Here at the Grove, we love to hand pick the widest range of bottled beers possible from all over the world. One country we realised we hadn’t delved into yet was Japan, but now that has changed!
For your supping pleasure, we now stock 4 beers from Kiuchi Brewery’s ‘Hitachino Nest’ range. We have for you:
- Ancient Nipponia – 6.5% – 550ml – £10.50 – This complex golden ale is brewed with Japanese ancient barley (Kaneko Golden) and Japanese Sorachi Ace hops.
- Espresso Stout – 7.0% – 330ml – £5.20 – This strong stout is based on an imperial Russian stout recipe and is brewed using roasted coffee beans. Caramel, roasted, black and chocolate malts really give this beer a huge complex depth.
- XH (Extra High) – 8.0% – 330ml – £5.50 – Amber ale brewed with more malt and hops than usual and aged in distilled saki (Shochu) barrels for 3 months.
- Commemorative Ale – 8.0% – 330ml – £5.00 – A spiced ale brewed in the Eisbock style with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, orange peel and coriander to celebrate the new year.
