Limited edition of the Yebisu beer in Japan : the Robuchon series !
Not only some marketing rubbish, quite a good beer !
Took me a while to realise that this sign read Kirin Beer !
I pity the fools who look down at Japanese beers and won’t give it a try ! To the others, Cheers and have a nice weekend :-)
おつかれさま！Wishing you a nice weekend, cheers :-)
Cheers from Hokkaido!
And one Guinness for Friday’s lunch here in Dublin. “Guinness is good for you” they used to say. In England, post-operative patients used to be given Guinness, as were blood donors, based on the belief that it was high in iron. Pregnant women and nursing mothers were at one stage advised to drink Guinness – ...
Christmas edition of the Affligen beer, yummy! Served at Léon, our usual food stop for shopping. Unlike in Japan, I can enjoy a beer and drive :-)
Suntory’s new all malt beer, made from freshly picked ingredients (or so it reads) !
Suntory All-Free : no alcohol, no calories. Blatant demonstration that beer needs both to be good! This should not be sold together with beer ;-)
Another day off in Japan this week – Cheers ! :D

TGIT (thank god it’s Thursday): last evening session of the week, time for celebration!
Tomato beer with a hint of pepper. Not bad, not bad at all!
Chocolat brewery is made from roasted malt and cacao, having the characteristic of aromatic chocolate flavour and bitter taste. Quite close to a Guinness if you ask me!
The Sapporo Beer Museum (サッポロビール博物館) is a museum located in the Sapporo Garden Park in Higashi-ku, Sapporo, Hokkaidō, Japan. Registered as one of the Hokkaidō Heritage sites in 2004, the museum is the only beer museum in Japan. The red-brick building was erected originally as a factory of the Sapporo Sugar Company in 1890, and ...
After the blue and red beer, comes the green one. Better than the red, not sure about the blue anymore… need to refresh my memory ;-)
After the blue beer, I now give you the red one ! Taste-wise, the blue one was better. There’s something a bit too much flowery in that one…
Only sold in Hokkaido ! おいしかったです
A guy I don’t really like for a product I dislike. Good match. PS: so as to clear any possible ambiguity, this is NOT beer.
