Happy Hour with Rikumo: Hitachino Nest White Ale

Hitachino Nest White Ale with the Futagami Brass Bottle Opener in Crescent.

The Happy Hour with Rikumo series explores entertainment possibilities from a distinctly Japanese perspective. We've spent the last two installments tasting Japanese beers--catch up here, here and here.

If you’re a fan of Belgian beers or looking for a mild summer beverage, we recommend trying Hitachino Nest: White Ale. This light-bodied brew has a hazy golden hue and a rich wheat taste. Citrus, nutmeg and coriander notes round out the flavor.  

If you’re in the Philadelphia area and are having a hard time finding Japanese beer, try the Foodery.
