Enjoy Craft Beer at Y.Y.G. Brewery in Shinjuku

Jan 15, 2019

Craft beer is becoming more and more popular throughout the world. It goes without saying that there are breweries in Shinjuku too, a city where you can find anything that you are looking for! In this article we will be introducing you to Y.Y.G. Brewery & Beer Kitchen, a brand new bar and restaurant that is tucked away in Shinjuku.

How to get to Y.Y.G. Brewery

Y.Y.G Brewery and Beer Kitchen is a 5 minute walk from Odakyu Shinjuku Station, or an 8 minute walk from the South Exit of JR Shinjuku Station. When you enter through the terrace, you will be greeted by the sparkling white walls of the brewery.

While you can enjoy Y.Y.G’s original craft beer here, they also have a selection of domestic and imported guest beers as well. The Cash-On-Delivery system is simple, so anyone can easily stop by and grab a drink or two.

Try Y.Y.G's Original Craft Beer

You can have your drink inside while you check out the brewery in action, or you can head out to the wooden terrace, where a heater is set up outside during the winter season. We ordered the Pump IPA and Ushi Bone ~Wai Wai Gaya Gaya IPA~. The Pump IPA is Y.Y.G’s original. It’s a thick, murky beer that tastes a bit sweet. The Ushi Bone IPA is a dry beer has the sweet fragrance of melon and apricot. This one was very good!

The 7th floor of the brewery is a restaurant where you can enjoy your beer with a meal. You can see a great view of Shinjuku from here!

The brewery is open during the daytime on Saturdays and Sundays. Go with your family for lunch, for an after party or rent the whole place out – this brewery and restaurant can be used for any occasion. There is an English menu available so tourists from overseas can place their order easily.

This is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city. Spend time with a loved one while each enjoying a unique craft beer.
