Japan Society says…

Thanks to Japanese craftsmanship, gourmet ingredients and attention to quality, Japan has experienced a craft beer revolution. According to a recent Slate exposé: “Beyond high-quality renderings of popular Belgian, German, and American styles, many breweries are experimenting with Japanese flavors, like ginger, yuzu, or even fist-sized Uramura oysters.” Following a discussion between pioneers Steve Hindy (Brooklyn Brewery) and Bryan Baird (Baird Beer), participants can sample 24 brews from 10 breweries, some specially crafted for the occasion.
