No, its a supermarket called Daei. Its 4 stories, with the supermarket on the first floor and its own department store on floors 2-4 (including a 100yen shop, Mrs. Cheapy's favorite).

Heh, we have Daiei here in Hawaii, but they don't sell the gift-wrapped beer I'm afraid.

Kirin is my favorite J-Beer.

I've only ever found one place that sold it, A Japanese-National run Karaoke/Suchi bar, called Otani.

Does anyone know what Otani means?

Yebisu is very good, though I dunno about canned.
Stay the Fuck away from Orion, however.

Truth be told, I had considered giving away six-packs of beer I've made as gifts; I found that there aren't too many people that I haven't bought anything for. Perhaps if some bullshit secret santa thing pops up then I'll give some of my steam bear away.

Which also reminds me of the finest non-Japanese Japanese beer I've had; my neighbor a few doors down (who is light years better than me in brewing) made a Sapporo-style clone from scratch, but added gari (pickled ginger) to the wort as it fermented. Fucking fan-tas-tic!

at Cost Plus in the good ol US of A sells gift packs of beer. (better than Asahi IMO). So if you guys think its that cool then you can get some here. And after a little google search it looks live Bevo has them too (no suprise there, I love BevMo).Posted Image

Zymergy? That's amazing! I've been brewing my own for a little less than a year now. I'm still not very good. It's good to hear another homebrewer on here though.

heh, my Japanese teacher has told us about this,
apparently, they dont wrap christmas up in a bunch of sentimental religious stuff, they know damn well its a corporate holiday and they dont try to hide it,
they just give gifts

Beats me, but I remember going to a place named Otani once or twice when I lived in Columbus. Some Japanese restaurant on the first floor of a corporate building.

One of the Chinese buffets near me sells Japanese beer. All the sushi places also sold Japanese beer. Can't say I liked any of the Japanese/Rice beers much at all.

I normally don't drink beer because I think it's nasty. But I ended up downing 3 of the big cans one night w/ friends with no feelings of revulsion.

What does that mean? Perhaps I'm a closet alcoholic, I just don't know it...
