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)

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

Not just my favourite craft bar in Japan, but one of my favourites in the world. Absolutely awesome. If you can only visit one place in Japan, make it Popeye.

Just returned from the weekend in Tokyo and my third visit to this great pub. They have a fantastic Japanese Microbrew stock assortment, a friendly knowledgeable staff and good food as well (Great Oysters on the half shell with Iwate Kura Oyster Stout!) I also highly recommend the Hakusekikan Super Vintage Ale and Swan Lake IPA, both top notch brews and two of the better Japanese made beers I’ve had.

Top notch place. Out of everywhere I’ve drunk beer, this place would be close to the best. Huge selection of very high quality brews, many of which you’ll only find either here or at the brewery.
I was lucky enough to chat to the "master" on a busy Saturday night and he really seems like he knows his stuff.
The food is quite good without being anything special, but it goes great with the beer and the "Happy hour" between 5 and 8 is well worthwhile.
Not the cheapest place to eat and drink, but you wouldn’t expect it to be (and I’ve certainly paid much more for less).
Overall: no complaints at all, I can’t wait to go back again (sadly, it may not be for a while).

The staff greets everyone who walks through the door, everyone is very friendly and has good service. The food is varied so that the beer. They have good prices and a cozy atmosphere. Visited the place twice and the first time I got a gold card member. thought it filed its own nich in the whole place and a nice memory to take home. The negative as a tourist "if you do not want to meet other tourists’ one should not visit this place. menus huh light and understanding and the staff could good English.

Just have to update this... was there two weeks ago. They now have Randalls.... pretty cool.
Every trip to Tokyo should make this the number 1 priority for beer lovers. The staff is great, incredibly friendly, they remember you and welcome you if you go more than once. The bar ’master’ (owner) is more that gracious and generous wiht his beer once he knows you. I’ve been treated to beers that were off menu often. The selection of American beers is great (they always keep some Stone, Rogue, and believe it or not HoTD around - once had Doggie Claws from a cask !!!). The selection of Japanese beers is excellent. Aoki-san (the owner) is very selective so taste preferences aside, every japanese beer you try here is top notch. Not an elegan pretentious place but a place to have a great beer session in Tokyo.

Popeye’s is easily the best beer bar I’ve been to in Japan, and certainly deserves a spot among the world’s best beer bars. Why?
For starters, the atmosphere is great. Tucked away just a stone’s throw from Ryougoku station, the nondescript exterior might lead a few searching for some good brew to pass it by. But inside lies a traditional American pub style brewpub. Sleek counters, wooden tables, appropriate glassware and beer decor- and to top it all off, a huge list of the day’s available brews on tap. Yes, this is proper.
The quality is phenomenal re the beers. I’m originally from the Bay Area and frequent quite a few of the craft beer mainstays there and I still see brews at Popeye’s from the US (and Europe) that I have never seen on tap. Not to mention the unrivaled Japanese craft beer selection.
The service is attentive and helpful. I haven’t gotten into any huge conversations with the staff yet BUT they’ve always been really quick to pour me a brew. And you kill the keg, get 9/10 of a beer- its on the house. Maybe with a complimentary appetizer (which has happened to me twice).
Selection- I’ll just list a few I’ve gotten here on draft:
Swan Lake Weizen
Swan Lake Belgian IPA
Swan Lake Golden Ale
Vamp Imperial Black Ale
Great Divide Oaked Yeti Imperial Stout
Cantillon Geuze (bottle)
Mikkeller Nugget IPA
Augst Winter White Ale
The list goes on... usually 40 on draft and a bunch of bottles are available.
The food is typical pub fare, but with a few extra treats thrown in. Hop infused sausages and emu sashimi are fresh in my memory.
Value- expect to pay about $11/pint. That’s actually good for Tokyo. And the food is a deal.
All in all, if you are a craft beer head and are in Japan, you should not miss this for anything. It will be worth your while.
