Stopped by on a Saturday night. Despite it being rainy and poor weather the place was packed. Iíd recommend a reservation. If you stop by more often, you may want to get a memberís card (I got one! So rbíers, donít hesitate to drop me a line if youíre 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 Pointís Victory at Sea on tap. They also have a small bottle shop in front that may be worth your time if youíre 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 itís rough to move around even a bit.

The place is located right by the sumo arena. A very good selection of beers. Food is ok, but the place gets crowded. Knowledgable staff.

Very happy to have been there to celebrate my birthday. I discovered many Japanese beers that I enjoyed very much. Happy Hour beers with something to eat on the side is a great idea. Prices are normal Tokyo prices so a bit more than in Europe even for local beers. Overall great staff, great beers and great fun!

A must stop for Tokyo. Great beer selection and knowledgeable staff. My only suggestion was to pour the beer with a little head as filling the pint glass to the brim with beer is not necessary.

Wonderful place. Occasionally holds unbelievable events - was lucky enough to attend Phredís beer tasting there. Go here if you like beer and ever are in Tokyo.
Update: Over the years that I lived near Popeye I tended to check in about once a month and I definitely think that my experience has gotten worse. The staff seems more stressed out and less convivial. I also havenít been as impressed by the selection as in the past - which to say that it isnít still quite good, just that for all the taps there sometimes doesnít seem to be anything that stands out.

The place with largest selection I could find in Japan. The staff was very kind and I could make an order of ten beers in one tasting plate using English language, pen and paper. The list on chalkboard was not up to date or then I just didnít understand what it was for. But the paper list they provided worked well. Some Japanese rarities and imports from USA too. They also had two íowní beers to taste. I will definitely come here again if I ever visit Tokyo another time.

70 beers on tap, almost of all them japanese (a few americans mostly from Rogue can be found). Definitely worth a visit, and then one more, and then one more.....

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.
