  • About

    I live in Japan where Craft Beer is just getting a good foothold and is now kind of trendy, but too many Japanese people go into bars and restaurants and without even looking at the menu, simply order the only draft beer on tap, which is usually Asahi Super dry. I hope I can educate them into knowing what good beer is.

    I don't really like Largers, or light beers. For me the darker and more flavorful the better. However, most Belgian beers are beyond what I consider good beers. They are too fruity, and the taste is overpowering like eating a children's breakfast cereal. I am sure they are good at their craft, just as lager makers are, but I am not big fan of Czech beers, British Ales, or Belgian beers. I like mostly American Micro brews, and some Japanese ones as well.

    Other than that, just a blue collar service engineer working here and enjoying life. If you ever want to know good places to drink in Japan, send me a message.
