It’s apple pressing season, so fresh apple cider from the neighbor’s trees. I pressed this juice about 15 minutes before we tried it. Once I fill this jar, I’m making another batch of hard cider.

what's that sapporo? is it special edition?

I just picked up a bunch of japanese beer at the local japanese market.
I’m not much of an expert on Japanese beer, so I don’t know. To be honest, I only discovered their long history of making beer, because I lived there for a couple of years. I know this can is different from what one normally associates with Sapporo, but I believe it’s called black label.

Of those you have, I found Orion to be a very pleasant surprise. As in most countries, the really good beer in Japan can be pricey, however Orion was not pricey at all. After trying it, I was very surprised at how amazing it was. Needless to say, I ended up drinking it regularly.

Thats actually my favorite beer. I found it at a sushi place one time few years back and ever since I figured out total wine or the local Japanese market carry it I've been buying. I am not huge on beer as it fills me up too much but when I do drink it Japanese is the way to go.

Alright, I’ve got my full gallon of juice for making hard cider with. The Campden tablets are doing their thing, and I’ll brew up some Maple Cider tomorrow for fermentation. :)

I’m much the same way when it comes to beer, in terms of how often I drink it. However, my tastes are quite eclectic when selecting which one.

I used to be super in to beer. Like i had to have the right glass and drink at right temperature and I would have really detailed tasting notes. But then i stopped drinking for about a year or two. When i started i realized i just didn't care as much but i still liked good beer. Then i kinda stopped being in to beer and now there's just so many breweries and so many things that don't fit into classic styles of beer i don't even try to keep up. And I've started liking lagers and cheap beer for their honesty and not having to worry about them they're always going to be good.

lol, that’s pretty funny, personally I tend to avoid the pretentious approach. I approached beer the same way I did cigars, wine, scotch, whiskey, shoes and clothes. I don’t give a lot of credence to reviews or critics, I try just about everything that interests me, throw out the stuff I don’t like and keep the stuff I do.

Oh man I live in SF and pretentious is pretty much everything here, from hipster beards, to IPAS to man buns.

I see these dudes always trying too hard to be into the trendiest thing.

The thing with taste is we are all different and have different palettes. I personally just like what I like. I definitely prefer lagers and stouts to IPAs, always have, will I drink an IPA here and there sure but I dont reach for it.

I am also not overly picky at events and what they have I take. At my house its another story, for beer usually keep Orion or something Japanese less known than Asahi and Suppro but I do love those as well.
