Small but atmospheric place. Decent enough selection, very friendly staff. Worth a look.

Nice place where the people know and love beer and are very friendly. Great selection of taps, nice bottles too. A bit expensive compared to the local average. Very nice place, though, with imaginative menus. Looking forward to their own beer next year.

Simple box room layout with 4-5 tables and counter seating. About 17 taps, fairly well chosen, though nothing too mind blowing the night I was there. Prices are higher than average. Beer condition was good. Service was excellent - they never bothered us, even though we were finishing our beer after the bar closed and the staff was cleaning up. Knowledgeable staff. One surprising thing was the depth and well thought out bottle selection. Truly one of the best in the city. Price, especially for half pints was the only major flaw with this place

Popped in here for a beer, I thought the atmosphere was great, high ceilings simple wood/concrete/maybe fake bricks? look & the service was good. The selection was uninspiring for me, a few good things but I’d already had them and the big thing for me was the sticker shock most half-pints were 800-1000yen! 950 yen for a half-pint of Punk IPA??? If they’d had something I wanted I would have stayed but with those prices I left. My friend living in Tokyo said those prices are pretty average in Tokyo. Highest I ever saw though and I’ve been to most of Tokyo’s top 10 places...

Rather small place with a nice friendly atmosphere. Tap selection changes often and can be very good if you are lucky (which I was). Handles the beer nicely and very good service.

Nice place about a 10 minute walk from Shinjuku. Around 20 taps, 2 handpumps. Decent selection of Japanese micros and some imports (think there were a couple of US micros and a Brewdog). Next door to the bar will be a brewery when they get their license. Pint prices were about usual for Tokyo, round about 1000, maybe a touch more for the imports. Half pint prices were much more than half the pint price though which was a bit weird. Think my pint was 1100 and the half 850. Food looked nice but we didn’t sample this. Few bottles in the fridge including Cantillon but didn’t find out how much they were. Will go back as I liked the place, but will definitely stick to the pints.

Came here at the end of a day long session with Tim Maloney and Chewy. Arrived about 10.30pm and were warned they were closing up. Had enough time for a couple of pints though. Set up is nice with a glass front and a modern and urban style bar with lots of craft brew stickers and American brewing labels and paraphernalia all over the bar. Line up was decent with some good Japanese craft beers alongside American beers. Two I had were in good condition and staff were friendly, offering tastes of different beers. Would come back here again a little earlier to enjoy the ambiance.

Reminds me of Toronado in San Diego in some ways. Simple, with black boards for beers and lots of paraphernalia. They sat me in the corner and left me be. Good beer selection, although only a few really interesting beers. Another bar to add to the bustling Tokyo scene.

Happy to see another bar with a decent selection open up. Apparently the owner is a homebrewer and plans brew for the bar once the license comes through. About 5 min from Yoyogi station, on a major street so easy to find.

Small ground-floor craft bar nearby Sendagaya. Service is fine. Very good selection of some high quality local drafts and some nice international ones too. Pretty decent value, I’d recommend the 4-draft sampler set (can only order on weekdays before 6pm).
