Golden Nectar has deservedly established its name in Shizuoka City for a couple of years now, and it is increasingly becoming busy especially on week ends be it sunny or rainy!
It consists of a high stool bar counter where you can see all the craft beers served on the tap. Bear in mind they change regularly! I would advise to try a full sample drinking set of them!
Check the list of the day!
Tables are available for small groups and customers wanting more comfort or less exposure!
Now, it is not all craft beers on the tap but there are plenty of other American craft beers in bottles and cans inside the refrigerated display near the entrance! Choose your bottle or can and it will be served in glasses by the staff!. Pictures are welcome!
North Coast Brewing Acme IPA!
Aurora Koppyalis from San Diego!
Hazy Little Thing IPA by Sierra Nevada Brewing!
Amarilla Gorilla IPA by Smog City Brewery!
Deftones Phantm Bride IPA by Belching Beaver Brewery!
Another IPA by Smog City Brewing!
now, look at the menus! Plenty of salads for the health conscious!
My personal favorite, Texas caviar carefully made with local fresh vegetables and buritos!
As for food, I do have a suggestion: first go to loaded fries and choose the cheesy fries!
Scrumptious fries by themselves,…
But order them together with fish fritters!
And you have a Tex Mex fish and chips!
Excellent fried fish on its own, actually!
But check the rest of the menu!
Always something to discover!
