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!

Extremely tricky to find - I had nearly given up. Was pretty quiet for a Friday night, but it had a pretty chilled vibe - I liked the place and the music. You could spend some serious coin here though if you weren’t careful.

I have been here 3 times in one week. The best place I have been in Tokyo. Lots of good american and japanese micros. Ok size compaired to other japanese beer placed. Pretty expensive compared to the japanese marked, the same as in DK. I will be back in November !!

Expensive, but not without reason. Many of these rare beers are hand carried imports. Service is outstanding and welcoming. Three Floyds available often. The only place I’ve ever seen Terrapin’s Wake N’ Bake outside the US state of Georgia. I can’t reiterate enough that the impossible-to-find stuff is here.

Nice new bar with great beers available. A bit pricy, but top conditioned beers, many of which you won’t 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!

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 it’s website "I don’t 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 aren’t 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.
