Visited the new location on pub crawl care of Tim Maloney, which is bigger although undecorated when I visited. Great line up of beers, easy to find and they donít mess about with big heads when they serve you, making sure itís up to the pint line. Sure this is going to be great, and when I was there they had a really nice food buffet on. 1000 yen for a pint which is pretty good in Japan. Iím not a metaller though so as far as the musicís concerned it ainít my bag. However, beer quality as served is best Iíve ever had in Japan!

What a fantastic, but small place. A one room apartment converted into a bar. Great selection, great service, fantastic energy. Metal music and good beer !!!... This a Rating of the old place...... The new place is just as cool as the old place, but with more taps, more good beer.... Perfect.

San Diego style IPAís while listening to 80s metal is the theme of this prize. Located just a 5 minute walk north of Yokohama Station, youíll be able to hide out and drink the hoppiest beers available in Japan. Service is great. The owner is very friendly, welcoming, and will let you play whatever music youíd like of his collection. Iíd give it a 100, but I know thatís because of personal reasons.

The best beer bar in Ylkohama, no exceptions. Mr. Koichi is a wonderful host. The beers are selected by Koichi, and he appreciates craft beer. Hereís to continued sucess to the Thrash Zone!

Great gem of a place in Yokohama. Not far from the station, though can be hard to find, the first time. Tim Eís directions will get you there. Around 9 taps, including Crossover, a new beer brewedd by Yokohama brewery, especially for Thrash zone. kinda cream ale (?) West Coast IPa, itís a hoppy monster! Great crowd there. seats about 10 to 15 at a squeeze. always has a few locals in. Everyone is very friendly. One of the friendliest bars I know of. Suprisingly, I donít hear much Thrash Metal when I go there. Story goes it was created as a way to promote Nagahama ale, discovered by the owner, Koichi san whilst fishing out on a lake near there. They now have a nice range of Japanese craft beers plus one or two American hop monsters. Occasionally dry hopping beers to make them even better and more interesting. One of my favourite bars. Period. Better than Cheers! Open almost till last train (then thereís always the green sheep, as a last resort). Watch your last train, or you may end up

New place much more comfortable than the old, though it looks a bit rough and industrial. Even more great beers on tap, and good prices. Small, personal place near Yokohama station. Great beers on tap. The master is a very nice guy who speaks English. Other customers were friendly too. Good mix of American and Japanese micros on tap.

This place is becoming a weekly stop. I miss my California brews and Thrash is slowly becoming home away from home. The Japan Micros on tap are always tasty. Plan to go by tonight.

A great little place in Yokohama. The beer range is not extensive, but what they do have is generally of very high quality. Nice music selection (if itís your thing) and the bar owner (Koichi) is a great guy, who really enjoys his job. Definitely worth a visit in Yokohama...see you there!

Hands down, my favorite stop for a beer. The bartender is fun to talk to, the music selection is excellent, the decor is nice...with a vision ripped right from the average metalheadís bedroom in the 80ís, and the beer selection is usually spot on...Showcasing Japanese craft beers and a growing selection of imported bottles. Thrash Zone is the kind of rare place that has a metal heart but a homey vibe. Great for a local chat with a buddy or a solo trip to sample some fresh beer and smoked foods. The cheese plate comes recommended as does the Minoh Stout. ALE AWAITS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Smallish (in the way that most Japanese Places are) probably fitting 20 or so. Could be a bit of a challenge to find for some folks, follow TimEís directions and take a peek at the map on the web site and you should be fine. Inside is very well lit with minimalist decorí. Clean yet inviting the walls are lined with heavy metal albums from the 80ís. Like said earlier, the music is mostly metal (I have yet to hear any punk) played at a very reasonable level. 7 taps with 2 hand pumps with a decent variety of Japanese micros and an attentive staff of one make this place a soon to be regular stop when in Yokohama for me.
