Opened in mid-May 2017, this Belgian-style beer pub is a copy of its original Brussels location, with a little bit of Japanese flavour thrown in for that local feel. The changing craft beer lineup ranges from ubiquitous Belgian beers to a few Belgian-Japanese collaborations – think a yuzu-infused weissbier for example, brewed in Kyoto with guidance from the Belgians. Staff are knowledgeable and always up for a chat, while prices are similar to those at other craft or import beer pubs in the area (from around ¥850 for a regular glass).
Their food menu is worth a gander too: the chips (frites) are well-seasoned and crisp, and can be had with homemade mayonnaise, which received its own stamp of approval from our tasting team. The salads and mains are good as well, and are reasonable value for money in terms of volume, with taste never being compromised. The grilled vegetable mix came with enough variety to keep two people happy while nibbling away, while the merguez salad was of decent size too; most dishes go around the ¥1,000 mark and are somewhere between actual meals and elaborate, filling bar snacks. BBP is set to hold beer-centric events in the future too, so keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates.
