Baird Taproom Bashamichi

Truly authentic American-style BBQ prepared "Low & Slow".

This journey into low & slow American BBQ began when the Baird team meet BBQ fanatic and craft beer fan, Chuck Morrow, in the summer of 2010.  After tasting some of Chuck’s home-smoked BBQ (he had been barbecuing as an avid amateur for 35 years) we were sold!

We opened the doors of the Bashamichi Taproom – Japan’s first authentic American-style BBQ pub – in January 2011. Bashamichi Taproom BBQ reflects our deep reverence and respect for the art and craft of BBQ as it is practiced in America’s BBQ heartland: Texas, Kansas City and the Carolinas.

25 taps serve year-round and seasonal Baird Beer, as well as guest craft beer. 2 hand pumps pull a variety of Baird Beer in traditional Real Ale style, including the house Bashamichi Ale. Take-out bottle beers also are available.

Food Concept

Low & Slow. Authentic American-style BBQ.

This is the magical process of cooking and smoking meat (beef brisket, pork ribs, chicken) over a wood-fire at low temperature for several hours, rendering it juicy, tender and richly flavorful.

The BBQ menu is complemented by traditional barbecue side dishes, hand-made pizzas, fresh salads and home-made desserts. 

Burning local Japanese sakura (cherry) wood in our pit (instead of oak as is traditional) lends a subtle and unique 'Japanese' character to Bashamichi Taproom BBQ.

The Bashamichi Taproom consists of three floors: 1st floor kitchen and bar, main seating on the 2nd floor, and a roof-top beer garden and Japanese-style garden house.
 A large-screen T.V., dartboards, and regular live music highlight the entertainment on our second floor. The rooftop space is available for large groups and private parties.
Conveniently located off the historic Bashamichi in downtown Yokohama and within a 5-7 minute walk of three train stations (Sakuragicho, Kannai, and Bashamichi).
