You may notice that I haven’t been posting things too much lately. I took a break and am traveling to Tokyo and The Philippines with my husband as a honeymoon. It is possible that I might end up writing blogs as I go and posting them from the app on my phone. But I am going to assume that my data connection will be horrible and will most likely wait until I get back to post anything.
With any luck, I will get a chance to try some craft beers in Japan (also known as 地ビール (jibiiru)) and let my readers know if any of the Japanese IPAs stack up to the IPAs I am used to in the USA. I also hope to sample the craft beers in The Philippines, although the craft beer scene is not as developed as Japan’s so I probably will not be able to get much craft beer while I am there. Plus the cost of craft beers in The Philippines, I’ve read it might be 10x as much as the mass produced beers, might prevent me from writing about many things. I am also quite the cheap-ass and would rather drink four or five San Miguel beers if the craft beers are that much more expensive. After all, they aren’t horrible, they are just pilsners.
Please keep an eye out around March 17 and 18 of 2014 for some beer posts from my travels. One way or another I will try to share with you some juicy stories, even if they don’t involve delicious IPAs. Perhaps a crazy night of drinking San Miguel beers in The Philippines will be more interesting to read about than the local craft beers.
