Nice wood interior like Baird’s other Taprooms. Was pretty dead when I went in, so maybe I can’t judge well. Selection decent, though somehow not quite as good as Nakameguro. Seems very competent, though.
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.
I went here 2-3 years ago when it was fairly new. Smack in the middle of Harajuku there was a small taproom with good Baird Beers & decent prices. At that time the service was ok but diｄn’t wow me or anything-average. The selection was the normal range of Baird but I don’t think they had 17 taps then more like 5-8. I guess I’ll have to check it out again sometime.
Really nice place. Decor is all wood with a few tables and lots of bench seating. Atmosphere was good when it was busy and also when it was quieter. Service was great and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Food great too, and plenty of stuff for veggies. They had 15 kegs and 2 cask going when we visited, naturally all Baird. If you are going to have a few ask for the nonbei card and you will get 12 for the price of 10. We spent a fortune here, but the prices are not excessively higher than other places. Just couldn’t stop eating and drinking. Will definitely be going back.
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.

Was there for pre-opening night, so need to come back on a regular night to get a better feel and will change rating at that time. In comparison with the Nakameguro Taproom, it is cozier, darker and more comfortable with not as many taps. The focus here is also on Yakitori (skewered meat) and on traditional Japanese food. No Western food is available as far as I know. 15 taps and two handpumps. From Harajuku station, take the Takeshita Dori exit. Walk down Takeshita Dori and hang the first left past MacDonalds. Walk down the street to the very end and it is on the right side of the street on the 2nd floor. Update: Went back, but didn’t try the food. What I didn’t realize the first time is the acoustics are really bad. Even when only half full it is really loud and you can hear conversations across the room
Small cosy pub located in a backstreet of the young, popular and trendy Harajuku area. Serves most of Baird brews even though selection can be a little shorter than Naka-Meguro. Menu is focused on izakaya-style food with popular skewers, rice bowls and other tasty Japanese snacks. A nice option when in the Shibuya area, and one of the rare places opened for lunch on weekends.
Rather pleasant little bar, friendly staff, huge range of exclusively (I think) Baird beers, tasty bar snacks. I’d come back. I’d have given the selection higher marks but on the evidence of today’s selection you kind of need to like pale ales and not too distant cousins.
Nice intimate place at the end of an alley, just 5 min from Harajuku station. Nombei card gets you 12 pints for the price of ten, so good if you are a local or with a group. Good selection of excellent Baird beer. Food menu is limited but what we had was pretty tasty.
Solid little Izakaya like place. Easy to find just to the left of the main street in Harajuku when you get off the train. No guest taps. Lots of wood, like the Naka meguro location, but not as caverous and therefore more intimate. Good stop if you wanna check out the crazy that is Harajuku.
