Love the atmosphere of the place, dark and cosy connoisseur whiskey/beer bar. Staff is quite friendly. Selection is just amazing and very geeky, the only place pretty much where you get the chance to taste so many rare bottles such as Three Floyds. Also some good selection of some unusual Japanese and Foreign drafts. Snack food is fine and goes well with the drinks. The only issue is that prices are very steep due to the premium selection, but that’s probably the right price for a very special night.

Just caught them before closing, so only time for an Oaked Arrogant Bastard. Seemed like a good selection. Will definitely go back.

A little bit hidden away, in a basement in an anonymous street. Quite small inside and quite dark. Good selection of beers on tap, counted ten Japanese and eight US beers. Also a list of bottled goodies. I quite liked the place.

As Jonno said some do "think the owner is an arrogant bastard". The selection of Hair of the Dog is worth the trip but everything else can be found elsewhere. For atmosphere Popeye is better and if ever in need of guidance, Ushi-Tora is a better bet.

I enjoyed this place a lot and was impressed by their selection of US craft beer. If you are hunting after some elusive bottles from Three Floyds they might have them in stock. The prices are a bit steep but it sounds like the owner imports much of the beer himself. The food was great just a little on the small side for serving size.

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 aren’t 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!

The bar is worth a visit, visited the bar itself 3 times, they have good beer and variety and friendly staff who speak OK English. Not only beer but also Japanese whiskey.

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.

For my money, the best bar in Japan. Best selection by far, nice relaxed ambiance, good food, and attentive staff. Only negatives for me are the high prices and out of the way location.

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 didn’t eat but the salt burger sounded interesting. A must while doing the rounds of Shibuya.
