The flagship for Aeon Liquor's craft-beer sales, the Jiyugaoka branch of this nationwide chain offers an impressive selection of both bottled and canned imported beers - one of the best in the city. They also host a number of weekend tasting events throughout the year where you can try out several dozen beers to see what you like.
As an added bonus there's a small deli-counter area where you can sit down and drink any of the beers you buy here - just add an additional Y100 per bottle or can. You can order sandwiches or other snacks from the counter if you want something to go with your beer. The deli counter is open until 10pm, with last order at 9:30.
