Beer Inn is a chill place to go grab a couple craft brews. It is a basement bar that has that feel of your anywhere in the world hole-in-the-wall type of bar, but with a good beer selection. They usually have about 5 different rotating...More

The atmosphere and the people working there are laid back, the assortment of beer is just amazing, from all over the world. The food is also nice. Staying an entire evening could be costly, but definitely worth it!!

Fred's bar is fantastic, if you are a beer lover. Good food, amazing selection of beers (especially for Japan). Fred's knowledge and passion for beers and Hokkaido is quite evident. Just make sure to check the prices, because things do add up.

Mugishutei specializes in imported craft brews from all over the world. It's not the place for Japanese craft brews, of which there are several.....but their selection of imported beers is dazzling and delicious. The bartender (Mr. Ueno) loves his beer and enjoys people. He speaks...More

Went in on a Tuesday night in a hope to get some 1-on-1 assuming it would be nice and quiet. Spent at least 1 hour talking beer and planning my trip through the massive select. Fantastic knowledge by Jonah (Fred the owners son). Fred popped...More

Craft beer is a relatively new thing in Japan, and although most big cities here have at least one or two very good bars for domestic brands, places offering decent brews from foreign countries are few and far between. That's where Mugishutei comes in --...More
