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.

I heard that Thrash Zone played punk and metal while serving some good beers. While it wasnít quite what I expected in decor, it was a fun place anyhow. I was thinking it would be dark and loud, but it was well lit and the music was being played at a very resonable level. Had a few hand pumps mixed in with their taps. Nothing exceptional, but still a good selection. I had the cheese plate and it went really well with the couple IPAs I had. The bartender is nice, knows his beer, and speaks english...which was nice for me. Some people can find this place right away, I on the other hand, walked around for about an hour, passing it 5 times before giving up and trying again a couple weeks later. TimEís directions are better than the ones I used, though. Big fan of this little bar, Iíll be back for sure.
Update December 2008. There seems to be an influx of guest beers available and he added a couple taps. I love this place!

Reopened in Feb 2012 in new location - a whole 20 sec walk from old location. Instead of turning left at parking lot, keep walking straight, cross main road and it is the first building on the right side.
I love the new place. Better than the old place. It has a rea,l no frills just good beer, feel to it, that lacked in the last place - plus it is bigger. Exposed concrete walls, TVs playing heavy metal videos. Tap list has expanded, but still focuses on extreme craft beers - when I was in there the other night 8 of the 12 taps were IPA or IIPAs. Prices seemed to have dropped (1000 yen pint/US craft beer, ie. Hop Juice, etc nad 800 yen for Japanese craft). This is a must for any beer geek who is in the Tokyo/Yokohama area. Awesome
A small bar not too far from Yokohama station (see map on website). Punk rock memorabilia lines the wall, but the music is surprisingly played at reasonable levels unless you ask the owner to turn it up. Seven micros on tap, which all rotate except for the house beer, which is Nagahama ale and Minoh Stout. Only place in Tokyo/Yokohama that I have seen Shinano and Inawashiro beers on tap. The latter is just average, but the former is really nice. The owner will also dry hop beers just for his bar. The night I was there Minoh IIPA was on and was fabulous with Centenial dry hopping. Food is only smoked stuff and yaki-udon (like yaki-soba). Only seven taps, so given limited beer range, there are better places around. However, given that it is only a 5 min walk from Cheers, it seems like a mandatory stop over. Proof that Yokohama is the most improved beer city in the world for 2007. From Yokohama Station go out the North Gate, then go out the West exit (essentially the NW part of the statio
