Tokyo Craft Beer Guide (Updated For 2019)

TOKYO | Japan was a relatively newcomer to the craft beer scene, with laws allowing for the establishment of microbreweries not coming into effect until the 1990s. In that time, the country’s craft beer scene has exploded, and Tokyo is one of the best cities in Japan in which to experience Japanese craft beer. Many of the country’s best breweries like Yo-Ho and Baird have bars in Tokyo, while bars like Popeye feature over 60 taps of the good stuff from around the world.

It’s not just Japanese beer that can be found in Tokyo either – many big international breweries like Mikkeller and BrewDog have bars here. One thing’s for sure – if you like craft beer and find yourself in Tokyo, you’ve got no shortage of places to visit. Without further ado, here’s our Tokyo Craft Beer Guide, the best places in Tokyo for craft beer. Any favourites of yours not on the list? Let us know!

Make sure you check out our Beer City Guides list for more ideas on where to find great beer in some of the world’s best cities.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
