Craft Beer Cafe Prost – Tokyo Beer Drinker

My ongoing mission noticed me head west once more and this time it was to Hachioji, one other place I’d by no means been earlier than, however one which I had after all heard of. A part of the rationale for that is maybe due to Prost, which has been round for fairly some time now. I believe they just lately celebrated their eighth anniversary truly. As soon as once more I used to be fairly shocked with fairly how simple it’s to get to those locations that beforehand appeared so far-off. Hachioji is just 37 minutes from Shinjuku when you get on the quick Chuo line practice, and due to Prost, there’s a excessive probability that I’ll be taking that practice once more, because it was a spot I actually appreciated. Right here’s what you should know.

  • Very good really feel to it. Form of L-shaped counter for 10 and a few small tables. Decor is pub-like slightly than fashionable craft beer bar model so don’t count on huge swathes of naked concrete. A number of beer associated stuff adorning the partitions together with some artwork, and plenty of information and music associated stuff too. It was a really cosy place to have a few beers and I want I might have stayed for extra.
  • 10 faucets (however solely seven had been on once I visited on a Wednesday night), all of which had been Japanese craft. Beers served in three sizes, half (280ml), common (400ml) and pint (560ml). Costs ranged from ¥900-¥1000 for the half, ¥1200-¥1400 for the common and ¥1500-¥1850 for the pint. Do keep in mind although that the pint is a UK pint so is far larger than the pint measurement that’s usually served in Japan. Additionally, among the beers on the high finish of the pricing had been issues that you just in all probability wouldn’t wish to drink in UK pint measurement, like a Belgian Tripel and an Imperial Stout. Even a half of the Tripel knocked my socks off as I hadn’t eaten dinner earlier than I drank it. So principally I’m saying, that I believed the pricing was fairly affordable. Together with the faucets they’ve a fridge of cans which had been a mixture of Japanese and imported stuff. The costs for them additionally regarded fairly good to me. I imagine they’re for consuming in or take away as they had been listed on the menu, however I in all probability ought to have checked. Sorry…
  • No cowl cost, some daytime opening at weekend and WiFi. That they had meals on supply and different booze too. The glassware was very nice and the workers had been very pleasant too. Nothing however positives!

This was a very nice place! It jogged my memory in a means of Shin Maruko’s Beer Bar The Pint which I discover myself in just about each week after soccer video games. However to be trustworthy, that reference won’t make a lot sense to many individuals. Prost has a fantastic ambiance and is a very enjoyable place. They actually appear to care in regards to the beer. And it’s solely about 5 minutes stroll from the JR station. Will certainly be again quickly. I’m planning to go to the Takao Beer Taproom and I’m already considering of going to Prost on the best way dwelling. Good! One final thing, it’s a bit of bit tucked away behind one other store so don’t stroll previous and miss it!
