Pirates, Porters, & パチンコ

Japan.  It was 148 years ago, today, that Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry "persuaded" Japan - a handful of convincing U.S. warships - into opening their borders to the West.  Despite his less than noble tactics, North American's may now awe in wonder of Japan's clever creations, grand customs, beautiful cities, and amazing beer.

Thus, we indulge in Baird Brewery's exceptional Kurofune Porter.  Named after Perry's "black ships", Kurofune is a full bodied explosion of dark roasty-malt flavour.  So good that it is up there with パチンコ as one of Japan's greatest achievements.  At the Acres until 鎖国 returns.
