Beer & Bed Bunks at "Nakano Beer Workshop" Tokyo

I've found your new favourite spot for an ice-cold craft beer brew in old downtown Tokyo. Nakano Beer Workshop (or Nakano Beer Koujou) is tucked away on a side alley in back streets of the famous restaurant, bar, and entertainment district near Nakano Broadway. With several rotating beers on tap, you'll never go thirsty here!

Feel free to follow favy!

A new craft beer institution in Nakano

I was introduced to this place by a friend of mine who loves craft beer like myself. Nakano Beer Workshop does not disappoint when it comes to getting a good glass of craft beer. Located a about a 5-minute walk from the north entrance of Nakano station, this cosy little brew pub is not what I expected when I think of Nakano shotengai.
Nakano is gritty, grungey, and somewhat gives off a bit of an old-school seedy vibe, but has plenty of character which is why I love the place. There are hundreds of little hole-in-the-wall bars, restaurants, pubs, and eateries. No matter where you go you'll generally be pleased. Nakano Beer Workshop is hidden amongst all of this madness, and only accessible from one side of a side street.

The beer

They opened up in mid-2014 by a local that previously trained under one of Tokyo's finest beer craftsmen. He's definitely taken all the good parts from his training and put it to good use. The beer here is full of flavour and unique in taste. Around five beers are generally on tap at any one time, but some times there'll be more.
Make sure to try the White, a kind of fruity and easy to drink beer that you can easily have few glasses of. The IPA and the Wheat IPA are great choices too. They usually have a rotating special beer. When I was here it was a tea infused beer! The pale ale is one of my favourites!
All beers go for 500 yen a glass, which is extremely reasonable for craft beer in Tokyo. They even do things a little different here too - you wash your own glass at the bar, with rinse machine, in between drinks, adding to the fun.

The food

It's good to note that food is also 500 yen a dish! At prices like this, you won't need to eat dinner anywhere else. The quality is surprisingly great too!

Bunk Bed seating

The interior of this place is pretty interesting too. From the outside, it looks like a nice little wooden cabin. As you head inside you'll notice the bed bunks that double as tables for a few people to sit and enjoy the brews.
They do close quite early though, so make sure to get here earlier in the night to fully enjoy all they have to offer!
I've been traveling and eating my way around the world! Now I'm in Tokyo to share all my favourite spots! I spend my time traveling, surfing, hiking, camping and eating amazing food! My favourite Japanese food...Agedashi Tofu!
