International Stout Day: Hitachino Nest Beers on Kauai

Hitachino Nest Beer

Only one bottle out of the line-up calls itself a stout, but in light of International Stout Day I’m putting out the word that these Hitachino Nest beers were pretty good with the exception of their Ginger Brew (a bit too sweet and ginger-zingy for our taste). The japanese brews have been on my radar ever since spotting a couple types on a pub menu here in Italy, but they were all sold out and never restocked. The beer gods must’ve took pity on me because it wasn’t long before discovering that I could get my hands on the bottle with the cute little owl during our visit to Kauai. The Wine Garden in Puhi is the only place that currently stocks these and prices ranged from $5.15-5.70 per bottle – a fair deal for a international beer nut like myself.
