Bring it on! I still prefer black label to be honest but Ebisu runs a very close second!

Sapporo Breweries sure have a lot of excess cash to waste having a development in Tokyo that brews beer!

Japanese beer sure is very tasty, filled with flavors and quite the experience to drink!

Sapporo black label is my go to beer. Yebisu is good but has a sweet after taste. Do you know about "Lucky Yebisu"? The normal one the little character on the logo is holding 1 fish. On a Lucky Yebisu, he is holding up 2 fish!

Premium Malts better. Japanese IPA's even better. But nice to see something good in the news.

I'll drink it.

The only Japanese beer I dislike (at the moment) is Asahi Super Dry.

Yebisu is the best Japanese beer and even some better when in glass bins and it probably is the only one that also could rival international beers, then followed by Sapporo, Suntory, Kirin. Asahi lovers sorry, but that one has a very thin tasting whatever beer near aroma , something like beer aromatic sparkling tap water, but if you like it for whatever unknown reason enjoy it as it’s still not the bottom, because then come all those new local or brand less phantasy brews called craft beer, hand crafted , self-brewed and such, of which one is more disgusting as the next or vice versa. Being from Germany I know a bit how beer has to be, therefore my advice, Yebisu / Sapporo, then if available imported beers from , yes, Germany of course, but there are still better ones, on the very top are the beers from Czech , also getting my recommendation, like Budějovický Budvar (btw that’s not the thin tasteless US copy but the real Budweiser beer from Budweis) and Staropramen. And that also meets with the historical developments, as modern beer stems from those small Czech cities and only after that it made its victory tour through southern Germany (Bavaria) and the whole world. Cheers everyone.

I agree wholeheartedly with your choices - German and Czech beer are far superior to most (including the UK where I’m from). I would also give a shout out to Belgium beers - they can be on the strong side but have loads of character.

Pilsner Urquell ! But do give Modelo Negra a try.

So many great tasty Japanese craft beers at great prices, no need to drink bland beer from Sapporo, Kirin, suntory and Asahi.

Go to any convenience store and all you see is a vast array of bland lager, scores of them. Much as with the only choice white bread, Japanese white rice, unimaginative sandwiches. There are literally hundreds of different beer styles but as with much else here, little choice.

Yebisu beer is my favorite Japanese beer! I love the beer, the museum and soon a brewery!
