You would think that after the benders we went on in Taipei, I would steer clear of alcohol for awhile but one of the first things I did on my first week in Tokyo was visit the Yebisu Beer Museum. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you much about the place since everything is written in Japanese. If you really want to know about how beer is made…I’m sure you can find the same information on Wikipedia.
However, what’s important here is that you can try any beer you want here at discounted prices. Usually a bottle just about anywhere is about 500 or 600 yen but here, heck, as soon as I walked through the door, someone handed me a plastic cup full of bronzed goodness.
The sampler menu contains four different beers in half-sized glasses and a bag of crackers for 400 yen. I’m not exactly sure what they all are but one is the standard draft beer, I think. One is a dark, Guinness-like (although not as thick and milkshakey and actually quite delightful) brew. One is a pale ale and one is a wheat beer. A fun spot if you’re a beer enthusiast.
