Large taproom with lots of space and lots of wood. Great service but limited taps withe Baird and a few guests. A bit far out, but we had fun.

Paid a quick visit with Jonno. Pleasant space with wooden bar and tables. All the Baird range on taps plus seasonals. A guest tap as well. Nice enough for a quiet drink.

Nice place with nice atmosphere. Went early on a Friday evening and managed to get a table, but it did get quite busy. The bar service thing is a little strange. No-one seemed to know exactly what to do. We did get a tab though, so we didnít have to pay every time. Food was basically good, but not as interesting as Harajuku, where it was a little more Japanese Izakaya style. Was more burgers and pizzas here. I didnít get the bad atmosphere thing people had mentioned. Sure it is quite open, but it felt nice to me.

Timing didnít really work very well as I had to visit bang on the 2pm opening time. But great place to get into some Baird beers.

As others have said, you go here for the beer. Best selection of Baird in Tokyo, which means a lot of fine choices, and with the drink card it works out to 750/pint, much better than the usual 1,000 in the rest of Tokyo. However, there is room for improvement regarding the service. The food selection is fair, but small plates leave you hungry. Better to get dinner elsewhere.

A nice place in this land where one has to do some searching to find quality beer. But itís out there! I watched World Baseball Classic on TV. Ichiro. Try the beer Ice Cream. I thought the Shimagumi stout Ice Cream was out of this world. Dry and light, caramel and butter sweeetness.

Go here a lot as itís on my way into town. Lots of beer choices, all Baird. Beer quality is very good, but serving quality is another matter. Itís gotten better, but you still get a pint or two that has been topped up from a pitcher of beer that has been standing for lord know how long. Even if itís fresh, you donít pour an already poured pitcher into a pint glass and expect someone to pay full price for it or even want to drink it. Head sizes vary according to who serves you. They are lgetting better but itís till not perfect. On the whole staff here are friendly, if a little hesitant or shy. Nice bar but the decor and feeling is more akin to some kind of diner than a pub. Evyone is exposed. No cubby holes or places to hide with your beer. Very group freindly yet not easy to meet new people here, due to the layout of the tables. Reccomend getting the nonbei card (12 pints for the price of 10). Tasters are way too expensive. A definite bar to try, especially if you canít make it down to Numazu.

Beers from Baird brewery on tap is the only reason to come to this place. Beers are quite expensive, even their sampler. The brews I tried were OK, but nothing great. Food is made with beer as an ingredient, which is usually a plus, but this was also pretty ordinary stuff. Interior is all light pinewood and brass. Itís not a pub - itís a taproom. The room is very open so youíre on display whereever you take a seat. Atmosphere is tense and uncomfortable. I had maybe expected a bit of enthusiasm from the staff, this place being so devoted to a single brewery, but that seems to have gotten lost somewhere along the way. Staff is blatantly uninterested and provide no guidance upon choosing beers, a passive aggressive attitude from the staff when hesitating during my first order. Surprisingly unwelcoming, given the hard to find location. If I ever I get back to Tokyo, Iím not going back to this place.
