Beer Bulk J – Tokyo Beer Drinker

This was a very nice shock. Due to a barely ridiculous aim I’ve set myself in 2023, and the truth that I used to be type of within the space, I made my strategy to Tama-shi and to Beer Bulk J. It’s not that removed from the station, perhaps about 5 minutes stroll. I used to be conscious that there was some connection to the 10Ants Brewery however wasn’t fairly certain, (and am nonetheless not utterly certain) concerning the particulars. As a substitute of discovering 10Ants beers as I might need anticipated, there have been GLaSS Hopper Brew Crew beers as an alternative. It appears that evidently it’s the identical firm, however that 10Ants does the hoppy stuff and GLaSS Hopper makes beers with fruit and components from close by Hino. A minimum of I feel that’s what the case is. Please right me if I’m unsuitable. Anyway, right here’s what it is advisable know.

  • Small place with a counter for 4 and a few extra seats on a bit of bench. Felt a bit prefer it was a small restaurant or one thing like that. However perhaps I had that feeling as a result of that they had a kitchen with spicy meals choices accessible. I didn’t strive any of the meals as I used to be on a strict booze solely schedule. (Barely embarrassingly, while on the lookout for hyperlinks so as to add to this submit, I’ve discovered that additionally they appear to have more room on the second ground which I completely failed to note…).
  • Eight faucets of beer, seven of which had been Japanese, (a German pils was the opposite one), and 4 of which had been GLaSS Hopper brewery beers. I feel additionally they have 10Ants on often however after I went there it was all GLaSS Hopper, which I used to be happy about as I’d by no means tried them earlier than. The usual serving dimension is 250ml and the costs for this dimension ranged from ¥750-¥900. The glassware could be very good and I feel you’ll be able to ask for an even bigger serving dimension of your selection. (I feel it’s accomplished by weight). Sorry that is all so imprecise. If I had extra confidence in talking Japanese I might in all probability be saying the identical issues however extra assertively. I’m fairly certain every part I’ve written is right, however maybe I completely misunderstood. Along with the faucets, they’ve a few fridges of cans and bottles, some imported, some home to both drink on website or take away. For those who drink on website you pay a ¥300 corkage payment, which is just about customary, I feel. The costs seemed first rate and the choice was very attention-grabbing!
  • Some daytime opening within the week (and loads of it on the weekend), and no cowl cost. I couldn’t discover WiFi however perhaps I ought to have requested. The employees member was VERY pleasant and I used to be a bit unhappy to have to depart after solely having a few drinks, however I had a decent schedule to maintain to.

It’s not probably the most handy location in the event you don’t dwell in western Tokyo and Seiseki Sakuragaoka shouldn’t be a station I had ever heard off, however to be trustworthy, it’s actually not troublesome to get to and I had a very nice time right here. Environment is all the time vital I feel, and the environment right here on a Sunday afternoon was very welcoming and makes me wish to return there after I can. With my ongoing venture I’ll be out west once more quickly, so if I discover myself passing, I’ll undoubtedly pop in for some extra beers.
