Last year, as part of my Beers of The World Cup challenge, I tried to drink a beer from each of the 32 countries who were competing in Brazil. I struggled to source a beer from every country but still managed to drink some pretty tasty examples of fine brewing from around the globe, including a wonderful beer from Japan - Hitachino Nest Pale Ale.
I hadn't drank any of the other beers from 'the nest' since then but when we were in Wagamama in Birmingham last month, I was delighted to see that the restaurant chain have extended their range of Asian beers to now include Hitachino Nest White Ale.
White Ale (5.5% ABV) from Hitachino Nest Beer
This is one of the better wheat beers from outside of Germany and I would definitely recommend you try it if you get the chance. You might find the Hitachino Nest Beer range at a good independent off sales but if you're struggling, you can just as easily get yourself along to your nearest Wagamama and treat yourself to some authentic Japanese food and drink.
