Beer Coasters
In this, the second week of this year's World Tour, the boys are sipping out of sake barrels in Japan.  Chris decides to stay in Hawaii, so Big Gay Scott travels with us.  For our Fermentation Conversation, we try Hitachino Nest XH from Kiuchi Brewing.  Toby strums away at a shamisen while sipping the Kawaba Sunrise Ale from Kaigen. Big Gay Scott checks out the Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale from Kiuchi.  Mike puts on his gi and karate chops the cap off a bottle of Baird Beer's Kurofune Porter.  And finally, Charlie joins Crazy Dave on the Shinkansen(Bullet Train) and try the Hitachino Nest Lacto Sweet Stout, also from Kiuchi. See you next week in New Zealand.  Kanpai!
