Bairdís is one of my favorite brew-haunts in Tokyo.
The place itself is small but nice. It has a smooth, traditional izakaya style wood-paneled bar. All the seats and tables are also made out of richly colored wood. It looks pretty slick.
The service is great. The bartender is good at both Japanese and English. He is extremely knowledgeable about beer and all around seems like a nice guy. Food gets to your spot promptly, and good recommendations are offered when requested.
The selection is great. Anywhere from 12-17 beers are available on tap, with 2 on the hand pump.
The food is traditional izakaya fare, with most items costing about 500Y (6 bucks in todays market). Everything Iíve had has been tasty.
All in all, the pints are a bit pricey (1000Y). However, you donít get that much microbrew in Tokyo and the food is cheap. Iíll support them without a second thought.

Small cosy pub located in a backstreet of the young, popular and trendy Harajuku area. Serves most of Baird brews even though selection can be a little shorter than Naka-Meguro. Menu is focused on izakaya-style food with popular skewers, rice bowls and other tasty Japanese snacks. A nice option when in the Shibuya area, and one of the rare places opened for lunch on weekends.

Rather pleasant little bar, friendly staff, huge range of exclusively (I think) Baird beers, tasty bar snacks. Iíd come back. Iíd have given the selection higher marks but on the evidence of todayís selection you kind of need to like pale ales and not too distant cousins.

I went here 2-3 years ago when it was fairly new. Smack in the middle of Harajuku there was a small taproom with good Baird Beers & decent prices. At that time the service was ok but diｄnít wow me or anything-average. The selection was the normal range of Baird but I donít think they had 17 taps then more like 5-8. I guess Iíll have to check it out again sometime.

Great selection of great Baird beer. Fair prices for both beer and food. I always seem to find myself here at lunch, so canít speak as to the atmosphere in the evening. Well worth a visit, especially for lunch, as you wont find many other places open.

If I was leaving in Tokyo I would probably go there every day! The bar is the right size and very well presented. This is for Baird beers to obviously you wonít expect to drink other beers. Food is great too. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect too. You must go there when in Tokyo!

Nice intimate place at the end of an alley, just 5 min from Harajuku station. Nombei card gets you 12 pints for the price of ten, so good if you are a local or with a group. Good selection of excellent Baird beer. Food menu is limited but what we had was pretty tasty.

Cool place in a awesome suburb. I love Harajuku. The Harajuku ale, I loved it Edamame was nice, not the way we serve it over here, but when in Japan..
Cool place, a good respite from the madness of the streets.

Really nice place. Decor is all wood with a few tables and lots of bench seating. Atmosphere was good when it was busy and also when it was quieter. Service was great and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Food great too, and plenty of stuff for veggies. They had 15 kegs and 2 cask going when we visited, naturally all Baird. If you are going to have a few ask for the nonbei card and you will get 12 for the price of 10. We spent a fortune here, but the prices are not excessively higher than other places. Just couldnít stop eating and drinking. Will definitely be going back.

Solid little Izakaya like place. Easy to find just to the left of the main street in Harajuku when you get off the train. No guest taps. Lots of wood, like the Naka meguro location, but not as caverous and therefore more intimate. Good stop if you wanna check out the crazy that is Harajuku.
