Nagano Prefecture is noted for its craft beers, and Nozawa Onsen itself is home to AJB (Anglo Japanese Brewing Company) which was founded by a British expat and his Japanese wife. The pair have also opened this stylishly minimal, standing-only taproom right next to their brewery, where visitors can sample a selection of AJB brews all made with purely natural ingredients, such as a ‘soba stout’ made with the same buckwheat used in soba noodles, or their signature Nozawa Onsen IPA. Libushi also occasionally offers guest beers from around the world, and a tasting set (2,000 yen) lets you try any four beers of your choice.
