Great shop that I could and did spend too much time and money in. Although the local stuff is underrepresented, they have a stellar import selection to rival many American bottle shops. Prices were reasonable and service was only limited by language. A must.

Nice place, large selection from around the world, in addition to interesting local stuff. Glassware too. A bit pricey, but worth a look.

The main beer geek shop in Tokyo. They focus on importing the best of international craft beers, rare items and glassware.
Even though, they mostly seem to focus on major crafts such as Stone, Mikkeller, Brewdog and Belgian abbaye brews, they also have some other geeky breweries as well as some rare large bottles in limited quantity.
Their Japanese selection is surprisingly poor and badly presented in a corner though.
Prices are steep but not shocking for Tokyo, and that’s the price for finding your favorite wishlist items.

Great bottle shop, carrying some really good beers, some of which are pretty hard to find by any standards, let alone in Japan.
Downside is the terrible selection of Japanese craft beer. Having had some awesome beers in Japan, there’s no excuse.
Certainly worth a trip if you live in Japan and want to stock up your cellar.

Best liquor store for beer in Japan, though a little lacking in Japanese micros. Staff is pretty good, but can feel a bit cold even if they’re not. Gave me a discount once when my total added up to 11,111.

A great bottle shop with a very impressive bottle list. The staff was amazing as they even bubble wrapped each of my bottles so I could secure it in my luggage. My only critique would be to carry more Japanese beer. Massive liquor selection as well!!

I really like this place, one of my favorite places to visit. Could spend 3 or 4 hundred dollars here easily. Check it out

A beautiful liquor store found downstairs that has a warm, cellar feel. A great beer selection no doubt, mostly from fan favourite breweries stateside and Europe. Not many Japanese beers in store, though I did pick up a few canned micros to quench the thirst with all that walking around the city. Quality beers here, not to mention all the other booze. Nice glassware selection as well, but pricey.

What an amazing place. Loads of choice and a good variety from all over the world. Glassware too. Prices are pretty good for Japan. I could have spent a lot of money here, and intend to over the course of the next few years. Like people have said, the selection of Japanese micros is a little small, but there is still plenty to choose from. And yes, the store looks lovely too. Very pleased to have somewhere like this not too far from my place.

This place is crazy. I could easily have spent $1000 here. They have an amazing collection of US beers I can’t even find in Canada...
The beer ’fridge’ is a work of art, all wooden. Japanese beer selection was a little weak, but they had some good ones like Isseki Nicho and a few Baird seasonals.
Lots of rare Brewdog, Mikkeller, and Nogne O. Expensive, but about what it would cost me in Canada. If you’re in Tokyo and love alcohol of any kind it’s worth a visit or two!
