    My wife and I are headed to the Japanese Island of Okinawa for the next 3 years of our life. I have found one brewery on the island so far as well as a small amount of imports such as Anchor and Kona and a few Belgians.

    Does anyone know the US dollar price of beer in Okinawa?
    Does anyone have advice on buying/finding beer in Okinawa?
    Does anyone know of rules in Okinawa i.e. can I homebrew?

    Hey, I know this might be a longshot but have you been able to find any good craft beer in Okinawa. I'm here in Hansen for a couple of months. Believe me when I tell you that I am hurting for an IPA, or something other than Chimay and Sam Adams.
