    We are doing a special tasting session in Melbourne and Sydney on Japan's craft beers and want to do a live interview with an English-speaking authority on the craft beer scene in Japan.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of who this could be? It could a beer writer/journalist or highly regarded brewer for instance.

    Baird Brewing in Japan is run by a white guy (American?) who definitely speaks English. You can email them at info@bairdbeer.com

    Chris Poel (Lead Brewer) or Bryan Baird (Master Brewer/Owner) at Baird Beer.

    Also, Ry Beville, publisher of the Japan Beer Times (info@japanbeertimes.com)
