Beers pubs with whisky 1 - The Aldgate
For the next few posts I’ll be writing about primarily beer pubs that serve whisky. Of course we aren’t going to see rare single malts but when you have friends that drink beer sometime you have to compromise. The first pub I’ll highlight is the Aldgate in Shibuya.
The Aldgate has been serving craft beer for many years. It has a wide selection of 20 craft beers on tap and also a great selection of pub food to go with it. Examples include curry and the Welsh favourites rarebit and faggots as well as baked beans. The fish and chips are probably one of the best in Tokyo.
They also boast around 6000 rock CDs and LPs for your listening pleasure. Whisky wise they have around 10 Scotch single malts, a few Scotch blends, with some Irish and American as well. They will serve your whisky in Glencairn glass if you order it straight. The have a fair selection including most standards like Springbank 10, Isle of Jura 10, Talister 10 and Ardbeg.
Open from 6pm on weeknights and 5pm on weekends and holidays.
