Echigo Brewery (Echigo Biiru-en): The Best Beer in Japan
The scenery is delightful.
The food is excellent.
And the beer is the best I've ever had. They
serve a lot of varieties and overall this is simply a really fun place to spend a few hours drinking fine beer and indulging.
I'm not a regular beer drinker, because I usually feel most beers are not worth wasting my time on. A good beer is truely much more than just a common drink that everyone guzzles down without regard to what
they are drinking. The beer here is to be savored.
This is the special place to take those friends you really like.
On occassion, the have live music (Celtic, instrumental, something of that kind) adding to the ambience.
Favorite Dish: I love the blue cheese with maple syrup on toast. It's great.
If they don't have that at the time, go for the cheese plater and the smoked salmon dish.
