Small bar serving Brimmer beers in a mini-sized shipping container. Easy walk from Omotesando Station.

Four of their beers on tap with one being a specialty/seasonal beer. Nicely priced glasses at 500 yen a pop, around 10-12 oz Iím guessing. Larger yard glasses and pitchers also available. Tap selection is decent for the size of the place. No bottles available when I went but they occasionally have some for sale.

No food other than some chips and other little snacks. Hit up the small chicken karaage joint next door for some tasty Japanese fried chicken.

Very friendly service from John who was happy to chat about the beer and living in Japan. Worth a stop while in Tokyo.

Somewhere on the main street between Omotesando and Gaienmae is a lonesome looking little pop-up bar, which is the Brimmer Beer Box flanked down the side by some very tasty food bars, serving stuff like chicken kariage by the weight. The beer box itself is very small but you can step outside onto the balcony down the side to drink. Range is limited to 4 beers one of which is a changing special. Beers are decent and come with a lot of attention to detail from the friendly bar staff. Worth dropping by and was a regular for lots of local gaijin and local salarymen. Cool little place with a nice vibe. Wish I could score it higher but they donít have the selection.

Small cabin on a busy main street. 5 Brimmer beers on tap and a few bottles. Very quiet. Ran by John, a friendly American barman. I went in for a quick one beer to taste, got talking and stayed for about 2 hours. Cheapest place to buy craft beer in Tokyo. I love these small beer cabins. Wish we had them at home.

Pretty awkward design that reminds of a shipping container on street level, which contrasts with its location near a very posh shopping crossing. Also has a narrow terrace on the roof. Usually serves 4 Brimmer taps (Californian ale style) even though they often run out of the seasonal one. Donít remember of any food available but you can grab some handy fried chicken next door. Nothing fancy but likely one of the cheapest pricing and in a convenient central Tokyo area.

Small place, nice enough, with a very friendly and generous staff. Four Brimmer beers on draft. Good prices. Worth a look.

I really like the early opening time of 4pm, I wish more craft places were open early(3pm or so) or for lunch because when you are just in town for a few days having to pack everything in between 5-11pm can be rough! Anyways, a nice little place in Omotesando, Matt the server was quite friendly and helpful. They have tasters(500 yen), glasses (500 yen), pitchers (3500 yen) and Yard Glasses (1000 yen) which are very reasonable prices. It has a nice central location making it easy to check out when in Shibuya and the vibe is a really chill standing bar. The only downside was the selection, just 4 taps and one was out (the porter) so they lost point there. The beers themselves are all decent but unexciting, I get the feeling they are taming things down for newbies to craft beer. So it would be a great place to take someone to show them something different from macrobrews.

It is just a box but the only place you can always get at least 3 or 4 Brimmer beers on tap. not a huge tap list but all the guys produce so all we can ask for, really. Not sure if they have bottles to sell. Shame if they havenít as they would lose the take away market right there. They do though serve take away cardboard growlers, about 1L in size. On occasion, Scott Brimmer (head brewer) works behind the bar and then itís worth it just to chat to him. Very knowledgeable guy and super friendly. Beer is 500yen and served in tall glasses that Iím guessing are between 300-400ml. They occasionally have a small BBQ cart parked inside serving pulled pork and BBQ sandwiches which isnt bad but there is always the option of the cheap and delicious fried chicken in the box next door. Also space to stand outside plus you can go up to the 2nd floor (outside, roof of the box!) and sit down and watch the pretty people walking past. The area is a very classy section of Tokyo. Small walk from Omotesando station.

4 Brimmer beers on tap. Nice to sit outside in good weather and watch the people walk by. A cool place to hang and drink good, cheap beer.

Pros - Cheap as chips, even though serving size is now around 300ml. Lots of free samples. Attentive staff. Smells great and the BBQ food is fantastic. Cons - Itís a box. A small box. Only four beers on tap - one seasonal and three regulars.

Not much to say about this place. It is literally a box (part of an old shipping container) with one table, a shelf a long the wall and a stand that serves four draft Brimmer beers. Fits about 10 people max inside, but you can go outside and there are stairs to go on top of the box, which actually has decent views. Prices are about the best in Tokyo, 500 yen for 500 ml plastic cup. Update - The bad news is beer is now served in glasses and is much smaller portion for the same price. The good news, the beer quality continues to improve and they now serve pulled pork sandwiches, which are delicious. Considering the beer is still a good deal, the overall rating needs to go up
