We had so much fun (and only a slight hangover) making our previous issue about Japan’s many ways to get tipsy, so we keeping the momentum going by sampling Japanese craft beers.
Small brewpubs are popping up all around the country. Since there are so many new, exciting brews to sample, the usual order of toriaezu-nama (the first beer of the evening) seems like a waste! Whether you prefer a light IPA or a dark and wholesome
porter, Japan has something for you.
We’ve done the hard work of narrowing down the finest hops on tap at Tokyo’s best brewpubs. We also take an in-depth look at some of Japan’s strongest craft breweries as we visit Hitachino Nest, Yoho Brewing, Baird Beer and Minoh Beer.
And yes, there are many more amazing Japanese breweries. So go out and find your favourite spot! Plus, with Danish Mikkeler planning to bring its Mikkeler Beer Celebration extravaganza to Tokyo this September, the Japanese beer scene is poised to take it all one notch higher.
