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 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.

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 didn’t have any trouble getting a table. Very friendly staff and happily put up with my bad Japanese.

Pretty easy to find really. Basement - reasonably nice fit out. Good selection on tap - 800 yen for a decent size glass of Stone RIS. Lots of bourobn. There are those you think the owner is an arrogant bastard and those that say otherwise. I swing between the two. Three floyds. Staff were very nice. A lot of the good bottles in the fridge are not for sale.

Great atmosphere and very good selection of rare microbrews. A bit expensive, but understandable given the selection. I live in Japan and know the scene well, so my experience is vast with the craft beer scene. The food is good and well thought out. Ok now my rant… I will pay the price for the beer that they import but the glass size IS NOT A PINT and the pours ARE NOT CORRECT. Again, charge me for the import but make it a pint and teach the staff to NOT PUT A HEAD on ale. Come on guys…

Thanks to Time for taking me here as i’d never would have found it otherwise. Place is relaxed with some nice atmospheric music in the background. The owner of the place is a true beergeek and speaks fluent english. Several taps with hard to find american and japanese beers. We counted 3 taps from 3 Floyds while we were here including Dreadnaught! Prices are a bit steep but the selection makes the visit here worthwhile. I will be back here asap! A true gem in Tokyo!
