We visited Popey’s 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.

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.

NO WAY! If you stay in Tokyo, even just for one night, you have to go at Popeye!

This is my goto-bar whenever i happen to be in tokyo. Get here early as it fills up pretty quickly. About 70 beers on tap and a few of them are real-ales. The selection is good but the rotation of brews is a bit so-so. They always seem to have a bunch of barleywines on draught which is a rare treat. If you come here between 5-8pm certain beer includes a half plate of snacks which makes the prices somewhat more tolerable and almost good value. Service is usually quite good even tho staff speaks very little english. A must visit when in Tokyo.

Was sure to make it here for my first beer in Tokyo, as a right of passage, or something like that. I won’t 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.

First things firts; their website should be called " 70beersontap " not 40beersontap ... because they have 70 brews, almost all of them from micro breweries from all over the world. The choice is amazing, I had Brewdog Dogma there for example.. the staff is very friendly ( like most japanese people anyway ) and the place itself is very cool... Micro brews from Japan, U.S, U.K and their home made brews make this place a fantastic spot almost worth a trip to Tokyo itself... An unforgetable experience as far as I am concerned...

A fun place that serves many types of beer in Japan. The spot is a great place to visit if you are in Tokyo.

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)

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 better value for money. 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 didn’t feel overcrowded, just a great atmosphere.
