OGA Brewing Cafe – Tokyo Beer Drinker

With a Sunday afternoon in entrance of me with the one plan being going to a document store in Koenji, I made a decision to lastly tick off some Chuo line locations that had been on my backlog listing for a very long time. Maybe frequent sense would have dictated that I’m going to 1 station and tick off in every single place close to there. Nevertheless, I assumed it might be extra enjoyable if I went to 4 locations at 4 completely different stations. So in all probability I nonetheless have one other Chuo line new locations pub crawl that I must do. OGA Brewing is a brewpub (I believe, however I couldn’t see any proof of the brewery) and undoubtedly a brewery cafe about quarter-hour stroll from Mitaka station. I’d solely beforehand drunk OGA at a soccer match the place I attempted their inexperienced kale beer made for Tokyo Verdy. I’m not a large fan of kale so I assumed it was solely truthful that I visited their pub earlier than I made any judgements. So, right here’s what it is advisable know:

  • Slender sort of cafe with an extended counter alongside one facet and a few tables on the opposite. Didn’t have that wooden and bar concrete decor you’d anticipate and somewhat as an alternative appeared extra like what you’d think about a traditional cafe to appear like. A number of Tokyo Verdy memorabilia on present close to the entrance door.
  • Beers served in two sizes, common and small. Didn’t see the common measurement however I’d say that the small was round 250ml. Common beers ranged from ¥850-¥900 and small beers from ¥500-¥650. That they had eight faucets however solely seven beers had been on. All of them had been their very own creations, naturally. Let’s be sincere, in the event you’re going to a brewery cafe, you’re in all probability going there to drink the brewery’s beers, aren’t you? In the meanwhile additionally they have a pour your personal beer choice too if that’s your factor. In addition they promote their very own beers in bottles to takeaway.
  • Order on the counter and pay as you go. No cowl cost they usually have daytime opening every single day that they’re open (they’re closed on Tuesday, based on google). There appeared to be WiFi, however I didn’t strive to hook up with it. I used to be solely making a quick cease as I used to be ON A MISSION.

Firstly, I ought to apologise to OGA, as once I arrived there have been a number of folks there however I appeared to clear everybody out throughout my quick go to. This didn’t occur somewhere else I went to, so maybe it was a coincidence. If you wish to drink OGA beers, that is the place to go, I assume. It’s a little bit of a trek from the station although, so be ready for that. And I believe that hip drinkers won’t discover the place to their style. It appeared to me although that they’ve a neighborhood fanbase they usually in all probability aren’t essentially focused on attracting skinny denims carrying, bearded, Hazy Double IPA drinkers with topknots. They appear to have loads of good opinions on-line for the cafe and their beers and it was a pleasant place to go to however to be sincere, the beers weren’t actually for me.
