Brief Nagoya intermission, part 2: Keg Nagoya

(This is part two of my Nagoya posts. Here are parts one and three)


Our second stop and one of the three places in Nagoya that are owned by the company that runs Y. Market (the other two being Grillman and naturally, the Y. Market taproom). Keg is a lot smaller than Y. Market, with only 6 seats at the bar and seating for around 30 others. Beers are served in the US measures of 9oz (266ml) and 14oz (414ml), so smaller measures than Y. Market. The prices are generally the same across the board, ¥800 and ¥1200 respectively, so actually pretty expensive. They have 12 taps, all of Japanese craft beer, with some more unusual stuff making an appearance. This is probably the first place I have seen Ohya on tap. They only had one Y. Market beer on and this was one that they were also serving at Y. Market, which was a little disappointing but I guess perfectly understandable. The food seemed pizza focused and the pizza we had was very nice. Apparently this place was the trailblazer of Craft Beer in Nagoya, but I can't help but feel it has got left behind a little bit by newer places. Still a good place to go though, but just seems less exciting as the two other places were very good.
