Hitachino is a ripping little Japanese brewery that certainly has quite a following. While the name, Japanese Classic Ale conjures up thoughts of some quirky concotion, to my mind, this is very much an English inspired IPA. Rich caramel & toffee malt, floral hop aroma & robust earthy, spicy hop bitterness. Somewhat typical of hitachino beers, this one has a twist, being that it is aged in cedar casks that previously housed shochu (distilled sake). A great little number that you will love!

Filling as we speak. If you don’t already have a growler, bottles are $15 each, while a fill of Hitachino Nest Japanese Classic Ale is $35.00
