A few days ago, I introduced you all to the God of Japanese beer, and at Yebisu Beer Hall, you have a grand opportunity to enjoy Yebisu Beer the way it was intended: in a jovial atmosphere with delicious food and space for friends. The restaurant is relatively spacious, so reservations are not really necessary unless you are trying to go on a Friday or Saturday night or if you have a large party (the reservation line is 050-5890-6386). Unlike many other Beer Halls, Yebisu is open for both lunch and dinner, with operating hours from 11:30 to 23:30. Perhaps some of you won't feel comfortable imbibing alcohol at lunch time, but if you're traveling, I say why not sample a few different types of Yebisu. The Beer Hall will always serve the staple Yebisu brews while offering one or two seasonal options.
As for food, Yebisu Beer Hall offers a nice fusion between hearty German and Japanese-style cuisines. Sausages and potatoes are staples across many of the offerings, but Yebisu provides customers a variety of meat and vegetable options, along with some seasonal dishes.
A lunch set will run you between 1000-1500 yen, while a full dinner meal will usually cost between 1000-2500 yen depending on your choices. The beer is reasonably priced. If you decide to make dinner reservations, they will offer a dinner course menu which includes all you can drink, but it is better to go ala carte on food.
And of course, I could not offer a recommendation for a Beer Hall without also giving a recommendation on a type of beer to have while you're there...all Yebisu varieties are tasty, but I prefer their dark beer options; specifically the Yebisu Black Beer and Creamy Top Stout.
On your way out of the restaurant, be sure to stop by and snap a pic with Ebisu Station's own version of the Hachiko statue--the Yebisu statue!
