The well-chosen selection of twenty craft beers here is accompanied by a very nice food menu, with enticing dishes like stewed pork belly and chicken wings, herb-infused fish and chips, and potato salad with chicken breast and avocado. There are several lamb dishes to choose from, including a spicy and very hearty mutton stew (Y1400).

The dining area is fairly utilitarian, with several cafe-style tables and a long counter. (The space used to be occupied by beer bar Ushitora One, and the new bar is run by a former staff member with little change of decor.) Most beers are priced at Y800-900 for a regular glass (270ml), and Y1200-1300 for a US pint. Standing beer bar Ushitora Two is located just two doors down, in the same building, so you can easily hop back and forth between the two places.
