Almost heaven in Akasaka: BierVana is a Disneyland for beer drinkers who will think they died and have gone to hops heaven. (Beer + Nirvana = BierVana, get it?) The eccentric “bier” selection is phenomenal and brings a wide range of global craft beers to downtown Tokyo. BierVana calls itself “more than just a bar”.

They strive to be a portal for beer knowledge and even have a bookcase packed with beer reference books and broadcast images of beer events from around the world on a 10 meter screen. As well as a plethora of imported premiums they have craft beer from Hitachi Nest, Japan’s top Weissbier exporter and Baird Beer, a pioneer in “ji-beer” and world class micro-brewer.

Not intrepid? Sample the great value “BierStick”. With summer upon us, BierVana is the perfect place for a quiet rendezvous or a special event in the outside terraced area. A place where customers can immerse themselves in an totally international beer experience.

BierVana also hosts beer and food matching seminars, sometimes featuring a representative from the brewery. BierVana has a selection of fine wines, cocktails and northern European cuisine at excellent prices, one place in Akasaka you should really visit before you die.
