Guri Craft Beer – Tokyo Beer Drinker

As we speak, a fast submit so as to add a spot in Nishi Tokyo that I lately visited as a part of my ongoing problem to drink a craft beer in each a part of Tokyo. I used to be very unfamiliar with the world and had no concept about this place till my pal advised me about it and talked about it was serving a beer from a Fukui brewery. As Fukui was the final prefecture of Japan for me to tick off a beer from we made hasty plans to go to. Right here’s what you have to know:

  • Attention-grabbing wanting place. Fairly small and cosy with tables for possibly 20, certainly one of which is true subsequent to the door and gave me a little bit of a shock after I entered. Has a type of distinctive really feel to it which is troublesome to elucidate. A lot of wooden, however feels fairly old fashioned moderately than the newer type of wooden packed locations which can be round. In fact the beer is essential right here, however so are the quite a few different forms of booze obtainable and the meals. Guess it’s mainly a small izakaya which simply occurs to have craft beer.
  • 9 faucets of Japanese craft (certainly one of which is Faucet Marche, however was a good providing once we have been there), with some attention-grabbing names in there alongside some extra widespread breweries. Beers are served in two sizes, 330ml and 473ml. The smaller prices ¥790 and the bigger ¥1090, however tax is added to this value so it finally ends up being ¥869 and ¥1199. As talked about above, when you’ve had sufficient beer, there’s a veritable plethora of different booze obtainable. You identify it, they’ve in all probability bought it, together with two pages of gins on the iPad menu.
  • There was a canopy cost of ¥330 which I suppose is fairly customary for an izakaya. They aren’t open within the daytime and so they didn’t appear to have WiFi. These are the three issues I usually put on this finish part and get excited once they all are a constructive. On this case, they have been all damaging, however to be sincere, it didn’t fear me that a lot. I believe that’s fairly par for the course with izakayas so there’s no level getting troubled by it.

I’ve to say, I fairly loved myself right here. It appeared to be household run and there was a very nice native really feel to the place. It’s not the best to get to, however that type of made it really feel a bit extra particular, nearly like we have been on vacation someplace. Should you’re planning on visiting from central Tokyo, your greatest wager is to make use of the Seibu Ikebukuro line and get off at Hoya. It’s a couple of 15 minute stroll from the station. Alternatively, you may get a bus from Mitaka, which is what I did on the best way there. Beware that they shut fairly early. We didn’t discover and have been fortunately ordering away nicely previous their closing time. Sorry! Additionally beware that it appeared to be fairly widespread, so when you’re making the journey from additional afield, it is likely to be price reserving to keep away from what I might think about might be a big disappointment. That is one other place that will get added to my ‘I’ll return after I’m within the space’ listing. Unsure when that is likely to be although.
