Midway between Tetard Vallee and Yellow Ape, I think it is near that other new brewpub as well. They just opened and launched their first beer in May 2018 (Kuju IPA, a decent old school West Coast type IPA) but when I went the taps (8-10) were mostly imports.
It's in a basement by a canal near Kitahama station and you enter the dark beer cave you see the brewing set up on your left. In front of you are a half dozen tables seating 6-8 people and the bar with further seating for 5-6.
I didn't try the food but they were brewing a Jasmine beer when I went and the mashing in smelled heavenly, I got to briefly chat with the brewer and the bartenders were nice too. A good place that is a but more rock n' roll/dark dive bar in atmosphere than the bright Tetard Vallee brewpub. A cool place.
