More of a fast-food coffee shop (hot dogs are Y290) than a beer bar, Berg does offer a couple of Japanese craft beers on tap and maybe a dozen US imports by the bottle to go with your snack. It's worth noting because of its location - right in the...

Brussels Beer Project - Beer bar: Nishi-Shinjuku
Not to be confused with your typical Belgian beer bar, BBP is actually a craft-beer taproom - one of the best in Tokyo in our opinion. They serve a lineup of more than a dozen beers on tap from a small craft brewery in Belgium, including...
