Stopped by cos I heard they have 3 Floyds.(The only place I know of that does in Japan). The place is clean and upbeat. A lotta expats hanging around. Stopped by in the middle of Japan spring break and had two 200 ml pours for about 1400 yen. The prices are insane but well worth it if you’re looking for some of these really rare brews in Japan (Lost Abbey’s Cuvee de Tomme for 4400) Unfortunately for us expats that is the price we must pay.

This is more like a pub with some food than a restaurant with bar. Although it appearently wants to be American craft beer bar, visit here for Japanese micros is must too while in Tokyo. But some interesting US stuff on tap too (more on bottles, although the most interesting ones were sold out). Service was friendly.

We visited 1.3.2015. Nice beer bar with a good Whiskey selection. They have many quite rare US beers on tap, many beers from Pizza Port and Lost Abbey (bottle). Although they had some rarities, did not like the selection too much, as just a few craft beers from Japan an no IPA on the menu. We had a Sake beer, which was interesting.

I really enjoy Craft Heads when I visit. The price for bottles can be a bit too expensive but it’s no bother to me as I usually opt for something on tap. Basement bar on a little winding street in Shibuya, so no outside view to speak of inside, but it is decorated quited nicely. Has a very lived-in feel which is a necessary attribute if I am trying to relax. Very long bar with a few tables behind. I prefer the bar.

This is a great little bar with a medium sized but expertly chosen selection of foreign beers. The first thing I noticed once inside was the half dozen or so different bottles from Hair of the Dog Brewery from Portland, OR, where I live. Even in Portland, those are excellent beers. Friendly and helpful staff steered me toward a couple of fine Japanese beers on tap. I was not disappointed. This place is not so easy to find; you certainly won’t stumble across it while wandering. From the Shibuya train station, head north toward the huge yellow signs for Tower Records. From the main entrance, cross the street to the west and toward the TGI Fridays, and turn north just before it. Go north one block until the street curves, then north another block past Freak’s. The pub is a small almost unmarked storefront. Go down, and walk into a small pub with a lovely wooden bar and thick wooden tables. They had 11 foreign beers on tap, and 9 Japanese. They also had bottles from Hair of the Dog, Commons, Three Floyds, Bruery, Founders, Alesmith, Lost Abbey, and Stone. Japanese beers were about 1000 yen each. Foreign were pricey at 1200 to more than 2000 yen for a glass or bottle. 750 ml of the foreign beers could be 4500 yen. I suppose importing is expensive. Since I can get the American beers back home, I stuck with the Japanese beers and wasn’t disappointed. Bottles are refrigerated, and can be opened at the bar or carried out.

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.

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.

Found some American beers here that I hadn’t tried in the States. But I mainly stuck to the Japanese stuff, interesting selection.

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.
