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.

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 ’wow’ 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 ain’t bad considering you don’t have to queue for 4 hours to get it! Re-rate October 2014. Took my Japanese father-in-law to impress him and it was a bit disappointing. Many of the bottled rare beers were sold out, and some were seriously overpriced. Cuvée de Tomme 4400 yen when it’s half the price in London. Service was also surly. When I went the the bar the girl just pointed with her finger to the end of the bar and didn’t say anything. Rude in any country, but shocked my Japanese guests. Won’t bother coming back. The scene in Japan has moved on and it just doesn’t make sense that places like Devilcraft and Good Beer Faucets lag behind this place.

Awed by the selection that they have here. Good food, had the salt burger. If I had found this place earlier I would have spent a lot more time and money here. Going back here next time I am in Japan.
