amazing selection of japanese beers, with an emphasis on more unusual styles, like oyster stout, barley wine and double ipa. not a cheap place to drink, although the sample tray is decent value. i was lucky enough to meet kyoto lefty there, which made it an even better night out

The only place in Tokyo I simply had to go to twice. I was in town for the Tokyo Real Ale Festival on the same weekend, which Popeye is essentially the promoter of. The Japanese draft beer list was so impressive I couldnít do it all in one night. It was almost too good to be true, and I wondered if the selection was especially good just because the festival was that weekend so everybody was there and they pulled out all the stops. Regardless, if thatís how it is all the time at Popeye, I would consider this one of the essential beer bars in the world. Their ďdisplay kitchenĒ-style cask beer systems behind the bar are really cool. Staff was fabulous. Easily the best selection of Hakusekikan beers I found (though I think Ushi-Tora had more Baird). More importantly, Popeye had the greatest range of adventurous styles to choose from. Many of the bars have a lot of Ji-biru beers, but they are often all in the 4%-6% amber, pale, ESB range...kind of like US craft beer bars were 10-12 years ago. Not that you

Extensive selection of obscure and difficult-to-find Japanese beers on tap. Very friendly, helpful, attentive staff. Some of the beers are a bit expensive, but worth it in the end considering that you are not likely to find them elsewhere. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, and can get a bit rowdy as it gets more crowded. A great place, a visit is absolutely necessary if you are in the Tokyo area.

I will completely echo the previous rating- if you want to sample the various beers of Japan without travelling all over the country, this is the place to go. Incredible selection of Japanese micros, impeccable service, good food, this is the one place any beer lover should go to while visiting Japan.

70 beers on tap? sounds perfect. Yet occasionally I turn up and the beers advertised have ran out and there is nothing I really want to pay good money for. Saying that, the number of times Iíve been there and the beers I hoped to have were no longer being served, I could almost always count on something that I knew and loved. Service is fast (sometimes maybe a bit too fast) and your beer arrives in no time. Is it just me or is the quality of the pint slowly going down? There have been many times when Iíve drank a certain beer there and it seemed a little flat or lifeless and know that Iíve had it better in another bar. This has happened on more than one occasion. However, their selection canít be beaten (from fruit beers to stouts to barley wines to American IPAs) and the atmosphere here is electric, when itís busy and things really get going. The mecca for beer lovers in Japan. Food is not so bad but a tad expensive, like the beer. Take advantage of their OhSama set and get a free small foo

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.
