I use this place to get most of my daily drinking beers as itís relatively well priced and along the way to a craft beer bar in the area.
Ambiance is your basic American style grocery shop except with wine. The staff are surprisingly unfriendly for Japan. I assume itís because theyíre supposed to also speak English and feel uncomfortable when they meet foreigners who speak fluent Japanese. Still not an excuse for crappy service though.
Value-wise itís reasonable and the selection could be better but still respectable for a grocery store.
They also do deliveries which is a plus.

Popular expat food supermarket with a huge selection of wines and beers on the third floor.
Most beers are imports from popular Californian, British, German or Belgian breweries, but you can also find some rare imports from several minor countries.
As expected, Japanese selection is extremely thin.
Prices are high but actually pretty decent for a luxury supermarket and inline with the Tokyo average import market.

Good choice for a non beer store. Big supermarket that sells most items for everyday needs. The upper floor houses a nice alcohol section that has a lot of wine and quite a few resonably priced world and Japanese beers e.g. Rogue, Fullers, Schneider, etc., though not many micros, if I remember.
Not a bad place to buy booze.

This is purely an import beer store (over 200 varieties). Do not go here for micros, you will be gravely disappointed. Getting beyond that, this place has an amazing selection, but they stick with brands that you can commonly find at other import stores, though the selection here is the widest. Some rare stuff does show up time to time (once found a german hefe with two ratings that was great), but this is more of a place to go if you are looking for your favs (Dupont, Rogue, Gouden Carolus, Sam Smith, Weltenburg, etc). Though could be only place I know that always has about six Andechs avialble. Wine selection is insane (well over 1000 labels). Heavily marketed to expats so prices arenít cheap. Still, its central (10-15 min walk from Roppongi crossing toward Azabu Juban).
