In the Kasadera neighborhood of southern Nagoya, craft beer enthusiasts have a special spot to savor: the Tall Boys Brewing Taproom. This cozy venue is renowned for its unique selection of craft beers, including eight different taps that showcase both their signature brews and guest beers. Beer aficionados often rave about their Midnight Ride West Coast IPA and #Lupulin Hazy IPA, with prices starting at a reasonable ¥900 per pint. But it’s not just about the beer; the culinary offerings, particularly the Reuben sandwiches made with brisket from Midtown BBQ, are a highlight.
The taproom’s ambiance, with outdoor seating and free Wi-Fi, adds to its charm, making it a perfect place for a laid-back hangout or a leisurely evening. Customer reviews echo this sentiment, with Tall Boys Brewing earning high ratings for its food, beer, service, and overall ambiance. Located conveniently just five minutes from Kasadera Station in Minami-ku, it’s an accessible spot for both weekday evenings and weekend get-togethers. The taproom is open from 6-10 pm on weekdays and 3-11 pm on weekends, and while the dress code is casual, reservations are recommended to ensure a spot in this popular destination.
The Bombay Black is a collaboration with Mya Bar, another new craft bar on the block, in keeping with TBB’s intention of growing the local community. Pouring with a solid haze that looks impressive in the glass, the next thing you notice is its pungent, tropical fruit punch aroma and flavor that lingers on the pallet with every sip.
Mid-March will see the return of TBB’s crazily popular Midnight Ride. Extra heavy dry hopping gives this West Coast IPA a moderate haze and a big passion fruit nose supported by tasty winter citrus. A light body and medium bitterness make for high drinkability.
The reissue of TBB’s IPL has everything that you want in an IPA, but adds a lager crispness which makes it ideal for sipping during hanami. Hints of mint, fresh-cut grass, and tropical fruit. Bitterness balances out the back. It tastes like summer in a glass.
