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.

The staff here are friendly and helpful, and the prices on the draught taps and take-out bottles are quite reasonable. Strengths lie in Japanese (always good range of Bairds), Belgian, and West Coast US. Inside the place itself is a little cramped, and coming down the steep stairs is tricky after a few high-percentage brews, but itís cosy, clean and welcoming.

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.

If you have not yet been to CBB, you are missing out. This is one of the best craft beer places in Osaka and has been setting the pace in the Osaka area since they opened in June of 2012. CBB has slowly been earning its reputation as the IT place in the downtown area for craft beer takeout as a bottleshop (double price if you drink bottled-beer on-site, however there is no table charge for drinking pints there) and decent prices for Japan. Itís located just south of Umeda Sky Building. The selection of beer is now at around 200-300 and the shop also has a walk in freezer. The owner, Ai, is very friendly and enjoys talking with customers about beer (in English or Japanese) as does the rest of the staff who are also very friendly. While there are only 4 taps, there is generally a good selection of at least one IPA, a Belgium, Pale Ale, a Japanese craft brew and so on. Can usually choose from a UK half-pint, American pint or UK pint. Very easy to meet other beer enthusiasts here in the downstairs standing area or hang out with friends in the upstairs area. CBB also does regular events (recently they hosted Hoppy Happy Xmas, a joint event with pizza from Devilís Craft in Tokyo, an IPA Day, etc). The selection here is very good for Japan and CBB is always adding new beers to their lineup while maintaining customer favorites in their lineup. Canít recommend CBB enough.

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.

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.

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.

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.
