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.

More tourist centred than most beer bars in Tokyo. Menus in English and the staff understands English fairly well. Food was nice with a lot of small dishes, rather cheap or in the case of Happy Hour free with the beer. The tap selection is excellent, but donít change frequently. Not a problem when touristing, but not a place to go to every day. You can get a nice souvenir membership card. It is a nice pub with great service and a nice selection, but feels a bit too much for tourists and not genuine.

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.

Visited on a Tuesday evening in August 2013.
The place was crowded so we were forced to sit outside in the very hot evening. I only tried four beers due to jetlag, but I must say that I really liked this place. Cozy with a very friendly staff, even the owner came out to greet us.
The selection was very good, a lot of japanese beers that I had never heard of. They also have some American/Belgian beers, but who travels all the way to Tokyo drink American/Belgian beer?
Prices were good, cheaper than in Stockholm. That was a nice suprise! I also liked the concept of free food during happy hour between 5 pm to 8 pm.
A must visit when visiting Tokyo, easy to find, close to the Ryogoku Station.

Second visit in 2014. Bloody hell, what a place on a good day when itís not crazy busy. Seemingly endless supply f keg and cask Japanese micros. Not one of the were off. Yeah, they do food - good food too, but I hardly could lift my eyes from the beer list. Great service. World class.

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.

Easily claims a rightful place as one of the best craft beer barson the planet. A little off the tourist beat but itís only 2 minutes from Ryogoku station which is on the JR Chuo line so shouldnít be too hard. Assualted by a legion of staff in such a lovingly polite and warm way that only the Japanese can do. Whilst there are 70 beers on tap you will likely only focus of 45 - 50 (that is if you are here for a drink and not to tick) given the remainder are small pours (100 to 180ml) at around 800 yen. Of course probably fair enough given they are high end high abv styles. The happy hour deal (ie free smal plates of certain beers) is awesome. Worth getting here early as it seems to fill up quickly. Never have I ever experienced such an upbeat friendly vibe (Romeís Football pub runs a very close and honest second).

More japanese craft beers on tap than you will have time to sample at once. I do recommend the BIG sampler with 10 x 20 cl. They where kind enough to let me have them served one by one since I kept a record of what I was having. Friendly knowledgable staff and enthusiastic beer sampling guests along the bar. The owner was a true beer lover who immediately pointed me in the direction of one of the finest brews Iíve ever tasted - a barley wine from Niwa. A beer moment to remember...
Didnít have any food, although it looked good.
A Tokyo Must!

Finally got to Popeyeís after coming to Tokyo many times over the last few years and it didnít disappoint. At a time when the craft beer scene has seen a proflieration of new bars, Popeyeís 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 itís pricey, but in a couple of hours I had five beers, three of which were some of the best Iíve 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. Itís 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.

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.
