Drunken Ramblings #23: Keep It Clean!

I have to say, I am a little bit guilty of this myself. Get home from a long day of work, a hot summer’s day and been out in the garden all day, or perhaps just wanting a quick beer. You grab a glass out of the cupboard, cracking open a cold beer, and drink. Then all of a sudden …

Best of Bunch: Views

In the long six years that BeerTengoku that has been around, we’ve clocked up over 330 visits to bars across Japan – only covering about one-quarter of what is out there. It’s a long way to go, and at this rate, will take us another 18 years of drinking, cycling, and travelling on trains, planes, and automobiles to get to …
