SWANLAKE KOSHIHIKARI RICE LAGER
ABV 5% | Rice Lager | 330ml
越乃米こしひかり仕込み 新潟, Niigata
Tasting Notes:Koshihikari rice harvested in Niigata is typically the most expensive rice in all of Japan. This brew brings the rice to the forefront by focusing on high-quality Koshihikari rice grains, with a very crisp citrus and floral taste. A recipient of multiple awards, at both domestic and international competitions.

ABV 5% | Herb Ale | 330ml
ハーブエール 岩手, Iwate
Beverage Notes:Locally harvested sansho peppercorns are infused into this ale, which makes for a herbaceous, prickly and peppery finish. Excellent food beer!
BAIRD RISING SUN PALE ALE
ABV 5.5% | Pale Ale | 330ml
ライジングサンペールエール 静岡, Shizuoka
Tasting Notes: This hoppy, brisk and refreshing Pale Ale is indescribably complex, but holds tenaciously to Japan's prime aesthetic value – balance.
It is a perfect beer for drinking now, later, tomorrow, the next day, every day.
Food Pairing Suggestion:Great on it's own.
MIYAZAKI HIDEJI KURI KURO DARK CHESTNUT ALE
* WORLD BEER AWARDS - WORLD'S BEST STOUT & PORTER (2017)

STRAFFE HENDRIK TRIPEL
* EUROPEAN BEER STAR - GOLD MEDAL * AUSTRALIAN INTERNATIONAL BREWING AWARDS - GOLD MEDAL
ABV 9% | Abbey Tripel | 330ml
Tasting Notes: Spicy aromatics of black pepper, coriander, ginger and tangerine. On the palate initiates a hint of caramel, developes into citrus fruitness with a hoppy finish.
Food Pairing Suggestion: The combination with zesty fish plates is a real treat, but Straffe Hendrik can also be paired with cheeses such as camembert.
Beverage Notes: Straffe Hendrik Tripel is a golden triple with a sturdy white collar.
IWATE KURA SMOKED ALE
ABV 5% | Smoked Ale | 330ml
いわて蔵ビール・スモークエール 岩手 Iwate
