Toranomon has the best food of the Craft Beer Markets in my opinion. Really good food and fair to cheap prices even. The beer selection could be better and is usually not as good as Jimbocho or Koenji but still the prices are unbeatable.
Small modern trendy craft beer bar in a side street close to Toranomon Metro Station. Smoke free. 30 beers on tap including BrewDog Punk. Quiet at lunchtime. Expensive with very annoying 300 yen cover charge which includes dried white bread & pâté. Satisfactory English speaking service. Reasonable place but would be much better if they dropped the cover charge.

Great place which is kind of packed with people trying to get some food and beer.
Has a very japanese pubfeeling to it which is a plus.
Beerlist is solid with alot of good japanese craftbeer in good condition. Food is excellent and well worth a try.
Prices are very fair!
Will definitely be back here when i’m in the area.
Nice high ceiling beer hall style bar. Very friendly service, but little English. Large selection of taps, although they run out quickly so you could have 1/3 gone by the time you arrive. Very busy local hangout because the prices are pretty much the best in town. A must if you can get there early.
Atmosphere of an open-space salaryman standing bar. Service is ok but the place is just constantly packed. Draft selection is wide but quite uneven in terms of quality. The flat and record low price tag is the best argument of the place, you can enjoy a few decent locals and imports on your way to a big night or dinner. Would probably not go very often though as it is so popular that they now ask to make reservation, which I’ve never heard before at a standing bar...
Very much like the jimbocho premises but a bit smaller. There was not the huge amounts of salary men there as I was expecting, but apparently this may have been because it was the day before payday. Definitely worth bearing in mind for next time. Staff were very nice and helpful. As usual the prices are near to unbeatable in Tokyo. Decent selection too. ¥300 cover charge which you can make up if you have a few pints. Will definitely be coming back and hope it is as nice next time. Could be not so nice if it is was crammed full.
Good selection, ok quality (should be better and more consistent). Service can be SLOOOOOW. occasional mistakes with order.
designed for salarymen who may not know craft beer. It works. Close weekends.
Good place for a cheap introduction to Japanese craft beer, being surrounded by Japanese salarymen and women.
I kinda liked that all beer are the same prices on tap, but that may just be from a visitors perspective. The venue is nice enough, warm lighting, not pretentious from an initial observation. Staff were responsive and efficient, though knowledge of beers were somewhat lacking. Thanks to Chuwy for directing the way.
