Kyushu [Craft] Beer Festival 2017

It's probably the best time to drink good beer in Kyushu.

If there's one thing and one thing only that I had to list out that has fundamentally changed the way how I interact, move and exist in the space around me, it has to be craft beer. It's not just about drinking good beer, but sharing it with a creative community of brewers and beer drinkers that's absolutely fun to be around. Be it Singapore, Seoul, Sapporo, Kunming, Bangkok or even Kathmandu, the story is the same; everyone loves a good glass of beer and importantly, the story behind it. Here in Kyushu, with the temperature hovering at just over 25C, it's no different. 

I have here a photo blog of my trip to Fukuoka to experience my first Beer Festival in Japan since 2015. [In case you are interested, [HERE]'s the link to the official page. At the time of writing this blog, the festival is still very on at Hakata Station, Fukuoka].

Hokkaido Abashiri Beer from Hokkaido uses blue pigments in malt to obtain the color

Some got super emotional
