The Gotanda branch of Craftsman is on the first floor of a building full of bars and pubs just a 3 minute walk from the west exit of Gotanda Station. There are more than 30 craft beers on tap and a well priced food menu to go along with your beer. Beer is priced by the glass. Irrespective of the maker or variety, it’s 500yen + tax for the smaller glass and 800yen + tax for the larger glass. The larger glass holds approximately 350ml. While this isn’t extraordinarily cheap (ala Shinshu Osake mura) they have an incredible range, many of which aren’t available at retailers.
