Well, this is an interesting place. More than half the people sitting at the bar were Japanese, I did not expect that. Bartender was very friendly and efficient, but did not speak English; that did not slow us down at all. I like the free food with certain beers during happy hour. And the selection is unbeatable. Classic place.

Was sure to make it here for my first beer in Tokyo, as a right of passage, or something like that. I wonít bang on about how many taps and such, you know the deal by reading the reviews. I will say though that its a great introduction to Japanese beer with the majority of taps repping local, and cask too. Be sure to come by during happy hour, where they will sort you a free plate of food when ordering selected beers on the list. It makes the overall value just that little more attractive. Great service from the bartender and staff - fast and reliable. Such a fun environment to get your drink on in Tokyo.

Now with 70 beers on tap and a knowledgeable staff, it is still the place to sample the best beers Japan has to offer. Good specials, so be sure to become a member if you are going more than once), free food during happy hour (5-8). Beers in perfect condition. Try the Hop Heart Randall. Good vintage Barley wines on tap. You can try several different tasting courses as well. That said, the beers donít really change all that much. This wonít matter for travelers, though people living here might have trouble finding something new.

We visited Popeyís on 15th and 16th of February 2013. This is indeed a very unique place and everything is related to good beer. They have 70 beers on tap, half of them are from Japanese Microbreweries, which was clearly our focus. They had 2 excellent ales from the hand pump (Yo-ho Brewing: Yona Pale Ale, Tokyo Black Porter). I also liked the cask conditioned ales, my favorit was the Ale best bitter from Hinomaru. I have never had so good British ales outside of the UK. Also the 2 Weizen they had were delicious - one pale and one dark, chocolate Weizen both from Fujizakura kougen brewery. Furthermore I was delighted by the smoked beer from the same brewery (Fujizakua kougen Rauch). We finished the evening with an ale from Ska Brewing, they also have beers from Brew Dog, Mikkeller, Victory, Lost Coast, Rogues and many more.
The place is very small but has a great atmosphere, service is outstanding, decoration is great (they have a picture showing Michael Jackson when he visited this place in 2005) and on a TV wall they show either sport or beer trailers from e.g. Duvel. We were lucky to get a place, would recommend to book a table in advance. Food is good too, you get half portion of Pizza, sausages,... during Happy Hour by ordering selected beers, nice idea. Overall a place with great beers and real beer culture and a must visit during a Tokyo visit.

Great place to get a good beer. Sorta on the small side, but they make up for it in their beer selection. Great selection of Japanese beers as well as many Rogue brews on tap and a few world beers. Also had many vintage brews on tap, had a eight year old Brown Ale that was fantastic. Had about three hand pumps offering many exciting and rare brews. the staff was very friendly and helpful even though I donít speak much Japanese. A couple of them knew enough english to make ordering a breeze. The patrons were also very friendly and had some great reccomendations. A great bar, one of my all time favorites.

An absolute must if you are in Tokyo. It is located within a couple of blocks from where sumo tournaments are held, which could be beneficially if you are just visiting Tokyo.
The interior is basic, but nice. The staff are attentive, quick and know their stuff (plus some of them can speak English to some degree). The beers are second to none with lots of Japanese micros, including some vintage barely wines. They also have three cask conditioned beers running at all times. Their international selection is not bad either with HOTD Fred and Adam on tap and a handful of Rogue beers.
Mr. Aoki the owner is very friendly and speak English quiet well (I think). There is an English menu and their happy hour special from 5-8 gives you a half order of food when you order certain pints on the menu.
The only downside to all of this is prices are VERY expensive compared to N. America. Expect to pay $7-8 US/Pint (incl. tax and no tip needed). However, if you save your pennies i

40 Japanese microbrews on tap, all of them, as far as I can tell, good. Being served Japanese microbrew on cask is likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Excellent service, ok food, and a nice place. What more really needs to be said? If you want to try Japanese microbrew, this is the place to go.

Visited in spring of 2008 and could have sworn Iíd already rated it. I came here three times during my visit to Japan, and it was absolutely one of the best beer places Iíve ever been. The service is INSANE, but part of the reason for that is simply the Japanese culture; people were incredibly polite and respectful everywhere I went, but especially so here. One of the nights I asked one of the bartenders where to get sushi in the area (since I hadnít had any since Kyoto), and after some discussion amongst themselves, the guy ESCORTS ME down the street a few blocks and opens the door to a sushi restaurant. I kept saying repeatedly that he didnít have to do that, just give me basic directions and Iíll find it myself. Nope, he walked me out in his formal attire. Unreal. On top of that? They invited me to participate in a private beer judging on-site on off-hours! And yes, I went, and I think out of pure respect they picked my favorite as the overall winner. Is this even reality? Fantastic selection, AMAZING people, and just plain one (three) of the all-time best beer experiences Iíve ever had in my life. I hope very much to return someday.

First went here a few years ago when they advertised as 40 beers on tap, and now they are up to 70. A great place, particularly during their happy hour(s) (5-8) where if you buy certain beers you get a free tapas dish, making it pretty good value for money. Service is excellent and friendly, so many staff and very helpful. Got to go here if you are in Tokyo. Plenty of Japanese micros to choose from and some well chosen imports too. Could spend a fortune and get into a very bad way here! We got here about 5 minutes after opening and it was already filling up, but even at its busiest it didnít feel overcrowded, just a great atmosphere.
