Where to grab a cold one in Tokyo: T.Y. Harbor
Located by the Tennoz Canal, T.Y.HARBOR is the oldest independent brewery in Tokyo. Since 1997, it’s been producing original craft ales, which are only served at affiliated restaurants. The lineup includes Pale Ale, balancing the bitterness of Cascade hops with fruitiness, as well as Amber, Wheat, IPA and Imperial Stout. T.Y.HARBOR also experiments with monthly “Seasonal Brew” beers. Past brews include sakura-infused ales and pumpkin beers. At the T.Y.HARBOR restaurant next to the brewery, visitors can sip on craft beer while munching on Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, New York Chicken Wings, and BBQ Ribs, and enjoy terrace seating with a view of Tokyo Bay. Part of the TYSONS & COMPANY stable, with 11 restaurants and cafes, T.Y.HARBOR beers are available at locations including Aoyama CRISTA, Harajuku SMOKEHOUSE, Daikanyama IVY PLACE and others.
