Beer of the Decade: Hitachino

Hitachino Nest White Ale

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…

    You were so right about the white ale. It’s just so good. Smooth and crisp and delicious…mmm. I need to go stock up!

    The question is: do you love it more than Bud Light?

    I think I will have one right now….well, technically it will be more than one since I roll big with a pint.

    I buy it by the caseload from Surfas in Los Angeles. They sell it about $2 cheaper per bottle!!! No kidding
