Saitama's first brewpub, open since Spring 2014, serves up ten different varieties of freshly made craft beers, including several Pale Ale variations. The food menu offers typical pub fare, with a larger-than-average selection. Our charcoal-grilled pork tongue was very tasty; they also have lots of German-style sausages and basic small dishes like pickles and curry-flavored potato salad.

Most beers are Y1100 for a pint and Y600 for a half, and you can get beers to go (Y1100 for a 500ml pet bottle, Y2200 for one liter.) The interior is pleasantly rustic, with seating at four high tables or at the big counter that runs along the wall.
