Stupidly followed Google Maps and ended up here instead of Awajicho where Lucís Ushi-Tora beer event was. Luckily it all worked out in the end and was only a 10 minute walk away.
Decent sized bar with some long tables. Got here maybe 30-40 minutes after opening and seems most empty seats had reservations but was able to get a seat with a good amount of time before the reservation. Solid tap list with a few beers I hadnít seen or rarely seen.
Didnít try the food other than the complimentary mini plate with a squid ring and some veggies.
First bar Iíve encountered a cover charge but not terrible at 300 yen. Worth a look but Iíd recommend a reservation or arriving around opening hours.

A lot like the place in Toranomon. Was packed when I was there, but they still managed to find some room for us. Good selection of beer, nice service.

Food is the same as the Toranomon location - get the kebab sausage, totally amazing. Same type of list as Toranomon, but clearly they rotate beers in both places separately. I was really surprised with Romanchiku Godfather Barely Wine I had here, very rare. In any case, what is significantly different between here and the original is the pace of things. Very laid back, with very little standing room. Much more subdued and we did complain about the service....they brought out the food too quickly. Of course, everyone agreed that was much better than the opposite. Overall, if you just want a place to kick back and enjoy yourself without having other people talk in your ear, this place is clearly better than Toranomon.

Went on a Wednesday lunchtime and it was quite a pleasant experience. Decent enough range, so shouldnít be too difficult to find something decent. Prices are very good, 780 for all pints is not to be sniffed at for Tokyo. I have heard there is normally a cover charge but this is nothing that you couldnít make up for if you were having a few. They didnít charge me the cover charge, maybe because it was quiet and I wasnít eating, which makes a nice change as normally places are fairly inflexible.
Quite liked the atmosphere, fairly relaxed, with unobtrusive background music, but I did arrive only about 50 mins before they closed so it was thinning out a bit. Canít have any complaints about the staff, they were helpful enough and the service was good, but once again, I should stress it was a quiet lunchtime. Also nice that they do open at lunch as most places in Tokyo donít seem to open till 5. I will be back here again on my days off and will give it a go in the evening too.

Almost carbon copy or the toranomon craft beer market. aimed rpredominantly at aslarymen and their cohorts. open weekdays, closed weekends. Cheapest pints in town at regular prices. 680 or 740 a pint. Japanese craft on tap. prices seem to be averaged out between them and the 1 or 2 domestic beers. Good idea. Menu split into style sections (stouts, IPAs, fruit beers, etc) Another nice idea to make things easier for customers to understand the beers. Beer quality ok but not bang on. Had some weird ones both here and at toranomon. Shame as the system is a good one. Horie san put it in, as he has for most of the new bars in Japan now. Gotta wonder about the beer managers. Service good bt slow. Be prepared to wait ages to be served and also to pay the bill. Crazy. Mistkes been made wiht orders too. My friend having to order three times to get the beer he wanted. Staf need to know more about the beers. most customers there havent a clue and are the basic mainstream beer dirnkers but itís good this place caters to them and hopefully educates a few people bout craft beer in the process. They basically want Japanese in there to drink quick and order food then leave. Foreigners welcomed but still feel like we get in teh way at tiems. They are doing gfreat, now this is the 2nd store and I hear thye might open more. Great, simple marketing strategy. close weekends. open in a salaryman area, good prices, sell beer and then sell food as the Japanese like to eat when they drink. The craft beer market used to be very smoky but now they are no smoking with a tiny smoking section in the corner. Recommend either of these places as a cheap introduction into Japanese craft and especially if you like to drink around Japanese salarymen and women. This jimbocho one specializes in rotisserie chicken.
