Nikko, a small town outside of Tokyo is famous for its mountains and its temples, however when arriving in Nikko I was delighted to find it was also famous for its award winning brew, made from the fresh Nikko spring water. A Czech style pale Lager, slightly hoppy with a hint of graininess this beer is clean and refreshing and perfect for quenching your thirst after a hot afternoon around the temples. Nikkoji beer deserves a 3 pint award.
