Our bar is small and narrow that can seat about 15 (6 counter and 9 table).
The large counter is the focal point of our bar as it serves as the gathering place for people to discuss craft beer while having a great time meeting old friends and making new ones.
We have 9 craft beers on tap from both Japan and around the World that both Nao and Stef have carefully selected. We pay careful attention to new release beers so that you can be sure that what you are drinking is the most up to date and freshest beer around.
We also aim to provide a balance of different craft beer styles including IPAs, Saisons, Sour Ales, Stouts, Lagers and Limited Release craft beer to suit everyone’s tastes and to give everyone ample chance to expand their palates.
The bar interior is brightly lit so that you can enjoy the true colour of the craft beer and craft gin we serve. We hope that the brightly lit bar is more inviting, particularly to those who are visiting for the first time. Everyone is welcome.
Both Nao and Stef found each other on social media through a shared love of craft beer in late 2014 although they didn’t meet each other until late 2015. Since then they have slowly built a strong connection based on the discovery of delicious beers and the foundation of lasting friendship with those we’ve met along the way.
Let’s find out a little more about the people behind TWO FINGERS.
I grew up in regional Australia close to Melbourne. Lagers have long been the staple beer amongst most Australians with the occasional porter, stout, golden/brown ale or amber. For a long time, I never considered these beers to be craft. Beer was simply something to drink with ease and not worry about taste. For most of the time I drank lagers and if I felt special I would reach for a traditional ale. But I didn’t understand what I was drinking.
My eyes were awoken in 2011. I had dabbled in wine and sake (nihonshu) tasting and it was when I was living in Kobe that I had a bottle of Orval with my French lunch.
Here I realised that beer can be complex
WHO ARE TWO FINGERS?
TWO FINGERS is a small craft beer and craft gin bar located in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, Japan. Opening in February 2019, TWO FINGERS aims to provide an intimate and comfortable experience for people who wish to explore craft beer while making a few new friends.
The bar is run by Nao and Stef who are long-term craft beer lovers.
Our focus is on people.
We love people.
This bar was built with the love of our friends.
This is why we decided on an intimate bar we people can feel at home while forging new friendships, sharing experiences and stories, and catching up on the latest news of craft beer.
We understand that brewers are often very busy people and it’s sometimes difficult for them to convey the philosophy and key pints of their beer to others. We hope that we can play a part in helping others greater understand and appreciate the beverage that they find in their hands.
We have craft beer 9 taps from both Japan and around the World.
The Japanese breweries that we have selected to be on tap are from those that we have considered to be some of the best breweries that showcase the current potential of Japanese craft beer.
Our international craft beer selection is based around quality. Both Nao and Stef put on the beers that we want to drink. So we are not afraid to put on beers that are not necessarily popular with everyone even though we consider them to be exemplary of their style.
Our tap list is constantly changing and it is very rare to see the same beer twice being served. So every time you visit will be a new experience.
Contact us to book a table for any occasion. We accept reservations for up to 4 people.
