I know it’s a little early to do this, but I thought I’d try to start something up before Will forgets everything he knows about Japanese beer. I think it’s worth having another discussion about this as my opinions have changed quite a bit and I imagine other people’s might have as well. So, what do you reckon, shall we have a vote again? I can take care of the admin if people want. If you are interested, let me know your favourite 10 Japanese breweries and I’ll sort out the chart for us all to digest in time for New Year.

Maybe I should try to resurrect the best bars in Kanto thing as well. That didn’t really take off, I guess because it’s a bit more region specific.

Oh! Hitachino gets the boot!
I liked the 2 BA beers I tried at Oedo, but nothing much else from them this year that I cared about.

To be honest Kyoto is lucky to be in my top 10 TBTH...not seeing a lot beyond the hype..edit solid but nothing has been beyond solid for mine.
