El Borracho, a Fukuoka-based Mexican restaurant with shops throughout the city as well as Tokyo (and even Cancun!) has added a craft beer bar and grill to its lineup: Fukuoka Craft. Located in the heart of Daimyo, the shop has an open kitchen visible from the street that serves up Mexican BBQ, craft tequila and 10 kinds of craft beer on tap. For a quick bite, try the carnitas—pulled pork tacos topped with guacamole. Prefer dining more leisurely? Try their tapas menu. Not only do they sell craft beers, they brew their own. Michigan native David Victor brews pale ales, hazy IPAs, and seasonal beers every day in the on-site craft beer brewery. Relax with good food and great beer as you people-watch!
