It is no exaggeration to say that Daisen is now the sacred place of craft beer!
I couldn’t join the event…Such people have to wait for a year? No, actually it is possible to drink craft beers at “Bierhogf GAMBARIUS” which a brewery is installed.
Recommended craft beer is “Daisen G beer” which is a pilsner. This beer is that bubble is creamy, and it is refreshing taste without habit. And, next recommended craft beer is a pale ale. The color is beautiful amber color, and there is bitterness and hops are working. Personally, I think that this is a beer of Japanese popular taste.
“Daiyama G beer” with 100% malt is made by Daisen’s underwater water, carefully selected malt, hop and yeast. It is very luxury to drink fresh beer on the spot! Let’s celebrate of Daisen open 1300 years, “Cheers!!”.
