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.

I have been here once and still not sure what to make of it. For starters, the place is located in a business mall district (which is probably great for business but deducts massive points for atmosphere). The place is brand new so it really doesnít have that broken in feeling. Thereís no blood on the walls yet. The beer selection is...well, itís all Baird beer so if you like Baird beer, then you should go here. But I preferred the small town joint feeling of the Numazu Taproom.

Good place to try Baird beer. not my favourite Ji Biiru as I tend to think they spread themselves too thin but good beer none the less. The place is well decked out. Nice place. I agree that the place could have been set out better as its just one open room. Otherwise good for a few. UPDATE. Service can be downright rude here - and often choices are left on the board even when they are finished. Seems odd - the other taprooms are excellent for service and availability. Also my comment about Baird should be taken with a grain of salt, the quality (particularly the seasonals) has improved a lot over the past few years.

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.

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

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.
