Very nice place with very boring beers. I had their sampler of 6 regular beers + 1 glass of current seasonal. I wish I could say something good about the beers, but I canít. Too sad for such a nice place.

I went here for lunch after visiting the Gekkeikan Sake museum. The service was pretty indifferent, they mostly ignored us. The food was really good with lunch sets for under 1000 yen. Tasting sets of their regular range are 530 yen while their Nile range is 580. So for around 11$ you can try all 6 of their core beers. The sake list is extensive and the gift shop had a few more bottles of beer(about 9 in total, 6 core beers, 2 tanba ones plus Fresh Cherry) plus tons of sake. A great place for lunch though get there before 2pm so you can beat the last order, they close at 230pm. They also have a nice courtyard where you can chill with drinks from the gift shop, a bizarre Kappa museum plus a small gallery in the brewery complex. The beer brewery can be viewed through large windows in a bar before the main restaurant which has some Japanese style alcoves as well as a large western seating area which has a bit of a german beer hall feel to it.

Great area to wander around. Restaurant has nice food and 6 of their beers on tap. A good stop, but it wonít be the best beer you get in town.

Fushimi is a relatively unexplored part of Kyoto for beer and sake lovers. This place is a fine start point for an evening foray. There are three sections: outside tables, inside bar and inside restaurant. I like the brown tone intimate counter bar with the copper brewing vats. I usually order their Ruby Nile amber beer because itís my fave style beer. If dinner is what I want, I go into the noisy main restaurant for some sashimi and a sake tasting of three small glasses. There is always at least one superb sake.Not much English spoken, but the older waiter is a true sake enthusiast.

The resturant was closed when I stopped by the brewery so I canít help much there. I do know that the self-guided tour was informative and enjoyable even if you canít read Japanese. In the store you can sample a couple sakes for 100 yen each and one of their beers for around 400 yen. The sake is better than the beer, though it isnít terrible. A fun place to look around when in Kyoto.

Great old Sake Brewery, with an outdoor beer garden in the summer. 6 of their own beers on tap (Alt, Koelsch, Sake-yeast Lager, Blue, Ruby, and White Nile Wheat beers). Beers are fresh and tasty though nothing extraordinary and are ALWAYS served too COLD (thus I give low service points). Order ahead of time. Food is tasty but a bit expensive. Try the sake as well. Definitely worth a visit. (Addition: Last time I went I focused on their sake and the rating went up 6 points. Sake is what they do best. Get the tasting set, and be sure to try their specially aged sakes. I had a 20-year-old Daiginjo that blew my mind.)

More of an sake brewery/compound over several blocks than anything. Restaurant makes its own beer in the back. You can sit at a counter and look through windows to the kettles, which is nice ambiance. Only 2-4 beers on tap, but worth stopping by if in the area and very date/wife friendly. Went back after a four year hiatus and this time had a full meal. Food is good and definitely recommended. Reasonably priced too. Beer is still very mediocre, but at least they have added a few new beers to the mix for some more ticks. Should be a stop if in Kyoto.
