I love buying boxes of 24.

 

:yummy:

 

Last one I got was the classic gold Ebisu. Very nice beer. Come to think of it, there's only about 6 or left, time to buy next box.

I thought I'd try a low calorie beer, as I hope to lose a few kg before my Summer Beer & Pies adventure.

Mmmm, it's really not nice.

Just about drinkable after a bath and very thirsty, but that's it.

Did you order the 100?

 

Looks like they have sold out!

 

No, but I did get another ten instore. I'd have bought more, but I'm guessing that the price might continue for a bit.

 

Note that the 1698 one is 6.5% while the others are 4.5%, so I got five each of them. I can notice that kind of difference and quite like drinking more before I start feeling :crazy: . I don't drink wine very often but I try to avoid 15% stuff for the same reason.

I have a dedicated beer section in my large fridge. There's always a selection of bottles and cans in there, up to 12 at any one time.

The mood decides which one is taken out!

 

:yummy:

Here's a beer question.

 

Want to take some back for my dad and brother in a few weeks and wondering what to take.

I'm thinking Yebisu.

 

What would you take?

This time take them something different! :doh: :slap:

 

I should have said, I took mine back for my family not yours.

Test me out... bring a few different beers back as a test run and I'll let you know what is good.

had a good drive today

 

Kusatsu > Shiga Kogen > Madarao

 

Not the best of weather really, hazy.

 

Got some Shiga Kogen beer and sipping on the Blonde one now. Very nice.

 

But seriously, ji-biiru is just too expensive. 2 small bottles fill my (quite) big jokki glass. 700 yen.

Absolutely!

 

Jibiiru is way too expensive. I would buy much more if it were cheaper. I don't know the cost of making the stuff, but I'm sure there's many more people like myself who would be more regular drinkers if it were more reasonably priced.

 

Yuzawa Kogen beer, I used to like that. Way too expensive and the restaurant was just silly prices. Not surprising they gave up.

 

I hope Hakkaisan continues because I like it. Still, only sometimes because I just feel I'm handing over too much cash when I buy it.

 

I do like the Shiga Kogen one too.

Wonder if it's just that it costs a fair bit to make the jibiiru, or whether they're just slapping on a ton of extra to the price?

The problem is the tax related to the ingredients that go into making it. There is almost a special licence that can be expensive.

I tried the 'with Japanese cuisine' one.

 

Hmmm. Was ok, nothing special.
