Don't let the slightly clinical feel of this Japanese craft beer bar, with its generic blond slab tables and benches, put you off. Don't even be put off by the staff, whose style can tend to the, umm, abrupt. And certainly don't be put off by the fact that this place really feels like drinking in a mall.

Dive straight into the amazing beers. Because as a chance to get a handle on Japan's thriving craft beer scene, and apparently the first Japanese craft beer bar outside Japan, Jibiru rocks.

Bottles and casks come from breweries including Hitachino Nest, Shiga Kogen, Ashigara, Kinshachi and Yo-Ho, inter alia, in styles from ales, stouts and IPAs through to ume (sour plum) beers and chocolate weizen.

We enjoyed Hitachino Nest's very adult ginger ale, a chewy, full-bodied, slightly sweet ale with a zingy hit of fresh ginger that's not overdone. A good place to settle in for a session, perhaps fortifying yourself with some of their very serviceable Japanese food.
