World Beer Museum: Yokohama Minato-mirai
World Beer Museum Yokohama Minato-mirai: Beer bar

This massive 200-seat bar-restaurant serves more than 250 beers from 50 countries around the world - including 19 world beers on tap - along with an international food menu. Beer prices can be a bit higher than average, but they do serve a number of beers that you won't find elsewhere in town.

For example, they offer four German beers on tap and another fourteen by the bottle - probably the best German selection in Yokohama. There's also a big range of Belgian beers, including five on tap, and three different Czech beers on tap.

The beer-friendly food menu is, if anything, even more internationally diverse. There's Jamaican jerk chicken and Canadian poutine, German curry wurst and British fish and chips, Belgian steamed mussels and Spanish hams. Japanese Hamburg steaks and original curry rice dishes are popular with the lunchtime crowd, with weekday lunch specials served until 1:30pm.

While most seating is at tables, there are also country-themed bar counters if you just want to stop in for a quick drink. Budget around Y3500 for food and drink at dinnertime, or Y800-1000 for lunch.
