Powdered Beer! What a brilliant idea! Or not!
David Ewalt: A lot of weird and wonderful stuff comes out of Japan. Kaiju. Crazygame shows.The tanuki. They make good beer, too — I’ll put a mass-market lager from Asahi or Kirin up against Budweiser or Miller any day. But I wasn’t quite so impressed when I recently tried a Japanese powdered beer provided by my friend Ryan — sure, it was weird and fun, but as an actual beverage… not so great. (Pics)
