My friend Tomm Carroll has sampled the beer scene in Japan and I am jealous. But reading this book might bring me closer. More likely, closer than I will ever be to Japanese craft beer.
Craft Beer in Japan by Mark Meli details the breweries, the bars and the ji-biru. Along the way Meli has tasted over 1,700 and he has found out tid-bits of the beer culture in Japan as well. Making it more than just a quickie guidebook. Right now it appears to be only Kindle version but all the better for those on the road.
