Nice place, pretty small with seating for about 25, but nice atmosphere. Service was good and food was nice too. 13 taps and there was enough interesting stuff for a few drinks. 5 different glass sizes which is a bit of a novelty, but I suspect most will stick to the small, regular and large. Nice that they donít seem to put the price up for stronger beers which most places seem to do. Probably wonít be a regular as it is a bit out of the way for me, but will definitely pop in if I am in the area or if they have something on that I want to drink. They have their taplist on their website.

A bit far from the central Tokyo but access is easy enough with Chuo line. The bar is right in front of the station (south exit).
Bar itself is really small but theyíve had free seats every time Iíve been there. Beer selection is usually very nice with a couple of Japanese beers they seem to have every day and the rest foreign and Japanese brews that rotate daily (an up-to-date list can be found on their website)
The owner and staff are friendly and the service is really good.

Really like this bar. Not the most beautiful bar or the greatest atmosphere. It is out inthe sticks a bit but the beer selection is the reason why I go here, together with the quality of the beer. The owner knows his stuff. 12 taps plus 1 handpump. They often get beers before other bars and sometimes they have rare beers or even ones that I have never seen in Japan before. Keep your eye on their website, you may just get tempted to head out there. Food looked nice and what I had tasted fine. The fish and chips did indeed look large and quite good value. Had some fantastic beer the last time I was there, including Vertical Epic08.08.08 and Gambrinus, A few stations away from Bicke (looks interesting) and Holic (which I donít recommend).

Easiest beer bar to find in Tokyo hands down. Small place that can seat only 20 people max. More like a cafe atmosphere than bar, still impressed with the 13 beers on offer (no bottles). Constantly rotating selection (I had Iwate Kura Smoked Ale and Shiga Kogen IIPA) with average prices (900 yen US pint/ 1100 yen for UK pint). Food was cheap (everything under 1000 yen) and portions (especially Fish and Chips) were bigger than usual and of decent quality. I also like the fact you could sample any beer for 200 yen, which is a rareity in Tokyo. Not worth a special trip, but if you are in the area (West Tokyo), definetely worth a stop over.

New beer bar in West Tokyo. Gambrinus is a small cozy place. 12 tap and 1 hand pump. Mostly Japanese micros and few macros. Taps are constantly rotating. Bottle selection is ...Ah,no selection. Only one bottoled beer is ... barbar, when I visit. Why barbar?
Bar ower is friendly and knowledgeable.
One minute walk from south exit of Kokubunji station. Just the opposite side of the station,donít miss the signboard on slim bldg.
