Ep. 54 | Japan Craft Beer Edition| Live from Yokohama, Japan
Kanpai! We’re heading across the Pacific to Japan for our first ever episode of the Pubcast in Asia. While Japan’s craft beer scene may be young, their brewing heritage is not thanks to a centuries-old history of Japanese lagers, as well as flavors and ingredients unique to the Land of the Rising Sun. In this episode, we travel south of Tokyo to Yokohama to meet up with Masa Kaji, Beer Judge & Owner of BrewPUB PANGAEA, as well as a few other Japanese beer judges. After attending a Sapporo pouring demonstration hosted by Japanese “Tap Star” Yutaka Shigetomi, Masa and his fellow judges sat down with us to discuss what characterizes craft beer in Japan, while providing a detailed overview of the best breweries across the country.
