Japan Booze Blind: Nippon Craft Beer Festival (Part I)
Christopher Pellegrini talks to Ry Beville of the Japan Beer Times at the Nippon Craft Beer Festival
The “Nippon Craft Beer Festival 2010” took place on October 31st at Sumida Riverside Hall near Asakusa station and the Asahi building with that weird golden sperm flying on top of it.
Giant sperm aside, it was a great party that featured several dozen taps and a whole lot of craft beer goodness. The place was pretty well packed, but we still managed to interview some of the key people in the Japanese craft beer world.
The highlights? Good beer and plenty of it. Good people, too!
First up in this series of short interviews about craft beer and where it may be going in Japan is Ry Beville, a magazine publisher (The Japan Beer Times and ko-e) and craft beer insider who has a penchant for pairing good beer and good music.
The video is a glimpse into what’s brewing in Japan and where things need to go from here.
