One of my go-to spots for a reasonable priced pint any day of the week. Food is good, love to smash out their nomihoudai when the taps are exciting. Usually among the first places to put on a beer new to the area.

Small local beer joint. Ok japanese tap list, cover charge, average snacks, clueless staff, uncomfortable seating... Fairly unimpressed on a first visit, doubt I will go back anytime soon.

Trendy and pretty little bar downtown. Barr is tiny but you can sit upstairs. Beer menu is good, with lots of varieties including 4 barley wines when we went. Snacks are provided and were very nice.

Iíll give it a third chance at some point, but I had a second underwhelming experience here. The staff just isnít pleasant, and the selection is not good enough to overcome this, especially given the nearby bars in the area. The tsukidashi is also just not very good. Choice doesnít matter when you donít enjoy the calories.

Thanks again to KL. Finished the night here, and it was a good place to end up. Decent selection of stuff. •300 cover but at least you get to pick what you have. Had a few beers I had been wanting to try and the staff were very friendly. Bit cramped maybe, but donít you just call that intimate if you want it to be a good thing?

A nice place near Kitahama station, very clean and simple interior which would be great for a date. The 320 yen table charge was a bit disappointing (though you could choose a nice little appetizer so it is not too bad) and the staff didnít seem to know the ABVís of the beers on tap but were really friendly and apologized for the lack of an English menu but it was available on their website in English. They have 30 taps but not all of them are in use yet, nice variety though with the menu split into: White beer, stouts, others, etc. A nice place.

Fairly small bar. 30 taps, all Japanese micros on the night we went. Good menu of solid pub grub: salads, pizza, fritters, etc. Friendly atmosphere, though the staff seemed tired. They seemed to really know the beers they serve. Good pours and very fast service, too. Standing bar space for maybe 10 people, very tight against the front windows along one side. Upstairs has four tables. The bar is right over the cooking area, so it can get quite warm and the cooking smells tend to interfere with the beer experience.

30 taps include 2 hand pumps; mostly Japanese craft, 4-5 imports. Prices quite reasonable, pints start at less than •800. •300 charge included your choice of a small appetizer. These were pretty good. Beers were in good shape. The lineup was, as in the case of many new bars lately, solid, but not quite inspiring, meaning that there were few seasonals or hard-to-find beers. Hopefully that will get tuned in. Less than 10 minutes from Q-Brick and a bit more to Beer Belly, so this should bring the whole area up a notch. Service is very fast and attentive. I like this place more and more as I go, though it is small.

Much smaller than I expected considering they have 30 taps. Downstairs is mostly taken up by the kitchen and tap system, but thereís a small bar with 3 stools and the rest standing. Waiters have to go outside and come in through another door to get to some of the bar customers, itís that tight. Upstairs is very well done though I didnít sit up there. I have no idea how theyíre going to push 30 kegs at a time with so few seats. Big list of Japanese craft beers, but nothing interesting, very few strong beers, and not much I wanted to drink. Food was decent enough, though I just had a pizza. Prices were very reasonable, most expensive pint was around 1000 yen. Enjoyable, nice looking place, but nothing unique.
