Beers from Hokkaido

 I was given these two beers made by Brasserie recently. The regular IPA was very drinkable. I haven't tried the Double IPA yet!

Two more new beers

 There are two more limited beers out right now. The first is Suntory Premium Malts' Amber Ale. Sigh... Another one time only beer! And the other is the annual Kirin Aki Aji. I haven't tried the latter yet!

New beer

 From 7-11, Amber lager made by Sapporo Beer. It's not as sweet as Yebisu Kohaku but still not to my taste!

Spanish beer?

 I was given this bottle of spanish made german style beer the other day. It contains rice and corn starch so I'm not expecting too much from it!



Okinawa fair at Tobu Ikebukuro

 I was gasping for a beer yesterday afternoon but it was bucketing down due to a typhoon so I couldn't go for my usual pint in the park cafe. I was wandering around Tobu department store and found they were running an Okinawa food and crafts fair! Plenty of seats and standing tables so...

New Orion Beer

 Something new at my local My Basket! Orion Kolsch! Not terrible either!


Yokosuka Brewing

 I went to Yokosuka again but this time visited Yokosuka Brewing. The beers aren't bad and their regular beers are reasonably priced at 748 yen inc tax for a US pint! I had their Dobuita Happy pale ale and the more expensive limited Sarushima Beer session IPA.

Yorocco Beer

 I finally made it to the new Yorocco Beer Pub in Kamakura recently. It's a nice little place but lacking atmosphere. I had a large Helles, which I think was 1,200 yen and a small Vienna lager for 900 yen.

Tins of beer

 A few tins I bought recently. The Hen was disappointing, the Asahi was Asahi and the Sapporo was quite drinkable!

Something else I was given

 I think I've tried this maker before and it wasn't that good. I will try this soon!

New beer

 This is a new beer at My Basket store. I haven't tried it yet. Maybe this evening!

Yossy's Fish and Chips

 I had reason to visit this place in Mitaka on Tuesday. They only have Kirin Guinness, Heineken and Ohara's on tap. The O'hara's was OK but not up to craft beer standard. They also have a couple of Ohara's bottles.

Something I was given

 I was given this bottle of W-IPA some time ago but didn't get around to trying it until recently. I was pleasantly surprised. It was quite good!
