Saito Saketen is both a bricks-and-mortar shop and an online store, based in Otawara, in Tochigi, Japan. While it primarily specialises in sake, however, it does partake in the selling of alcohol, with its focus being on craft beer. The selection of craft beer encompasses both domestic and imports, though there is a heavy leaning towards the former. Thankfully, Saito Saketen uses an off-the-shelf online store so no awkward navigation around Rakuten or Amazon to buy their goods.
Though they are based in Tochigi, the range of domestic beers is also impressive, with some of the smaller craft breweries from across Japan being represented. On recent purchases, we’ve come across beers West Coast Brewing, Be Easy Brewing, Two Rabbits, and Nomcraft, as well as some of the larger craft beer breweries in the form of Ise Kadoya, Y Market Brewing, and Kyoto Brewing Company. All of the beers are stored in refrigerated units.
Payment options include credit card, pay at convini, bank transfer, and the famed pay on delivery with all deliveries being sent chilled by default. Shipping varies a lot depending on whether you ship chilled, or you choose the non-chilled version to save some money. It is also based on how many beers you order as well.
