"outdoor" food court setting adjacent to mall. a dozen 6-place picnic-style tables with padded benches. Finished red wood materials. smoking pervasive. Flat-screen TV with English Premiere League showing. Japanese draught beers include Hitachino Nest offerings at $15 SG for 500 ml glass. Obnoxious music from adjacent bars destroys any ambiance. Unique for Japanese craft beer selection, so worht checking out when near Somerset MRT stop.

Great Japanese craft beer bar, located in an outdoor area of a shopping mall (313@Somerset). Itís a little tricky to find, so the easiest way to get there is head to the corner of Orchard & Cairnhill Roads - then enter the 313@Somerset mall & JiBiru is on the left. Selection-wise, they have 6 x taps (of mainly Hitachino Nest), and a compact bottle/can list of other Japanese craft brewers. Food-wise, theres a tasty selection of (mainly cooked) Japanese food/bento-boxes.

A difficult one to rate because (i) it is a difficult-to-find bar in a shopping mall (called 313@Somerset), (ii) it is a Japanese craft beer specialist bar abroad, (iii) there is nowhere Singaporean to compare. My instincts is to rate it high despiite its awful position. Too many (helpful) staff when I was there. At the time of writing there are two listings for the same place - the one I am writing for is not placed correctly. The other one is.

Situated in a commercial center, but on the back of Orchard road, the atmosphere is more relaxed. They have a good number of Japanese products, maybe something you didnít have yet.

Limited drafts compared to what was on the menu...only 2 on draft. Staff was not very knowledgeable. Nice seating outside. Micros limited to 2 breweries in bottles. Nice view if small park.

Situated in a busy food mall. Mostly Hitachino Beers plus Yona Yona on tap. A few American imports. Not worth making a detour for.

Been here 3 times and had consistent mediocre service. Staff never bothered to introduce their craft beers and looked on like they canít wait for me to finish my beer. REal pity cos itís Located conveniently. Iím heading to their competitor instead. Cheers!

Been here many times, only just got around to reviewing. Staff are generally very friendly, but often have just a basic knowledge of their beers. besides their taps, hitachino ipa and white ale seem house standard, some guests, and usually only has one simple lager - notable in singapore. recently got some very interesting bottles, yama bushi saisons and other interesting japanese brews, unfortunately some other bottle choices (more commercial euro/aus beers) were unadventurous and not worth their prices, otherwise reasonable for a good beer in sg. good food and menu getting better, if the kitchenís closed you should get the ok for takeaway
