I said I’d talk about cocktails but first I’m going to talk about my favorite beer of all time, Hitachino Nest White Ale. It is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. A Japanese beer, I first discovered it at Yuzu, sushi restaurant in San Francisco (which is pretty good by the way.)
Hitachino Nest actually brews several beers, but the White Ale is my favorite. It can be tough to find–though Trader Joe’s carries it in some cities. I’ve also found it in some BevMos. I haven’t had as much luck at Total Wine.
Here is a little excerpt from the Brewer: A refreshing mildly hopped Belgian styled beer with a complex flavor of coriander, orange peel, nutmeg. White Ale has won gold medals at several beer competition in U.K. and U.S. This is definitely one of HITACHINO’s top-selling beers both in Japan and U.S. A great drink for the summer.
If you like Hoegaarden or Blue Moon, you will LOVE Hitachino White Ale. Trust me. And don’t forget your orange slice…
