One of the main attractions at this brewpub is its very comfortable outdoor wooden deck, which looks out over a quiet side street just a few minutes from Shinjuku Station. The beer is pretty good too - when we visited recently they were serving five of their own beers along with one guest beer, priced at around Y850 per glass (there's only one serving size).

If you want something to eat along with your beers, you'll have to go up to the seventh-floor dining room. The menu there features simple fare like charcuterie platters, fried calimari, jalapeno poppers and fried chicken, with a separate kids' menu. Main dishes are priced around Y1000-1800.

Current beer offerings include a light hop pale ale, British brown ale, wheat and amber ales. Note that smoking is allowed out on the terrace.
