At the Japan International Beer Festival (Osaka) they had tons of micro brews, so were quite good, and some were shite. Can any of you guys add to the above list?

I agree! I know after making this that I left out quite a few, as Ezo said Orion from the Ryukyus, Otaru (Ive been to the brewery there), and soooo many others.


SJF, SJ#1, et al, any chance we could get a poll edit function?

Yonayona is amazing on tap, though I only ever found two places that did it on tap (old rock in matsumoto and some restaurant in karuizawa).


From a can, my favourite is Suntory Malts and to a lesser extent Premium Malts.

Just want to say that I think Asahi SuperShite is crap. Why is that the preferred drink at meetings/parties/etc here? Was *forced* to drink it last night, but my colleagues and I decided to go out after and wash it down with some Kilkenneys smile


Asahi is Japan's worst beer, IMO.

Yeah, Asahi is for people who don't care what their beer tastes like, or don't particularly want to taste it at all.

Of the major labels, Kirin lager is probably my staple but actually in the summer, I drink hops sometimes. The Kirin green label one's actually not so bad. But for quality, ginga kogen is one of my favourite summer beers. But if I was stuck on a desert island and had only one kind of beer on tap for the rest of my life I'd want a good Indian Pale Ale. I can't find many decent affordable ales in Japan.

Ger, the white can? Thats brilliant, very similar to Hoegaarden, isnt it?


My staple beers are Hooegarden, Duvel, Ebisu (including the dark), and Ichiban.
