Antenna America is the retail bottle shop/tasting room for Nagano Trading, the sole distributor for Stone, Green Flash, Ballast Point and Lagunitas (among other breweries) to bars and restaurants all across Japan since 2006. Their commitment to preserving the quality and hop character of their beer ensures that the beer is brewery-fresh. In fact, if you taste a beer imported by Nagano Trading that is not in great condition, please let us know so we can work to improve our process.
Around Japan, "Antenna shops" are run by a number of Japan's prefectures, cities and regions as a means to introduce and market themselves, as well as to acquire a sense of consumer trends and tastes outside their own borders.
True to their name, Tokyo's antenna shops both send and receive information—and while these transmissions are intended to communicate, they also aim to transport visitors to the Japan that exists beyond Tokyo.
We used this concept as the foundation when creating Antenna America, our retail bottle shop/tasting room in Yokohama. In here, everything you see is from America. From the amazingly fresh craft beer to the buffalo chicken wings slathered with sauces from Stone Brewing to the music. It's all the things you miss about America, right here in the Yokohama, the sister city to San Diego.
Please stop in and see what we've got!
