable, especially about Belgian beer, and she speaks English. One of the top 2 beer choices in Umeda now.

My first real craft experience in Japan, so rating may change. Nice and quaint, standing room for a dozen and a neat bottle selection. Owner and staff were friendly with a decent knowledge. Take out bottles decent priced, but double to drink there is a bit much. Had fun and would recommend.

Thanks to KyotoLefty for taking me here. Modern place with decent tap selection. Great fun looking around the walk in cellar. Lots of interesting bottles in there. We were on a crawl so didnít stay long, but the bartender seemed really nice and the prices were good. Will definitely be coming back next time I am in Osaka.

Itís conveniently located near the Umeda Sky building (take the underground tunnel from JR Umeda station).
It is a nice place to drop by for a few drinks and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It only has 4 taps but they change often and the draft beer is reasonably priced. They also offer growler refills!
The real draw here is as a bottle shop, the to-go prices are good (double the marked price if drinking at the bar) and the selection is pretty good. Theyíve gotten in some rarities like Dogfish Head & Great Divide which are not commonly available in Japan(though not lately). They seem to be focused a bit more on American & European beers so their Japanese selection isnít so extensive, which is fine as there are lots of places that focus only on Japanese beers in Osaka.
They also organize tons of events. A must if you are in Osaka, especially if you want to grab a few bottles to go. Bonus, it is opened during the day.

Cool new place thatís all about the beer. I was the only one there between 9-10 on Sunday night. Helpful bar tender, who told me his boss spoke better English! (he did fine and was super helpful)
Four taps, three ji-beers and one US (Lagunitas IPA). Outstanding bottle selection, donít miss the walk in cellar! Edging out Doll Dress for Belgian bottles, and a nice contrast to Q-Brick for everything else.
Hope his business builds so he can offer a few more taps. A new must visit in Osaka, you just have to find the elusive tunnel and youíre there- 10 mins from Osaka station.

i want to say to the 6 of the 7 people that positively rated cbb,fu for wasting my time!
i did not have the same great experience;i found many beers past date,about 50% of the beers have no price marked,and i was not allowed to bring my backpack in the cellar(maybe i would steal)?
for the 10 yen that i might save going here,it is not worth the trip!
my wifeís comments:not so great and not better then the other bottle shops in osaka and kyoto.

Nice place with a cafe style to it (especially the upstairs). The staff and ambiance is comfortable and inviting. I enjoyed checking out the bottle room and tend to like bottle shops that allow you to drink. Unfortunately I think that double the bottle price is pretty steep. So far Iíve stuck to the drafts and taken my bottles to go.

Small but good selection. Very nice ambiance, although it can be a bit cramped on the first floor. Limiting the fliers on the second standing bar would behoove them. Service is great and the guys are very friendly. I really like the food, especially the sandwiches.

Pretty good as a bottle shop if youíre buying stuff to go. Excellent selection of bottles, though nothing I canít get elsewhere. 4 beers on tap, sometimes interesting, and good price for Japan. Lighting is way too bright, so itís not a place where I could relax, but Iíll tolerate it for one or two beers.
