This pilsner from Hakone Beer was part of a three pack we picked up on our trip to Japan last winter. Also included was a stout and red ale, which we have since drank, enjoyed and reviewed so look for those in the future. As the picture would indicate (notice the severe lack of snow EVERYWHERE), we only held on to this beer for a few months before tasting it over the summer. The can/bottle hybrid preserved the beers well, though we do think the pilsner may have been a bit better if we opened it sooner. But anyway, onto the beer. keep reading...

With that basic premise in mind, we turn it over to Dru. keep reading...

Yo-Ho Tokyo Black Porter was our travel companion on the 14 hour flight home from Japan, though it didn’t get the luxury of airplane food, a 2 square foot bathroom and a string of questionable movies. It had to ride in cargo. Had it not, we probably would have cracked the can open somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. But, due to pesky TSA rules, this Tokyo Black Porter made the journey back to New York in January and we managed to hold onto it until late summer when we finally sampled it. keep reading...
