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 Iíve had.

Found it on the first day of my trip after being awake for 24 hours. Tasted 35 beers on draft. 34 tasters and 1 small one. Had the luck someone did the same. He did not like the Barley wines so i could take them after he tasted them first. Had a real good staying there. Got me a gold membership card

The best beer bar in Tokyo, possibly Japan, possibly Asia. If visiting Tokyo, go here first. If you also want to buy beer then visit Takanaya. That`s about it. The staff speaks the most basic English it seems, but I speak a little Japanese, so we mostly conversed in Japanese. I got there early, and the staff was tasting a bunch of beers themselves. $5 for 3/4 pint on average. Get the 10 beer taster for $15. The bar is supposed filled with foriegners on weekends, but on the early weekday I was there it had only a few Japanese. I had three great beers and two small dishes for $33.

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.

Great place to get a good beer. Sorta on the small side, but they make up for it in their beer selection. Great selection of Japanese beers as well as many Rogue brews on tap and a few world beers. Also had many vintage brews on tap, had a eight year old Brown Ale that was fantastic. Had about three hand pumps offering many exciting and rare brews. the staff was very friendly and helpful even though I donít speak much Japanese. A couple of them knew enough english to make ordering a breeze. The patrons were also very friendly and had some great reccomendations. A great bar, one of my all time favorites.

If you are going to Tokyo this place is a must visit. Itís a pefect rcombination of the best in Japanese hospitality and microbrewed beer in Japan. The owner and staff speak excellent English and they know their Beers. My favorites are the Hidatakayama Hefeweisen (sorry Germany) and the Shiga Kogen Miyama Blonde (uses fresh - not dry hops). Popeye is just two stops Westbound on the yellow Chiba line from the JR rail loop.

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.

Mr. Aoki has certainly established a wonderful small oasis of Japanese craft beer in this little place. Spacious compared to most bars in the area, it can fill up quickly and you will probably be rubbing elbows with a range of ex-pats to locals out to enjoy a good pint. Brass and wood furnish add to the warm cozy ambiance and a very knowledgeable staff is never too far away to make sure you need your drink freshened up. Speaking of which. Popeyeís sports 40 taps, abour 3/4 of them are Japanese Micros that are on constant rotation. A few times I have placed an order to find that it was out but with the choices there is certainly enough to keep ones interested between what they do have, the 10 or so "foreign" beers (some of which can be very rare) and 2 beers of hand pump.

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 ímasterí (owner) is more that gracious and generous wiht his beer once he knows you. Iíve 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.
