Kochi spherical up – Tokyo Beer Drinker


In my ongoing private quest to ‘full’ Japan I lately visited a few Shikoku prefectures sort of en route between two soccer video games. Our journey fortunately coincided with the pretty latest opening of a flowery new brewpub in Kochi. As we solely visited Kochi metropolis, proper now this publish will probably be fairly brief, however I hope so as to add to it after future visits as I actually loved Kochi, even when getting round wasn’t notably straightforward. The 2 breweries in Kochi metropolis are each pretty tough to get to, and I can’t think about it’s actually attainable to get to each in sooner or later except you’re blissful to spend some huge cash on taxis and solely pay flying visits. With that in thoughts, I ought to give an honourable however uninformed point out right here to Tosaco a little bit out of the town to the east, which we couldn’t get to this time. It seemed like a really good location so will probably be again a while to tick that one off and add it. And there was additionally a bar on the town referred to as Kochi Beer Laboratory which we’d deliberate to go to however was closed for a vacation once we have been on the town.

Kochi-shi

South Horizon

Massive, swish place out by the port of Kochi. Fairly inaccessible except you utilize a taxi because the bus service is sort of irregular. Additionally the bus is sort of costly so the taxi turns into much more of a great choice. Constructed on a little bit mound by the ocean with some good views and a giant metallic KOCHI signal. It’s a very nice place to spend a while having some beers. Considerably annoyingly I’ve managed to delete my images of the menu so every part goes from reminiscence. That they had about ten faucets, I believe…, six of which have been their very own beers, I believe…. Costs have been fairly good. Very good meals menu too. Beer flight obtainable. Numerous fridges of cans and bottles, a few of their very own beers, some Japanese friends and a few imports too. Undecided if these have been for on-site consumption, to remove, or each. Good workers, actually snug really feel and good beers! Will certainly return. Simply want that they had a shuttle bus or one thing, however I realise this want is an totally ridiculous one.

Cafe Jewel König / Yamamoto Bakushu

Small place a brief stroll to the north of Kochi station which feels prefer it was a German bar and restaurant however is now the taproom for the Yamamoto brewery. Six faucets of their very own beers and plenty of bottles and cans, so far as I can bear in mind, a couple of from Japanese breweries with the bulk being European stuff. (Hope that is proper. Sorry if my reminiscence is failing me). Their beers have been a mixture of kinds with some trendy ones thrown in together with the extra conventional European sort issues. Meals too, however we solely had the pretzel and a few edamame as we’d stuffed ourselves on the earlier cease. Very pleasant workers who steered some locations for us to go to throughout our journey.
