    Beers of Japan...

    So this is what happens when you go on a three month cycle tour in Japan and make it a personal rule that if a place you have stopped is selling a beer you have not tried yet, you MUST buy that beer...

    Was pretty amazing...

    wow, nice!

    Many Sushi places here in Cali can get the Asahi Black, that is my favorite Asahi beer.

    I am kinda shocked you did not have any hitachino nest beer in that montage.

    Hitachino Nest is hard to find in Japan actually, I can buy it easily here in Sydney though....

    Easily the top three were Grand Kirin (clear winner) Echigo Red and tie between Ginga Kogen Pale and Kumano Kado Biru... Fujizakura Heights Rauch is AMAZING when the weather is snow like also...

    oh weird, I wonder if they focus on exporting more of their beer.

    I believe this is the case.
    We get them state-side via B United International, as I would imagine the Aussies do as well.
    Outside of their taproom, and a few local accounts, I think Japanese distribution is quite low.
