Japan Booze Blind: India Pale Ale

Here’s one for the hopheads: guests Mischa Long and Ry Beville road test three types of India Pale Ale.

The Japanese craft brewing scene has exploded in recent years. Not only has there been a notable increase in the number of quality brews available, but there’s also been a jump in the number of bars and restaurants where they can be found. One such venue is Devil Craft, a brew-pub offering an inspired combination of craft beer and Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. With fifteen taps and a rotating selection of beers from Japan and the United States, Devil Craft is quickly building a reputation as one of Tokyo’s favorite watering holes.

On this episode of Japan Booze Blind, guests Ry Beville (publisher of the Japan Beer Times) and Mischa Long (artist and bar room philosopher) blind-taste three types of India Pale Ale available at Devil Craft: Shiga Kogen IPA (Japan), Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA (United States) and Kobushi-Hana English IPA (Japan).

Thank you to Jason Kohler and the staff of Devil Craft for allowing us to film at the restaurant.
