I recently received a few bottles of a special beer from my student. She brought them back from Hokkaido. The beer is a micro-brew made using iceberg water. It is called Okhotsk Blue.
The Okhotsk Blue Draft is one of the most unique beers around, counting a couple of unusual ingredients into its mix. Chief among its odd sources is water from melted icebergs that float to the Hokkaido beaches from the Sea of Okhotsk, an area in the Pacific Ocean near both Japan and Russia.
The soothing blue color, of course, isn’t because of the sea water. Instead, Abashiri Brewery achieved the attractive hue by adding blue seaweed into the mix.
This beer tastes good and looks very cool!
Thank you Michiko. This blue’s for you!
