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.

I have been here about five times since it opened May 10th and the situation over the past six weeks has not changed. 17 Baird beers on tap, including 10 regular beers, 3 Nakameguro Handpumped Ale (these rotates, but always seem to be low ABV English style ales) and 4 seasonals. Selection is awesome. I like the simple bright, wooden interior and six tables with six seats each. The design is good, but I know many British that complain it is too bright. That is the positives. The main negatives are there is no system for delivering the beer after you order. If it is busy, the staff may just yell out who ordered the Pale Ale and see who reacts. It is total chaos, which means you may get your beer late or you may get two beers or it could be right on time. The beer pour is still not very good, with some staff give the beer a massive head. The food is overpriced and mediocre at best - I over heard other people talking about which beer bar they would visit for dinner and then come here after. Basic selec

Great place to sample many different Baird beers. Nice wood interior, great beer selection. A bit small. Lunch specials are good value and include a beer taster. Tasters are nice but over-priced for the size. Better to drink pints here! Beer is in top quality, and you can always count on there being a couple new Baird entries, as it is one of the most innovative breweries anywhere. Service much improved lately.

Relaxed atmosphere, and very brewpub-ish. More of a place to enjoy good food and drink than just a bar. 20 taps plus 4 hand pumps means there is always something interesting to be had. Barkeep was knowledgeable and friendly (also spoke English well). The regular lineup is always available plus all the seasonal. I could have stayed longer than the three hours I was there (and drank much more, too) but as it was I had many of their brews Iíd never had a chance to try. Beer menu has information on all the beers they serve so itís a nice place to take a newbie. Food was pretty tasty. Had a late lunch/early dinner here which fits the atmosphere perfectly. Iím not sure if it gets rowdy at night but it was a great place to grab a bite and a beer.

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.

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.

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.

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.
