Sake-ya – Kitami – Tokyo Beer Drinker

At present a fast put up about what I used to be shocked to search out out appears to be a brand new iteration of a well-known and probably not notably cherished outdated chain. Sake-ya Kitami is a extremely swish trying place below the Odakyu line tracks close to Kitami station. Right here’s the large reveal – it’s a department of the Beer Kobo chain! I used to be type of shocked after I not too long ago came upon that Beer Kobo had opened a ‘brew pub’ in Soshigayaokura. On nearer inspection I couldn’t see the brewery although, so possibly it’s only a pub. After I ventured in to Sake-ya with out realizing its parentage I used to be fairly shocked to see the Beer Kobo brand on the glassware and am now questioning if Beer Kobo, after presumably operating out of Chuo line stations to open pubs at have determined to focus on the Odakyu line for his or her subsequent enlargement. Nonetheless, evidently Sake-ya, while being owned by the identical firm, is a separate chain from the Beer Kobo pubs, possibly providing a barely swisher expertise. However their glassware and web site gave them away. Anyway, right here’s what it is advisable know:

  • As I mentioned above, it’s a fairly swishy place. Decor is a bit fancy and it’s fairly large. Together with the eating and different booze, (champagne blissful hour anybody?), this place truly has a brewery, which you’ll see whenever you go to the bogs. There’s additionally a booze store right here, so evidently they’re branching out somewhat from the standard Beer Kobo fashion.
  • Ten faucets, seven of which had been their very own. The visitors had been a Beer Kobo beer that was made at DHC, a Beer Kobo beer made at one other Beer Kobo department and… ermm… Carlsberg. Beers served in two sizes, half, (the standard dimension, round 250ml), and pint, (presumably a US pint). Costs vary from ¥660-¥890 for the half and ¥1100-¥1340 for the pint. As inflation appears to have left me behind a bit not too long ago, I’d recommend that you just don’t pay an excessive amount of consideration to my emotions on costs, however they initially appeared affordable, however on reflection, contemplating the beer is made on web site and it’s Beer Kobo, are maybe a bit pricy. However the place is fairly fancy so it didn’t appear out of character. In addition they have a beer flight of their home beers (120ml x 3) for ¥1320. You may’t select which beers you need although. It’s both 1-3 or 4-6 on the record, which is a little bit of a disgrace.
  • No cowl cost, loads of daytime opening and so they have WiFi. Oh, and as I type of talked about above, they do meals too. However you in all probability labored out that it will be that type of place from my quite a few mentions of it being fancy.

I really feel a bit imply for simply popping in for one after which writing a weblog put up, however to be sincere, I feel I do know the Beer Kobo beers fairly effectively. I haven’t been to a Beer Kobo pub for a very long time although, so I can’t say if the truth that Sake-ya had some extra trendy types than what you would possibly usually count on at a Beer Kobo pub is exclusive to Sake-ya, or one thing that’s now frequent all throughout the chain. Maybe the previous, on condition that with the totally different identify there appears to be a need to set themselves aside from Beer Kobo a bit. However then once more it does say Beer Kobo on the glasses, so what am I speaking about? I’ve had some enjoyable occasions at Beer Kobo locations previously, however the truth that I haven’t been to 1 for a really very long time in all probability means that they aren’t excessive up on my record of locations to go. Sake-ya appears to be interesting to a distinct demographic and though I don’t suppose I’m in that demographic both to be sincere, however I’m positive loads of folks will benefit from the expertise. The following put up can be on one other place in Kitami which offers a really totally different expertise so I suppose it’s a superb station to stay close to to as there’s one thing for everybody!
