Stopped in at the Ale House in Umeda on the way home tonight.
It’s a craft beer bar in a basement just off the Eastern Shopping Arcade (Hisgashi Shoutengai) near HEP5 (this will mean something hopefully to people who know Osaka, if you don’t, but come here you should be able to find it ).
It was a very cool bar, and pretty popular but to be honest a bit too expensive for my tastes (and budget). ¥1200 for a can of Boddingtons (about 8 quid!) is a bit much.
But the Japanese craft beer prices were reasonable and well worth checking out and the whiskey prices weren’t too bad either.
Give it a visit, but if you want to try the foreign beers, remember to set your budget a bit high.
