Beer Engine


Beer Engine has filled a notable niche in Tokyo’s craft beer scene. The bar uses pumps which are rooted in the English beer tradition and so are well suited to porters, the workingman’s tipple so ubiquitous in Georgian England that it instigated the infamous — and deadly — London Beer Flood of 1814. Naturally, owner Soichiro Itsukage serves a proper imperial pint.
