Cluster is a beer bar with a bottle shop quite near Kashiwa station out in Chiba. It has its own dedicated group of regulars but was still very welcoming on the couple of occasions that I’ve been there. Here’s what you need to know.

- Counter for around ten and tables for four more. Lots of wood as we have come to expect.
- Ten taps and a selection of around 70 bottles which can be drunk on the premises or taken away. Beer selection is import heavy with German, Belgian and US dominating, but with a sprinkling of Japanese stuff. Beer is served in two sizes, 240ml and 480ml and prices range from ¥700-900 for the half and ¥1000-1400 for the pint. There is also a beer flight available for ¥1600 (4 x 120ml of the staff’s recommendation it says, so maybe you can’t choose). What seems like a decent selection of ‘craft’ spirits too.
- No smoking and no cover charge and it’s open during the daytime!
