Japan: Sake museum and craft beer at Sekinoichi
Until I get to Japan, I visit Japanese sake breweries virtually. I really enjoyed this post from Beer in Japan, a blog that covers the artisan and craft brew scene in Japan. In this lengthy post, Hopjuice writes about his visit to Sekinoichi Brewery in the Iwate prefecture that produces both beer and sake. (Above is a picture from the sake museum). The Passion Ale (made with passion fruit) sounds very interesting--curious what food (a fruit salad? grilled shrimp? it might work with. When I get to Tokyo, I'm going to consult Beer in Japan's Tokyo Beer map!
