Have you honestly ever done a side by side comparison of the same beer poured from a bottle and on tap? For certain styles like lagers and really hoppy beers draught is probably better. For some other styles, like big beers (high abv), bottle conditioning is better.

Yeah I have......draught beer is better.

Bottled beer is ok, sure, but a bar calling itself a craft beer bar that has only 1 beer on tap?! Good ane!

I guess I would just be happy that there are any places that offer craft beer. It wasn't long ago that it was very difficult to get anything other than macro brew.

True BM......but when they are charging 800-1000¥ it seems a bit naughty for a pissy little bottle

That's the price of rarity. Nah, not paying twice the price for all that jazz. However, a 3000Y for a craft nomihodai would be OK.

But it runs a regular nomihodai everyday for the same price, 1800¥, but only 2 hrs. Good beer and well worth it as it's pints u drink, not ジョッキ's

No, a chu is roughly the same as a bottle....around 300-330mls give or take an extra couple of mls either way depending on how cheap the bar is. A dai is just over a pint at 600-something mls

I like those great big huge mega ones. They must be at least 1.5 pints.

I reckon close to 2 pints. One I had I think they called it a Mega Jokki. Don't know if that is an official size or not!
