Irish Bar McCanns

Today a briefer than usual brief post. McCanns is somewhere I’d heard of as being an Irish pub with some craft beer. When we visited after the final Frontale game of the season for our Frontale Gaijin Fan Bonenkai it was a really pleasant surprise. The decor and atmosphere is pretty authentically Irish pub like. You order at the bar and pay as you go. This is not a predominantly craft beer place with plenty of the usual pub beverages available, but crucially it had four taps of craft beer hidden away out the back alongside the usual Irish pub draught beers. These craft taps included three by one of my recent favourites TK Brewing and one by Knee Deep. This convinced me that this place deserved an entry of its own, albeit a brief one. Prices ranged from ¥1000-¥1200 for a US pint, so pretty much as you’d expect. One drawback is that smoking is allowed but I guess this is to be expected in a pub that is not exclusively a craft beer place. There’s plenty of seating at the counter and on the second floor. There is also room to stand so there’s no need to worry about reserving (probably). As I said above, this was a really pleasant surprise and I’m sure I’ll be going back.
