Upon recommendations from Allan Hamer, Neil Harrison and I decided to pay a visit to Fishmarket Taproom on November 28th to acquaint ourselves with the beers homebrewed by Brian Baird from Ohio, USA!
Wel, well, first thing to say is that we have to go back because we just could not taste all the beers!
Brian's homebrews are simply topclass! I believe another good friend of mine, namely Robert Yellin, when he told me people were travelling all the way form Yokohama to savour them!
Brian and his very nice wife, Sayuri, designed and opened their microbrewwery bar in July 2000. Sayuri is doing most of the cooking and serving while Brian is busy brewing the following beers:
Rising Sun Pale Ale, Bay Seam, Teikoku IPA, Angry bay Brown Ale, Kurofune porter, as well as a rotating seasonal beer.
Prices: ridiculous! 700 yen a pint, 550 yen a glass or 250 yen for a taster.
Other beers form England, Ireland, Czechoslovakia and Belgium are also available as well as 6 different Single malt Whiskies, 7 Bourbon and one Premium Sake!
A very large food menu for the hungry and the guests curious about the local produce. Worth atry!
Parties possible. Bands are coming on occasions, so check regularly!

I have meant for a long time to introduce this favourite late-night bar of mine! A great place for 60's, 70's and early 80's rock lovers as music tapes, videos & LD's are constantly on. Have a quiet talk with Mr. Hayashi, and I'm pretty sure he will come up with something special from Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green's), Santana (Woodstock), Pink Floyd (The Wall), Monterey Festivam, Jimi and more and more!
Great drinks, reasonable prices, quiet customers. Perfect place to spend alone or with special company!
