Kiuchi Brewery

Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale

9.3

Hitachino produce one of my fave beers. This particular one is quite exotic, since it’s made with red rice. It’s like an IPA, but cleaner. Displays hints of fruits, but besides barley and the red rice (hence the red presentation in the glass), no flavors are added. Wifey doesn’t drink beer, so I get to slurp these by myself 🐶 — a month ago

I like this. Good combination of the sweet nigori and the drier filtered sake — best of both worlds! — 11 days ago

Small Batch Natural Color Japanese Whisky

Bought this for a good friend of mine. He was kind enough to pay it forward and share some with me. Served in a Baccarat tumbler made it taste that much more delicious 🤪 — 7 days ago

The smokiness is subtle and the caramel brittle underlines it. It’s a great whisky. Japanese is the ish. — 5 days ago
