Found some American beers here that I hadnít tried in the States. But I mainly stuck to the Japanese stuff, interesting selection.

Popped into Craft Heads on a relaxed and quiet Sunday evening. Warm decor, dimmed lights, high stools along the bar. Heavy focus on US micros but there is local on tap too. Large fridge once again filled with US beers. Expect to pay big for the more obscure bottles. Staff were fine. I didnít eat but the salt burger sounded interesting. A must while doing the rounds of Shibuya.

Nice new bar with great beers available. A bit pricy, but top conditioned beers, many of which you wonít find anywhere else. Servers seem to know their stuff, and the owner was very knowledgeable and friendly. Have to go back for more. They have DL in the bottle!

Very nice underground bar. Modern and trendy with a huge bar. Self serve water, which in love. Impressive selection including 3 Floyds. Owner is an English speaking beer geek and staff are reasonably helpful. Prices are a bit step though. A really good stop.

Opened in Sept 2009. Lovely layout with a fair amount of space (for Japan). Selection of beer is probably the best in Tokyo in terms of quality, not quantity. As it says on itís website "I donít see any crap on tap, do you?" Very well thought out selection, served at good temps and in very good condition. A lot of thought has gone into the beer. Micheal, the owner, also goes to the US and brings back beer. That means Dark Lord and some other very rare US stuff is available very frequently in bottles (he has had DL on tap at Sals once as well!). The draft list leans to US stuff, but there are always a couple Japanese stuff on tap too. Moreover, the tap list always has fairly rare stuff, ie. last visit I had Brother Levonian, Ivan The Terrible and Shonan Imp Stout. Staff speak English, so that is useful. The selection of US beers would make many bars in the US jealous. In addition to this he has over 300 bourbons. The downside is 1) a bit tricky to find (call if you get lost) 2) No pints (only 200 or 350ml - though that encourages sampling) 3) Prices are around the most expensive in Tokyo 4) Food portions are small, though very tasty. Sals did much better for food I thought on price and volume. This is a beer geeks bar and not a place to bring people who arenít into beer or bourbon. If you are visiting from out of town, despite the heavy US selection, I would say this is a must stop. Guarantee to be something you have never tried.

Nice looking place, with a mix of foreigners and locals. Had a really good selection of Japanese micros and American imports on tap. As usual for Tokyo, prices are a bit high, but not really much higher than anywhere else. Visited on a Friday night fairly late and didnít have any trouble getting a table. Very friendly staff and happily put up with my bad Japanese.

After Mugishutei, this is probably one of the coolest places to go out for beer in Japan. They have tons of rare American bottles available, a decent selection of Japanese & American craft beer on tap and prices for those are average for Tokyo. The rare bottles arenít so badly priced when you figure this place gives you a chance to try Dark Lord from Three Floyds, Allagash, Founders, etc. which are usually unavailable in Japan or outside the brewery. The staff are knowlegeable, friendly & cool. The atmosphere is great but a bit too dark which made it tough to get good photos. They also have a bunch of beer goods like tshirts & glasses available. I heard the food is good and I will try it next time. All in all an excellent place and I will be sure to visit again whenever I am in Tokyo!

A nice selection of american beers with some hard to find rarities. Japanese craft on tap as well as american. A bit pricey, but to be expected from the line up. Staff speaks English well enough for it to not be a problem.

Ground floor bar in Shibuya with a stunning selection of craft beers, although weirdly it was clearly set up as a bourbon bar, judging by the insane number of bourbon whiskeys behind the bar. The layout of the bar is excellent with a row of seats along the counter and tables for larger groups. The íwowí factor here is that as well as a good array of Japanese micros on tap, they also have some American beers like Dark Lord, Speedway Stout etc, which you will rarely ever see in a bar. The downside is that the prices are high, even for Japan and the serving measures come with an inch or two of foam. Still a great place for beer lovers though and I still think £45 for Dark Lord ainít bad considering you donít have to queue for 4 hours to get it!

Nice little bourbon and craft beer bar tucked away in Shibuya. Nice selection of drafts with what seems to be an equal amount of Japanese and imports (U.S., Europe, etc.). Very nice bottle list with breweries including Three Floyds and Hair of the Dog. Bartenders are very nice and talkative despite the language barrier. Some of the small plates/starters are a bit small portioned but the food is solid.
