As if opening an entire bar dedicated to one of Japan's very best lines of craft beers wasn't enough in itself, Ibaraki's Kiuchi Brewery, famed for its Hitachino Nest beers that have been instrumental in spreading the gospel of Japanese craft abroad, offers adventurous patrons an opportunity to study the art of homebrewing at this new venture. Housed inside the Manseibashi station complex close to Akihabara Station, the Hitachino Brewing Lab pledges to advance the beer education of Tokyoites through hands-on classes and the like, all the while functioning as a top-of-the-line bar with ten taps and an innovative food menu curated by Ibaraki-born star chef Noriyuki Sugie.
