Expensive, but not without reason. Many of these rare beers are hand carried imports. Service is outstanding and welcoming. Three Floyds available often. The only place I’ve ever seen Terrapin’s Wake N’ Bake outside the US state of Georgia. I can’t reiterate enough that the impossible-to-find stuff is here.
I really love this place and go there more than once a week while I’m in Tokyo.
Their beer selection is the best at this moment in Tokyo since the owner imports some of beer personally. You cannot find some of them out of this place.
Please don’t miss their burgers and pizza. Staff sometimes are not able to communicate in English fluently, but no worry: they are lovely enough to take your order and assist your request.
Nice little bourbon and craft beer bar tucked away in Shibuya. Nice selection of drafts with what seems to be an equal amount of Japanese and imports (U.S., Europe, etc.). Very nice bottle list with breweries including Three Floyds and Hair of the Dog. Bartenders are very nice and talkative despite the language barrier. Some of the small plates/starters are a bit small portioned but the food is solid.
I enjoyed this place a lot and was impressed by their selection of US craft beer. If you are hunting after some elusive bottles from Three Floyds they might have them in stock. The prices are a bit steep but it sounds like the owner imports much of the beer himself. The food was great just a little on the small side for serving size.
I really enjoy Craft Heads when I visit. The price for bottles can be a bit too expensive but it’s no bother to me as I usually opt for something on tap.
Basement bar on a little winding street in Shibuya, so no outside view to speak of inside, but it is decorated quited nicely. Has a very lived-in feel which is a necessary attribute if I am trying to relax. Very long bar with a few tables behind. I prefer the bar.
After Mugishutei, this is probably one of the coolest places to go out for beer in Japan. They have tons of rare American bottles available, a decent selection of Japanese & American craft beer on tap and prices for those are average for Tokyo. The rare bottles aren’t so badly priced when you figure this place gives you a chance to try Dark Lord from Three Floyds, Allagash, Founders, etc. which are usually unavailable in Japan or outside the brewery. The staff are knowlegeable, friendly & cool. The atmosphere is great but a bit too dark which made it tough to get good photos. They also have a bunch of beer goods like tshirts & glasses available. I heard the food is good and I will try it next time. All in all an excellent place and I will be sure to visit again whenever I am in Tokyo!
