Koshihikari Echigo Beer

Woah. New go to beer alert for that crisp rice style beer I encountered backpacking all over Southeast Asia in my early 20s.

Airy, light, crisp, slight pear afternote. None of the weird malty aftertaste you sometimes get with these. Love it for classic, simple style beer to go with sushi or fried chicken.

Sho Chiku Bai

Nigori Unfiltered Sake

Locally produced at Berkeley. Just a simple Nigori, though slightly sweeter than I’d prefer. $8 on happy hour though for a bottle? Ill take another. — 13 days ago

Aged 12 Years The Kurayoshi Malt Whisky

A real competitor to the yamazaki 12 and I consider the Yamazaki 12 the gold standard! a little sweeter on the profile but the flavor is incredible! A steal at current price point. — 19 days ago

Japanese Mizunara Oak Whisky

I would have thought this was Scotch without a doubt. Peaty, smoke and nice oak rounds it all out. — a month ago
