If you find yourself in Urawa thirsting for a craft beer or two, this small, ten-tap counter will be a welcome site. The tap list represents a well-chosen lineup of (mostly) small Japanese craft breweries, with most pints priced at Y1000 (or Y700 for a smaller size). Snacks like fish and chips and roast beef are nicely prepared, and wouldn't be out of place in a British pub.

The bar has a very casual, lively atmosphere and friendly service, although it can get smoky at times. It's located along a charmingly dilapidated shopping arcade leading from Urawa station. Note that weekend hours vary - 3pm-1am Saturdays, 3pm-midnight Sundays and holidays.
