Beer is one of the most consumed drinks all throughout the world. Though Japan is most known for its traditional alcoholic drink, sake, it also boasts of several beer brands that are quite popular in many countries. There are different kinds of beer in Japan, the lager being the most popular.
Under the category of lager beers, Japan’s number one bestseller is Asahi’s Super Dry. Other beers worth trying out are Sapporo’s Black Label and Ebisu, and Kirin’s Lager and Ichiban Shibori. Japan’s breweries also produce seasonal beers. These are generally lagers as well and are sold only for few months at a time.
Aside from the lagers, Japanese also patronize dark beers called stout. Happoshu, or low malt beer, is also popular. In fact, it is more popular than stout. This is perhaps due to the lower prices attached to them.
Wherever you go in Japan, it is not hard to find a place to sit down and have a cool drink. From beer to sake to whiskey, you will certainly find something to suit your taste.
