Bathe Yotsume Brewery – Tokyo Beer Drinker


Bathe Yotsume Brewery formally opened on December 16, 2023, and is operated by a sento
(public tub) close to Kinshicho. I first noticed their tub (Kogane-yu) in {a magazine} article. The
mixture of sento and beer shouldn’t be so new, and there’s Kamigata Beer in Osaka, which
renovated a sento right into a brewery. Nonetheless, working a sento and a brewery on the similar time is
one thing new―no less than I don’t know of another examples―so I used to be within the place and
determined to go to.

The brewery is close to Oshiage station, two minutes stroll from the closest subway entrance. However this
time I began at Kinshicho station and walked to Kogane-yu to take a shower. The place is properly
reformed with the sense of memory of the sentos of the great outdated days. On the similar time, the
ambiance there’s subtle, just like the BGM there was ambient music, and many others. You may benefit from the brewery’s beer on the counter on the first flooring and Kogane Kitchen on the 2nd flooring. It was good to have a glass of beer after the tub, however they solely served pale ale once I visited. I didn’t know why. I noticed three faucet handles on the counter of the sento on the first flooring, so I ought to have checked what was on faucet there (however I forgot!). I had the pale ale on the 2nd flooring. The price for utilizing the bathhouse ¥520, and the beer is ¥700.

Then I walked one other ten minutes to the brewery. Standing on the entrance of the brewery, you’ll be able to
see the brewing tanks via the glass and a hallway main from the doorway on the left to the
again. There are about six slender seats alongside the wall of the aisle, and additional again are 4 field
tables that may seat three or 4 folks. In entrance of the taproom counter there was a DJ sales space.
Actual information had been being performed for background music.

They’ve ten faucets, however once I was there, they served seven beers on faucet. Amongst them, three had been their unique beers, which price ¥630 for the M dimension and ¥1,000 for the L. The remainder of the beers had been visitor beers, the M dimension for ¥680 and the L for ¥1,200. I solely had the M dimension and I assume that’s about 200-250ml. I believe that’s an affordable value contemplating the upper costs lately.

Their beer lineup at the moment was Pale Ale, IPA, and Weizen. I already had the pale ale on the sento,
so I had the opposite two sorts right here. They had been all respectable contemplating the brewery had solely opened
about two months earlier than. Additionally, the visitor beer lineup was a bit fascinating. For instance, I’ve by no means
seen 808 Brewery’s beer on faucet at another place (however possibly that’s simply because I haven’t been
going to that many locations these days). A easy meals menu like salami & cheese, French fries,
jerky, ham, nuts and so forth can be obtainable.

My keep there was not that lengthy, however I loved the ambiance of the place. In that space, there’s
the Tokyo Sky Tree on the north aspect throughout from Oshiage Station, however the location of the brewery
is the alternative of that, so it was additionally good that the place was not crowded. Solely beer followers appeared
to be there. I’ll undoubtedly return there after some time (and possibly re-visit the sento, too!)
Like many different brewery taprooms, there is no such thing as a cowl cost. They do have Wi-Fi.
