Popeye’s opens at 5pm thats great if you finish work at 5, but a tourist looking for a good beer before 5pm is probably out of luck. Was welcomed warmly by the staff and seated at the bar (my favourite place to sit) staff spoke English and were friendly, customers were quite a diverse range of people. The food was quite good, there was a Halloween special on so themed pumpkin beers and themed food. The beer selection was great, started off with a 10 tray tempter, about 120ml of the beers under about 7% and 60ml of beers over7%.
Awesome place! I went to go back once more, but they were closed due to just having taken a large role in the Nippon beer festival (which was also awesome)

This place feels like the Great Lost Bear transplanted to Tokyo. Huge taplist with heavy emphasis on Japanese craft. Menu subdivided by style. Everything from classics to seasonals to their own-brand to hop filter infused beers. Very popular. Get there when they open to beat the crowd, which is thick, loud, and sociable. They have a great happy-hour special where you get a free appetizer with every beer, so if you have a few you get free dinner! There are also lots of discounts for regular customers. Prices for beer are normal for Tokyo. Lots of fun, lots of great beer! Must visit.

This was one of the first places I visited in Japan and I was rewarded with a huge dose of culture shock. Incredibly busy and raucous atmosphere (on a Monday night), really difficult to get a bartender’s attention, endless cries of ’Irrashaimase!’ whenever someone walked in... I didn’t know what was going on! Anyway, I returned two weeks later, having travelled around Japan, gained an understanding of their bar culture, and this time I had an absolute blast.
What did not change between visits was the quality of the beer. Ridiculous number of taps, all kinds of styles represented, menu updated daily on their website... what more do you want? It’s a great place to get acquainted with Japanese beer, and a must-visit whilst in Tokyo. But learn from my mistake and prepare yourself for the culture shock if this is your first time in Japan.

Excellent place in Tokyo. I like how the focus is on the Japanese stuff and not just flogging off all international stuff although there is plenty of that, too. The food is great and service is also great. Definitely check it out.

More like a restaurant with bar than a pub. Crowded with excellent selection of beers which are available on sample plates. Good place to spot Japanese micros. If you want a peaceful evening, don’t come. Even personnel is boisterous. One of the must-go places in Tokyo for sure.

Stopped by on a Saturday night. Despite it being rainy and poor weather the place was packed. I’d recommend a reservation. If you stop by more often, you may want to get a member’s card (I got one! So rb’ers, don’t hesitate to drop me a line if you’re in town)
The beers are unfortunately quite large pours (9 oz or so) so sampling is not really possibly unless you have a few people and go for the 10 glass sampler.
Prices are typically Tokyo prices for 500-700 yen for the 9 oz pours.
Selection can be hit or miss but last time they had fresh Ballast Point’s Victory at Sea on tap. They also have a small bottle shop in front that may be worth your time if you’re looking to take stuff home.
Food is mostly pub food but good enough to keep you full.
My only complaint is that everyone is placed practically shoulder to shoulder together and it’s rough to move around even a bit.

Most amount of taps in Tokyo. Service was amazing for how packed the place was. Food was severely underwhelming, but let’s be honest we’re all hear for the beer. Quite cramped without much room between tables. They were out of quite a bit that I wanted to order, so going early is probably recommended. A little on the pricey side. A must-go based on selection but once is probably enough.

Finally got to Popeye’s after coming to Tokyo many times over the last few years and it didn’t disappoint. At a time when the craft beer scene has seen a proflieration of new bars, Popeye’s still tops the lot. For one simple reason. It has a huge amount of Japanese micros on tap plus a range of American imports. Yes it’s pricey, but in a couple of hours I had five beers, three of which were some of the best I’ve had in Japan and one of which was a new all time favourite Japanese beer. Go between 5-8 and you get a complimentary food dish with each beer ordered. It’s very busy but a great place to meet people, especially if you are alone. Service is outstanding and the regulars are also very friendly and knowledgable. I got some great advice on beers to order.

Good restaurant with an awesome selection of japanese craft beers on tap. Poor and extremely expensive selection of non-japanese beers.
Food is ok. Complimentary food with some beers from the tap list if you order before 8pm.
If you are an IPA lover you can find some little treasures like Baird Beer Suruga Bay IPA and Coedo Session IPA.
