If you’ve been in any nice bottle store lately you’ve seen the shelves become heavy with West Coast U.S. brews. Marin, Green Flash, Alaskan, Hair of the Dog, Great Divide (though technically not west coast), Speakeasy, Avery, among others. To say I’m pleased would be an understatement. So you can only imagine my excitement when I learned that come early March Green Flash will be available on tap. Tap! I’ve only heard of Thrash Zone getting the beers, but I’m sure many others will be serving it, as well. Please patronize these beers as it will only show that there really is a market for quality beers from all over the globe (especially hoppy IPAs) in Japan. I know I’ll be having a few pints.
