A Japanese Beer Trilogy

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

Here’s a trilogy of videos on Japanese beer – one on beer vending machines in Kyoto, another one on a draft beer vending machine in Tokyo, and a final one on historical beers – beers with labels of famous people in Japanese history with short bios.

Later that same night I came across some “Historalicious” Japanese beer which were beer bottles with labels depicting famous people from Japanese history.

Crack open a cold one and enjoy the Japanese Beer Trilogy!
