Occupying one of the
most stylish set-
tings for a taproom
in Tokyo, this brew-
ing laboratory from
the ever-popular
Hitachino Nest beer
offers seven beers
on tap, including
some experimental
lab-only brews that
they're trying out.
The brewery's hoppy
Nipponia (Imperial
Pilsner; 6.5% ABV)
is usually avail-
able, and we quite
enjoyed a single-hop
Falconer's Flight
Session IPA - quite
sessionable at 4.5%
ABV.

The food menu is
quite ambitious for
a small bar, with
small dishes like
beef cheek and pork
stew, pork schnitzel
and squid jerky.
Results so far have
been hit or miss: in
the hit column was
an excellent portion
of pork rillettes,
served in a glass
jar with a layer of
aspic on top and
bits of crunchy
vegetables mixed in
with the rich pork.
On the other hand,
barbecue beef and
pork cutlet sand-
wiches were unexcit-
ing - meaty but one-
dimensional and
lacking in pizzazz.

Located inside a
repurposed century-
old train station,
the bar has structu-
ral girders overhead
and beautifully
restored brick
walls, which are
lined with shelves
filled with various
types of hops and
other beer-related
stuff. Two big tanks
in front of the bar
complement the brew-
ery motif, and are
actively used for
brewing.

When the weather is
nice you can also
sit out in front of
the bar, in the
semi-enclosed en-
trance to the very
tasteful Maach Ecute
shopping complex.
Most food dishes are
priced Y380-780, and
all beers are Y680,
usually for a
medium-sized pour.
