Enjoy Craft Beer, Delicious Pizza at Two Dogs in Roppongi

The craft beer movement is booming here in Japan, with new establishments and brands popping up all the time. Opened in Spring 2013, Two Dogs Taproom offers 25 beers on tap plus bottled offerings from around the world at their multilevel brewery and restaurant just a block off the main drag in Roppongi.

The Menu

I've been to this spot twice now and the Japanese beers I've tried have included Brimmer Brewing's Golden Ale and California Common as well as the White Ale from Hitachino Nest Beer. Draft beers are available in small (200 mL), medium (360 mL) and large (473 mL) and ranged in price from 500 yen to 1,050 yen. They also offer a tasting platter and if you and your friends are feeling especially brave (or just thirsty), you can partake in one of their monthly Beer Battles, which offer discounted pricing on food and drinks within a set time frame.

When it comes to the pizza, this is the place to go if you're looking for some seriously big eats. Available in sizes medium and large, these pies are the largest I've seen in Tokyo and I've eaten more than my fair share since I moved here. Two Dogs boasts an imported wood-burning oven so their pizzas come out with perfectly melted cheese along with a crisp, but still chewy crust. I loved the pie with pork sausage, pancetta, salami and chili (2,550 yen). Their menu also includes more traditional pub fare like fish and chips and chicken wings along with salads and appetizers.

Two Dogs is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 4 a.m. We were able to get in on a Saturday night without a reservation. English menu available and most of the staff speaks English. Beer lovers won't be disappointed at this international brewery and hangout spot, so check it out!
