I had the chance to try some of the offerings from Baird Beer last summer, a couple of which I enjoyed including a mikan ale.
They are available in a few taprooms around Japan

Baird's seasonal beers are always good. They go for more subtle amounts.
Taprooms are now in Osaka, Shizuoka, Hakuba, the main brewery in Izu, and three around Tokyo.

Watering Hole is superb. It is operated by Ichiri Fujiura, who was the American Homebrewers' Association's Homebrewer of the Year in 1998 {I attended that conference.}, which caused a slight problem in Japan, since the beer for which he won was higher than 1% Alcohol by Volume. I tend to go there on Sundays, since Popeye is not open, and I probably spent the earlier portion of the day photographing cosplayers {low-angle} in Akihabara.
It is actually quite close to the Shinjuku-Sanchome station on the Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin and Marunouchi lines [Exit E8], so if you do not have a J.R. pass, instead opting for a Tokyo Metro Open Ticket, you can get there.

There is a lot of good info via Rob Bright's Beer Tengoku https://beertengoku.com/
If the only on-line W-WW site accessed is facebook {I call it Dungheap, which is more accurate.}, then you have dropped off the face of the earth AFAIAC. Dungheap is blocked on my browsers' Hosts lists.
Psst, bunky, if you had clicked through to my bookmark page, you would have glimpsed BeerTengoku on it. I have made several replies to its posts.

I have a 10-beer frequent drinker card from Baird Brwy. If you dig deeply enough on-line (which, if you haven't bothered to actually click on the link to my bookmark page, you won't locate), you might find the photographs I took of its first anniversary in Naka-Meguro in May 2009 (My first jaunt there with a camera.).

I hear that's a great program for folks who frequently drink 10 beers.
