TOKYO | Watering Hole is a relative stalwart of Tokyo’s craft beer scene, having opened in 2012. It’s conveniently located a short walk from Shinjuku JR station, but away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy parts of Shinjuku. The bar is owned and operated by Ichiri Fujiura, who has a real passion for good beer – he was the first non-American to win the Homebrewer of the Year award with his Toasted Coconut Porter back in 1998.

In line with Fujiura’s homebrewing roots, there’s even a small nano brewery on site, the product of which can often be found on a few of the 21 taps (including a few hand pumps). As well as the bar’s own beers, there’s a good range of Japanese and imported beers on offer at any given time, and quite often there’s stuff you won’t find elsewhere in Japan. When we last visited Watering Hole they were hosting a tap takeover featuring beers from Brooklyn’s Other Half Brewing Company, including a few limited beers that have rarely been seen outside of New York.

The bottle selection is very good too – you’ll find bottles from likes of Stone, Green Flash, De Ranke, and Cantillon amongst others, and flights of four 100ml pours are available if you want to sample a few things.
