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.

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.

My favorite place to drink Baird in Tokyo/Kanagawa. Prices are fair. The guest list is always interesting as is the seasonal list. The atmosphere is kind of cheesy but very spacious and relaxing. The staff are great. Friendly and helpful and the beers and food always seem to arrive in a timely fashion even when they are packed to the gills. Open for lunch and through the afternoons on weekends which is a huge plus. The pizzas are really good and fairly priced. Kid friendly as well in the afternoons. Just a great place to enjoy craft beer in Tokyo all around.

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.

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 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.
