A selection of beer we came across and brought back from the land of the rising sun. These brews come from several prefectures of Japan, Belgium and Denmark. We actually had to buy another suitcase and check our bags to get these beers home with us. We look forward to giving them a try and will put reviews up for each as well. We were surprised by the variety of Japanese beers available and how they seem to really brew each style with structure and balance. The breweries of Japan have a much to be proud of. The beer bars and beer shops also were amazing (reviews on those to come as well) and carried a wide range of local and global offerings. We look forward to tasting and reviewing these beers too. What has made it into you collection recently? keep reading...
