While people comment on the increasing number of small-scale breweries and craft-beer bars in Japan, I can’t help but notice that Belgian beer is also gaining a lot of attention — albeit on a lesser scale.

Among the many Belgian-style pubs in the city, Beer Cafe Brugse Zot in Nihonbashi’s Coredo Muromachi 2 building, which opened in March, stands out. Even on a recent weekday daytime visit, the bar was already bustling, with staff rushing to deliver orders to middle-aged ladies who had likely been shopping at one of the many department stores in the area.
