Horyuzan Bakushu – Tokyo Beer Drinker


Horyuzan Bakushu started operations in April 2023. The largest characteristic of the brewpub is that it’s
run by a temple, Saiko-ji, situated in the identical space. On the whole Buddhism it’s forbidden to drink
alcohol, however not in Japan. To be exact, evidently completely different sects have completely different disciplines.
Anyway, I’m unsure if it’s OK for temples to make alcoholic drinks…however possibly it’s OK since they
do.

They name themselves “Ji-Beer”. It’s a pun, they use the Kanji character “temple” for “Ji”, and the craft
beer in Japan was known as “Ji-Beer”. (For the latter, the character used for “Ji” is “native”).
In addition they name their beer “Japanese Trappist Beer”. I’m fairly sceptical that this is similar factor
as Belgian Trappist… however anyway, they appear to love these puns and jokes.

The place is situated close to Keikyu-Kurihama station and it’s a three minute stroll. The place is sort of
small and has two tables inside and two extra exterior. It’s a standing bar, so it’s important to stand if you happen to
wish to drink beer on the spot , as you’ll be able to see within the photograph.

Once I went there that they had 5 beers on faucet, 4 common beers and one seasonal beer. Their common
beers are known as Yui, Ga, Doku and Son. These are taken from the Buddhist phrase ‘Yui-ga-doku-
son’ (唯我独尊 — that means ‘In heaven and on earth I alone am honored’). They serve beer in two methods: by the glass and in bottles. I feel the bottle is for take-out, however I didn’t test the small print. The glass might be 250ml and the bottle might be 330ml for ¥500 and ¥700 yen respectively. In today when the worth of beer is rising, I feel they’re providing beer at a reasonably low worth. Nevertheless, once I visited, the workers had bother adjusting the gasoline stress, leading to quite a lot of head, and there was in all probability solely about 180ml of beer within the glass. (In reality, the client earlier than me complained mildly about this). In addition they have a beer flight of three beers for ¥1200 yen. There are solely snacks corresponding to chips and canned items, so you’ll be able to deliver your personal meals. It’s situated on a neighborhood buying road, so there’s quite a lot of meals choices. Their common beers are fairly easy. Style good, however no sturdy character. In that sense, I ought to have tried the seasonal beer. Perhaps subsequent time!

The store is situated close to the ocean, it’s good to take a stroll there after which have a glass or two on this store, it could possibly be very enjoyable. There isn’t a cowl cost they usually don’t have Wi-Fi.
