TOKYO | Craft Beer Market have expanded rapidly in recent years and have 10 locations around Tokyo. They caused quite the stir when the first one opened near Toranomon station in 2011 due to the fact that the beers were priced very competitively – undercutting the competition nearby that were selling mass market beers at a higher price.
We’ve been to the Jinbocho outlet and it’s still one of our favourite spots for a good beer in town. 30 beers on tap, all priced at ¥480 for a small glass or ¥780 for a pint (a US pint not an imperial pint unfortunately). It’s mostly Japanese craft beers on the taps which are well organised into style of beer on the menu. The place gets very busy – bookings are recommended if you’re visiting during peak time.
There is a very decent selection of food on offer too. You get complimentary snacks with your beer, and the rotisserie chicken is on point.
