Nice enough venue serving a range of Japanese and international craft brews. Compared to other Tokyo venues I visited the prices were excellent during the extended week night happy hour. A good option if in the area.
I wasn’t convinced by this place but I guess it’s all about what you are looking for. If you want to drink mainly American beers with a whole bunch of Americans and be served by American expats whilst in Tokyo, then this is the bar to you, if you are looking for a more authenic Japanese craft beer experience I would look elsewhere
Came here after Craft Heads, was a bit underwhelmed. They do have lots of taps, split between imports and Japanese micros. Some more interesting than the others. Somehow I preferred the atmosphere in CH. On the other hand I was pretty pissed when I came in so maybe my perception wasn’t the best. Certainly worth checking out.
Trendy bar in Shibuya area, 5 minutes from the famous crossing. There is a big bar and plenty of tables and seats. Selection is fair and service is ok, it was a bit loud. Beers are the normal Tokyo price, so have your wallet ready. In my opinion, beers were served too fast (less than a minute) after ordering, not letting it pose and be in perfect serving condition.
Very easy to find as you can make the place out if you are standing in front of H&M. Often populated most nights of the week.
Range is pretty good, the menu gives a good level of information for the beers on tap.
So you can definitely track down a beer you will like. The set up is clean and professional. It’s been pretty busy most times I’ve been and have had minimal conversation with the staff so cant really comment on their knowledge, but the menu and selection speaks for itself.
It is a good safe bet.
We visited this beer bar on 27.2.2015. It is located in a very popular district with many bars and restaurants. Decorated with brewery memorabilia mainly signboards from US micros and rare beer bottles. The bar is very professional with the original brewery tap covers. Was very crowded when we came on a Friday night, half Westerners half Japanese guests. Service was extremely polite. Great ale selection - 40 draft beers on tap - 1 hand pump - half of them are from Japanese micros. In addition a real great selection of global beers: Green Flash, Stone and even PIZZA PORT!!!! Fantastic smoked porter on hand pump - NIDE beer - GBF Smoke Pump Stout (BAIRD), was an absolute highlight. Also some good bottles available, we had a Schlenkerla Märzen. In the menu the available beers are structured by styles (lager, IPA,..) and the brewery symbols + locations are displayed, also very professional. Very very very good place !!!
I guess for Tokyo this is a good beer bar. Stopped by during a business trip. The menu is organized by the beer. They do have an English speaker on staff (Erin from Michigan) but don’t expect any of them to be a lot of help for a beer geek.
The beers are incredibly expensive -￥850 for half a pint!! But I guess that goes for Tokyo.
They had food but I didn’t bother. As for ambiance, they’re typical Japanese - good polite service, etc. It’s alright if you’re looking for some craft beer but not terribly interesting.
