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.

Sometimes too much of a good thing is bad. This place has a huge selection, is chaotic busy and service is crazy. Although it has everything a beer geek wants, sitting and drinking a beer itself is hard. Go, it is fun but hard to take seriously. Also on the pricey side.

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 trip.

Amazing place with 76 beers on tap. Close to Ryogoku Railway station in a side street. Very busy, enthusiastic service, standard Tokyo prices, western music played, English Premier league football on TV, English beer menu & staff speak English. Great atmosphere. The place to go for beer in Tokyo.

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.

A must if you are visiting Tokyo, they have a tasting set which is great and a fantastic happy hour! During happy hour all beers on the menu marked with a * come with a free half-dish of food - great value. As everyone says, probably the best selection of draft beer in Japan with friendly knowledgeable staff.

Came here after spending a good few hours in Akihabara during my October 2013 trip. Once you find the street itís on, itís hard to miss with the giant glowing pint glass on the exterior. Kind of a small bar area though seating wasnít an issue, though I did go within an hour of them opening Monday night. Very nice selection of draft beers along with a few casks. Ordering seems to be mostly through the servers rather than the bartender, both were very nice despite the language barrier. Didnít order food but received a complimentary small plate of beef stew or something of the sort, pretty tasty. Complimentary food with beers during happy hour though I ordered smaller sizes which donít seem applicable for that offer. Food seemed like mostly pub fare along with some Japanese and Italian style dishes. Customers seemed to be a mix of locals and foreigners. I prefer Craftheads in Shibuya but would like to return here on my next trip for another try.
