I really love this place and go there more than once a week while I’m in Tokyo.
Their beer selection is the best at this moment in Tokyo since the owner imports some of beer personally. You cannot find some of them out of this place.
Please don’t miss their burgers and pizza. Staff sometimes are not able to communicate in English fluently, but no worry: they are lovely enough to take your order and assist your request.

Famous bar in Shibuya with lots of hand-carried American imports on tap and a huge bottle list as well. Lots of rare beers can be had here for large sums of money. The taps are priced a little more competitively but still expensive for Tokyo. I usually stick to the Japanese taps which are priced more competitively. The bacon burger was awesome. In a dark basement which is kind of annoying to me, but non-smoking and English menus for food and beer.

American style bar with a huge tap and bottle selection (mostly us but lots of japanese micros as well). I was there during its IPA week, so the whole tap list was dedicated to the lovely ipa category.

Stopped by cos I heard they have 3 Floyds.(The only place I know of that does in Japan). The place is clean and upbeat. A lotta expats hanging around.
Stopped by in the middle of Japan spring break and had two 200 ml pours for about 1400 yen. The prices are insane but well worth it if you’re looking for some of these really rare brews in Japan (Lost Abbey’s Cuvee de Tomme for 4400)
Unfortunately for us expats that is the price we must pay.

This is more like a pub with some food than a restaurant with bar. Although it appearently wants to be American craft beer bar, visit here for Japanese micros is must too while in Tokyo. But some interesting US stuff on tap too (more on bottles, although the most interesting ones were sold out). Service was friendly.

We visited 1.3.2015. Nice beer bar with a good Whiskey selection. They have many quite rare US beers on tap, many beers from Pizza Port and Lost Abbey (bottle). Although they had some rarities, did not like the selection too much, as just a few craft beers from Japan an no IPA on the menu. We had a Sake beer, which was interesting.

I really enjoy Craft Heads when I visit. The price for bottles can be a bit too expensive but it’s no bother to me as I usually opt for something on tap.
Basement bar on a little winding street in Shibuya, so no outside view to speak of inside, but it is decorated quited nicely. Has a very lived-in feel which is a necessary attribute if I am trying to relax. Very long bar with a few tables behind. I prefer the bar.

This is a great little bar with a medium sized but expertly chosen selection of foreign beers. The first thing I noticed once inside was the half dozen or so different bottles from Hair of the Dog Brewery from Portland, OR, where I live. Even in Portland, those are excellent beers. Friendly and helpful staff steered me toward a couple of fine Japanese beers on tap. I was not disappointed.
This place is not so easy to find; you certainly won’t stumble across it while wandering. From the Shibuya train station, head north toward the huge yellow signs for Tower Records. From the main entrance, cross the street to the west and toward the TGI Fridays, and turn north just before it. Go north one block until the street curves, then north another block past Freak’s. The pub is a small almost unmarked storefront. Go down, and walk into a small pub with a lovely wooden bar and thick wooden tables.
They had 11 foreign beers on tap, and 9 Japanese. They also had bottles from Hair of the Dog, Commons, Three Floyds, Bruery, Founders, Alesmith, Lost Abbey, and Stone. Japanese beers were about 1000 yen each. Foreign were pricey at 1200 to more than 2000 yen for a glass or bottle. 750 ml of the foreign beers could be 4500 yen. I suppose importing is expensive. Since I can get the American beers back home, I stuck with the Japanese beers and wasn’t disappointed. Bottles are refrigerated, and can be opened at the bar or carried out.

Nice little bourbon and craft beer bar tucked away in Shibuya. Nice selection of drafts with what seems to be an equal amount of Japanese and imports (U.S., Europe, etc.). Very nice bottle list with breweries including Three Floyds and Hair of the Dog. Bartenders are very nice and talkative despite the language barrier. Some of the small plates/starters are a bit small portioned but the food is solid.

Very nice underground bar. Modern and trendy with a huge bar. Self serve water, which in love. Impressive selection including 3 Floyds. Owner is an English speaking beer geek and staff are reasonably helpful. Prices are a bit step though. A really good stop.
