Beer Bulk J – Tokyo Beer Drinker


This was a very nice shock. Due to a barely ridiculous objective I’ve set myself in 2023, and the truth that I used to be form of within the space, I made my technique to Tama-shi and to Beer Bulk J. It’s not that removed from the station, perhaps about 5 minutes stroll. I used to be conscious that there was some connection to the 10Ants Brewery however wasn’t fairly positive, (and am nonetheless not utterly positive) concerning the particulars. As a substitute of discovering 10Ants beers as I might need anticipated, there have been GLaSS Hopper Brew Workforce beers as an alternative. It appears that evidently it’s the identical firm, however that 10Ants does the hoppy stuff and GLaSS Hopper makes beers with fruit and elements from close by Hino. A minimum of I feel that’s what the case is. Please appropriate me if I’m improper. Anyway, right here’s what you might want to know.

  • Small place with a counter for 4 and a few extra seats on a bit bench. Felt a bit prefer it was a small restaurant or one thing like that. However perhaps I had that feeling as a result of that they had a kitchen with spicy meals choices out there. I didn’t attempt any of the meals as I used to be on a strict booze solely schedule. (Barely embarrassingly, while in search of hyperlinks so as to add to this put up, I’ve discovered that additionally they appear to have more room on the second ground which I completely failed to note…).
  • Eight faucets of beer, seven of which had been Japanese, (a German pils was the opposite one), and 4 of which had been GLaSS Hopper brewery beers. I feel additionally they have 10Ants on normally however once I went there it was all GLaSS Hopper, which I used to be happy about as I’d by no means tried them earlier than. The usual serving measurement is 250ml and the costs for this measurement ranged from ¥750-¥900. The glassware could be very good and I feel you may ask for a much bigger serving measurement of your alternative. (I feel it’s completed by weight). Sorry that is all so imprecise. If I had extra confidence in talking Japanese I might in all probability be saying the identical issues however extra assertively. I’m fairly positive every part I’ve written is appropriate, however maybe I completely misunderstood. Along with the faucets, they’ve a few fridges of cans and bottles, some imported, some home to both drink on website or take away. When you drink on website you pay a ¥300 corkage payment, which is just about normal, I feel. The costs regarded first rate and the choice was very attention-grabbing!
  • Some daytime opening within the week (and loads of it on the weekend), and no cowl cost. I couldn’t discover WiFi however perhaps I ought to have requested. The workers member was VERY pleasant and I used to be a bit unhappy to have to go away after solely having a few drinks, however I had a decent schedule to maintain to.

It’s not probably the most handy location if you happen to don’t dwell in western Tokyo and Seiseki Sakuragaoka isn’t a station I had ever heard off, however to be trustworthy, it’s actually not tough to get to and I had a very nice time right here. Environment is at all times vital I feel, and the environment right here on a Sunday afternoon was very welcoming and makes me need to return there once I can. With my ongoing challenge I’ll be out west once more quickly, so if I discover myself passing, I’ll undoubtedly pop in for some extra beers.
