Sometimes I feel I should stick to writing just about Japanese breweries. The problem is that I like beer no matter it’s country of origin. That is why I was pretty darn happy when I heard that yes, more West Coast U.S. brews are on their way to Japan. A refresher of Stone, Green Flash, and Speakeasy (possibly with a couple of their beers that weren’t here last time), along with Ballast Point and (hopefully, but I guess not 100% yet) Alesmith. I hope to be drinking some of this stuff in the next week or so- at the latest early April. My taste-buds await.
Oh, hope St. Paddy’s day finds you in good beer (not green beer). I think I’ll be hitting up my local Irish pub, The Morrigan’s, for a pint of Guinness; though I may head up to Yokohama and seek out a better stout. In any event, a cool, dark, malty beverage is in my future.
