Brew Lounge Ichigaya – Tokyo Beer Drinker


Written by James

The signal above the store identify says all you’ll want to know, “Craft Beer & Italian”. That’s precisely what Brew Lounge Ichigaya affords. The format is fascinating and a bit uncommon. There are 5 seats at a counter by the door, so it’s simple to come back right here by yourself. There are about 30 desk seats so it’s good for dates or assembly a pal. There’s additionally a non-public room that may accommodate 10 individuals which might be a very good place for a celebration.

There appear to be 10 faucets, all their very own beer, however solely six had been on. Principally, they brew about 10 completely different beers and rotate the faucets. The beers aren’t really brewed on web site. So far as my internet analysis can collect, they’re brewed in Ota-ku by Haneda Brewery which they personal. The beers on faucet once I visited had been a Session IPA, an IPA, a Pale Ale, a Crimson Ale, a Saison and a Weizen. My favourite was the Crimson Ale. They brew a Porter which wasn’t on once I visited however I’ll undoubtedly strive subsequent time. The beers had native place names which is one thing I type of like. For instance, the Pale Ale was Ichigaya Pale Ale and the Crimson Ale was Kojimachi Crimson Ale. 

Beers are available two sizes, pint (¥1,200) and common (¥780). The common seemed to be not less than half a pint, I assumed it was a little bit extra. All beers are the identical worth and it’s a very good worth contemplating how costly craft beer is in most bars. In my view, the beer was good for the value. I assume they make their cash on the meals within the night, to allow them to afford to be beneficiant with the beer. At lunchtime, which lasts till 14:30, there’s a actually whole lot. In case you order lunch, you will get your first common sized beer for ¥480! In addition they make their very own gin, Bathtub Lab Gin and  there are wines obtainable by the bottle or by the glass.

Being a restaurant, the meals is sweet. Since this can be a beer weblog, I gained’t go into particulars however all the things you’ll count on an Italian restaurant to have is on the menu. I went at lunchtime on a weekday so virtually all the opposite clients had been simply there for the meals. Regardless of that, all of the tables had been taken and the one obtainable house was on the counter.

This isn’t the type of place that I usually drink at however I actually preferred it. It’s completely attainable to come back alone and sit on the counter however most individuals are available teams.  As a result of there may be all kinds of non-beer choices, it might be a simple place to come back with a bunch who don’t all drink craft beer. I undoubtedly need to have a celebration with a bunch of pals within the non-public room someday.
