Came here after Craft Heads, was a bit underwhelmed. They do have lots of taps, split between imports and Japanese micros. Some more interesting than the others. Somehow I preferred the atmosphere in CH. On the other hand I was pretty pissed when I came in so maybe my perception wasnít the best. Certainly worth checking out.
Trendy bar in Shibuya area, 5 minutes from the famous crossing. There is a big bar and plenty of tables and seats. Selection is fair and service is ok, it was a bit loud. Beers are the normal Tokyo price, so have your wallet ready. In my opinion, beers were served too fast (less than a minute) after ordering, not letting it pose and be in perfect serving condition.
Very easy to find as you can make the place out if you are standing in front of H&M. Often populated most nights of the week.
Range is pretty good, the menu gives a good level of information for the beers on tap.
So you can definitely track down a beer you will like. The set up is clean and professional. Itís been pretty busy most times Iíve been and have had minimal conversation with the staff so cant really comment on their knowledge, but the menu and selection speaks for itself.
It is a good safe bet.
We visited this beer bar on 27.2.2015. It is located in a very popular district with many bars and restaurants. Decorated with brewery memorabilia mainly signboards from US micros and rare beer bottles. The bar is very professional with the original brewery tap covers. Was very crowded when we came on a Friday night, half Westerners half Japanese guests. Service was extremely polite. Great ale selection - 40 draft beers on tap - 1 hand pump - half of them are from Japanese micros. In addition a real great selection of global beers: Green Flash, Stone and even PIZZA PORT!!!! Fantastic smoked porter on hand pump - NIDE beer - GBF Smoke Pump Stout (BAIRD), was an absolute highlight. Also some good bottles available, we had a Schlenkerla Mšrzen. In the menu the available beers are structured by styles (lager, IPA,..) and the brewery symbols + locations are displayed, also very professional. Very very very good place !!!
I guess for Tokyo this is a good beer bar. Stopped by during a business trip. The menu is organized by the beer. They do have an English speaker on staff (Erin from Michigan) but donít expect any of them to be a lot of help for a beer geek.
The beers are incredibly expensive -￥850 for half a pint!! But I guess that goes for Tokyo.
They had food but I didnít bother. As for ambiance, theyíre typical Japanese - good polite service, etc. Itís alright if youíre looking for some craft beer but not terribly interesting.
Good Beer Faucets is located in a very busy area in Shibuya. The beers on tap usually represent a mix of Japanese and import. Imports are heavy on American. The food is very good here. The place appears to have the cleanest tap lines and bar area in the world. Has a bit of a 1950ís malt shop meets modern socal surf shop. Not sure if that makes any sense, but thatís the vibe I get.
Decent sized bar located on the second floor right up the steps with an awkward looking door handle. A bit of a walk from Shibuya Station but not bad. Good amount of bar seating and some tables. Seems a bit smaller than their Hakata location.
Japanese and import beers on draft with one hand pump. Good amount of their house beers available. Like the Hakata location, 200 yen off full glasses during happy hour is a good deal.
Only tried the margherita pizza for food which was good but a bit dense/doughy crust. Menu looked pretty similar to Hakata with a few different items.
Service was fine, a few English fluent foreign staff made ordering a bit easier. None of the staff were too talkative outside of ordering. Preferred the Hakata location but worth a stop especially during happy hour.
