Beer geeks in the New York City area who want to learn more about craft beer in Japan should consider attending Dr. Mark Meli's talk at the Japan Society on September 12. Meli is the author of Craft Beer in Japan: The Essential Guide. He is very well versed in the history of beer in Japan and the ways in which the craft beer scene there is currently developing.
Oh, and there will be a tasting reception, where you can sample several Japanese craft beers that are hard to find in the United States.
