Far Yeast Brewing Co. (Head office: Shibuya Ward, Tokyo; President: Shiro Yamada), a craft beer maker that spreads distinctive Japanese beers to the world, will relocate its directly managed pub from its previous location in Shibuya 2-chome to Far Yeast Tokyo Brewery & Grill, a new company-owned and operated brewpub in Gotanda. The new restaurant’s Grand Opening is scheduled for Wednesday, October 14th, 2020.
Compared to our former restaurant, Far Yeast Tokyo Craft Beer & Bao*, our new location will have five times the seating capacity and a distinctive and wide variety of food and beverages to choose from, perfect for any occasion.
*Far Yeast Tokyo Craft Beer & Bao” in Shibuya, closed on Sunday, August 23.
Far Yeast Tokyo Craft Beer & Bao, our first directly managed pub, opened in July 2017 in Shibuya and has become known throughout Tokyo as a great place to enjoy our full range of craft beer on tap. Over the last three years we out-grew the 2.5 square meter restaurant location and decided to relocate to accommodate the growing demand for a high quality craft beer and dining experience.
Far Yeast Tokyo Brewery & Grill’s inviting glass-walled spacious location in Gotanda, Tokyo, will seat 105, including 30 seats on the terrace.
The pub has twenty taps and offers carefully selected craft beers on draft, including the company’s core brands: the KAGUA and Far Yeast series, and Japanese and international guest beers. The menu focuses on grilled dishes such as the herb-grilled Daisen origin chicken and grilled Japanese origin beef. Additionally, the food menu spans more styles to complement the beer including Napoli pizza and charcuterie plates. We also serve the legendary Ozaki beef, which is in constant demand in Japan’s domestic market and overseas.
The Gotanda brewpub also houses a 300L brewery scheduled to begin operations in January 2021. One tenth the size of our head brewery in Yamanashi, Gotanda’s brewery will offer experimental, limited edition beers brewed on-premise and will enable us to fill the needs of restaurants and other customers interested in small-scale customized beers.
Like our other directly managed restaurants in Atami and Fukuoka, we have adopted the same stringent measures following municipal government guidelines to prevent the spread of coronavirus. We appreciate your willing participation in adhering to these guidelines.
Our head brewery in Yamanashi is currently preparing a limited edition beer to commemorate the grand opening of Far Yeast Tokyo Brewery & Grill, to first be tapped at the grand opening on Wednesday, October 14. The limited-edition beer uses the new Talus hop, first released for commercial sale this year. It will be a sessionable beer with a gorgeous hop aroma perfect for the first drink of the night. Through brewing, selling beer, and operating directly managed pubs, we will continue to promote the enjoyment of unique craft beer in Tokyo and around the world.
