Japan’s definitive brewer is primarily responsible for launching Tokyo’s craft beer boom. Each of its taproom locations feature signature brews, seasonal and guest beers, plus food menus comprising each head chef’s specialties. The Yokohama location pairs its pints with succulent Kansas-style barbecue; Nakameguro specialises in handmade California pizza; while Harajuku keeps it simple with yakitori chicken skewers. Adventurous beer enthusiasts also owe it to themselves to make the pilgrimage to Baird’s original Shuzenji Brewery, nestled in the lush hills of rural Shizuoka.
