Not quite as thrilled this time around when compared to my first visit in 2011. Cosy comfortable modern bar with a very solid house list and sharper pricing when compared to some of high profile craft bars around town. Service friendly albeit one of the food orders was forgotten. Whilst we are talking food well executed but on the expensive side. Only 50m from the craziness of the Harajuku shopping streets.
Visited the 21st November 2017 - near to Harajuku main street this small place is beer need to see place if you are on this area. Great beer selection from direct from the brewery. Food is also excellent. A must see if you are on the area.
If you can find it, because the entrance is at the complete opposite from the main street, this taproom is quite nice.
They serve Baird's crafts mostly on about 15 taps. Food is quite good and the best value there to discover their beers is the tasting plan : 3 x 140ml samplers for 1000Y, which is affordable.
Sometimes they have guests beers on tap, or collabs. When i went there, they had a collab with Shiga Kogen
Dropped in here on a rainy Sunday night and it was the best place to be. Good food, warm smoke-free atmosphere, excellent service and of course lots of excellent Baird Beers. Worth making a detour for for sure.
Great place tucked in behind Takeshita Dori in Harajuku. Baird beer mostly on tap with a guest beer and a hand pump beer as well. Food is Japanese style yakitori with some other otsumami available as well. Service was fine when I was there, the beers are most of standard Baird beers but if you’re looking for Baird and in the area than this is a great option.
We visited this Baird tap room on 1st of March 2015. They have 15 taps with Baird beer, 1 guest beer (Green Tea IPA from Stones = very good!!!) and one hand pump. All beers very well tapped and great temperature. Nice bar, good atmosphere, friendly service and beers are quite good especially the IPA’s.
Waded through the crowds of teenagers on the main street in Harajuku to get here Sunday afternoon. Close to Harajuku Station and Yoyogi Park. Bar on the second floor of the building, a little confusing finding the stairs on a first visit. Weird snaky shaped bar that kind of reminded me of Argilla Brewing in Delaware.
Nice selelction of Baird’s regular beers on the main menu, all which I’d seen at Bashimichi the other night. Also a handful of seasonals that were different and their location exclusive beer on hand pump. A few guest beers too. 1000 yen sampler set with any 3 Baird beers in 140 ml glasses.
Food was good, mostly Japanese style food. Had the wasabi potato salad and assorted yakitori. Yakitori was good though included chicken livers and tsukune (chicken meatballs with bits of cartilage) so you might want to ask before ordering that if you’re not into off-parts.
Friendly service and not too busy on a Sunday afternoon. Self-serve water available near the bar. Worth a stop if in the area, especially if sightseeing Yoyogi Park or Meiji Jingu.
