Brew Lounge Ichigaya – Tokyo Beer Drinker

Written by James

The signal above the store identify says all it is advisable to know, “Craft Beer & Italian”. That’s precisely what Brew Lounge Ichigaya presents. The structure is fascinating and a bit uncommon. There are 5 seats at a counter by the door, so it’s straightforward to come back right here by yourself. There are about 30 desk seats so it’s good for dates or assembly a pal. There’s additionally a personal room that may accommodate 10 folks which might be a very good place for a celebration.

There appear to be 10 faucets, all their very own beer, however solely six had been on. Principally, they brew about 10 completely different beers and rotate the faucets. The beers aren’t truly brewed on website. So far as my web analysis can collect, they’re brewed in Ota-ku by Haneda Brewery which they personal. The beers on faucet after I visited had been a Session IPA, an IPA, a Pale Ale, a Purple Ale, a Saison and a Weizen. My favourite was the Purple Ale. They brew a Porter which wasn’t on after I visited however I’ll positively attempt subsequent time. The beers had native place names which is one thing I type of like. For instance, the Pale Ale was Ichigaya Pale Ale and the Purple Ale was Kojimachi Purple Ale. 

Beers are available two sizes, pint (¥1,200) and common (¥780). The common appeared to be at the very least half a pint, I assumed it was a bit of extra. All beers are the identical value and it’s a superb value contemplating how costly craft beer is in most bars. In my view, the beer was good for the value. I suppose they make their cash on the meals within the night, to allow them to afford to be beneficiant with the beer. At lunchtime, which lasts till 14:30, there’s a actually whole lot. Should you order lunch, you may get your first common sized beer for ¥480! In addition they make their very own gin, Bathtub Lab Gin and  there are wines obtainable by the bottle or by the glass.

Being a restaurant, the meals is nice. Since it is a beer weblog, I gained’t go into particulars however every thing you’d count on an Italian restaurant to have is on the menu. I went at lunchtime on a weekday so nearly all the opposite prospects had been simply there for the meals. Regardless of that, all of the tables had been taken and the one obtainable area was on the counter.

This isn’t the type of place that I usually drink at however I actually preferred it. It’s completely doable to come back alone and sit on the counter however most individuals are available teams.  As a result of there’s all kinds of non-beer choices, it could be a straightforward place to come back with a bunch who don’t all drink craft beer. I positively need to have a celebration with a bunch of pals within the personal room someday.
