Beer lovers of the world:
We are sure that you know of Japanese beers such as Asahi, Kirin, Sapporo but would you be interested in diving a little bit deeper into the world of Japanese beers? In recent years, the craft beer scene has been flourishing throughout Japan including in Osaka. The city has craft beer events multiple times throughout the year and we have many breweries and pubs in the area to enjoy some nice local beers and microbrews.
A 15 minute train ride (or 20 minute walk) to the north of HOTEL THE FLAG you can find GARAGE 39.
The pub has a simplistic stylish design and features 15 rotating taps to enjoy. They offer a tasty menu with plenty of variety to pair with the thirst-quenching beers.
Hours: 5PM-Midnight (Closed on Sundays)
Chuo-ku, Osaka-shi, Osaka-fu
A little more north is BEER BELLY, home of Minoh beer.
Minoh beer started in Osaka in 1997 and has won multiple awards in the beer world, such as Worlds Best Imperial IPA in 2013. Their stout has won at least three awards on it’s own! The beers are made in Minoh city, about a one hour train ride from our hotel. As the city is covered with beautiful nature and a majestic waterfall, we certainly think taking a trip that way is worth it. However, if you’re looking for something a little closer to your comfortable hotel, we’ll be happy to guide you to one of the two local pubs ran directly by Minoh Beer in the city!
Hours: 11AM-9PM (Closed on Thursdays)
Hours: 5PM-2AM (Mon-Fri)
Nishi-ku, Osaka-shi, Osaka-fu
Kita-ku, Osaka-shi, Osaka-fu
And a personal favorite of ours, Kamikaze!
Only a 13 minute walk to the west from HOTEL THE FLAG is this gem. Kamikaze serves delicious food and offers 23 revolving taps to savor. The owners also host a regular beer event at nearby mall, Big Step, called Big Beer Step. The event is held outside so we can enjoy all the brilliant sunlight with delicious beers, local djs and musicians, and local restaurant stalls filled with delicious foods.
