If Hiromatsu (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/14442) doesn't stock what you're looking for in Fukuoka-ken, chances are you'll be able to find it at Hiroshima, which has an equally impressive and surprisingly different selection. While there are almost no Japanese beers and only a few North American beers at Hiroshima, Belgium, Germany, and England are all extremely well represented. They also have an entire wall of official brewery glassware and some random breweriana such as signage, posters, bottle openers, and bar towels for sale.

Service is serviceable, but not bad because it's Japanese. I like Hiroshima for their out-of-the-ordinary selection, featuring obscure Belgians and German wheat beers, along with not-so-obscure but very impressive rarities like DeuS! After Hiromatsu, this is Fukuoka prefecture's second-best beer store (which also makes it Kyushu's second-best beer store, and the best beer store in Fukuoka City). Though it's easy to get to (directly outside Befu Station on the subway), I think you can also order things through their website, but I haven't tried it.

Also: Call ahead before you go because their hours are erratic!
