Japanese craft beer online

Japanese craft beer onlineThis is an online store that can be found on Rakuten. It’s primarily a spirits store; however, they also sell Japanese craft beers, and also beers from around the world. They are one of the major stockists for the Japanese craft beer company Baird Beer, and you can pick up the beers at about the same cost as in the Baird Beer taprooms.

In terms of ordering, Sakenoyamaichi uses the Rakuten store front process, which can be a pain to use and navigate. First click on the beer, click on order, confirm you are over 20, then go back to the webpage, so ordering is a lengthy process. Moreover, shipping is a flat rate, regardless of how many beers you order, which ranges from ¥550 in the Kanto area, up to ¥1050 for those living in Hokkaido and the Kyushu area.

The customer service is excellent. If you order before 3pm, the beers are shipped same day, if they are in stock. Moreover, if any of the bottles are damaged during transit, then they will happily replace the bottle, as happened on an order in July 2014.

Overall, a good site to pick up some Japanese craft beers, but the narrow Japanese range may put some off.
