Japanese craft beer has made modest inroads into the beer scene in the United States. If you visit a large liquor or specialty beer shop, you'll easily find bottles of Hitachino Nest, Baird, and Yona Yona. Addtionally, a few Japanese-oriented restaurants and bars, especially in U.S. large cities, feature some of the nation's microbrews
Now, a few representative Japanese brands are making their way to Britain.
Number One Drinks Company, which has been exporting British craft beer to Japan, will begin selling Japanese brews in the UK. The company, which began business by importing smaller Japanese whiskey brands, will sell beer from three Japanese micros: Baird, Minoh, and Brimmer.
