This place carries 2 of the 4 local breweries (Kyoto Machiya & Kizakura Kappa Country) but has their full ranger including the Kizakura Egyptian beer line & a Kyoto Machiya-Isetan collaboration beer. It also has a range of world beers (mostly macrobrews) with a couple of belgians and a few things I haven’t seen before (Haneda beer & Celt).
Prices are ok but finding the place is kind of annoying as the basement is somewhat maze like and it is back in a corner in one of the basements. Service is good as you’d expect from a large Japanese Department store.
I dropped by today as I happened to be on the same floor and while the Kyoto micros were still there and a few canned craft beers the selection went WAY down in variety it is not mostly generic "world beers" not worth it beyond the kyoto beers...

Well they have now reorganized everything and have a great selection of Japanese craft beer with Hitachino Nest, Minami Shinshu, some Kyoto Beers & for some odd reason a ton from Hokkaido while the selection of foreign beers has gone down..

The liquor section of the department store has some rare Japanese beers and some exclusives too. I went here periodically to check if there was anything new but most of the selection stayed the same. About 20 Kyoto Beers. Sometimes the foreign beers change a little

This liquor store in the 1st Basement of Isetan Department store is one of the better places to get beer and sake in Kyoto. If you’re heading off on a train from here, stop in and pick some up. They have all the Kyoto micros. About 40 beers, 15 are Japanese micros. There used to be more. Huge selection of local and other craft sakes, and you can sample many of them for free. They really get good sake here.
