Today's craft comes to us all the way from Japan. Hideji's Chestnut Ale is a dark, smooth, almost syrupy, beer. The sweet, nutty smell is intoxicating (in a really good way). It has a low IBU and very high ABV so it's pretty much a good time in a bottle. Be careful- this one will give you a hangover. Currently available at 99 Park and I wouldn't be surprised if it's at Whole Foods or BevMo now or soon. Not even sorry I didn't wait to drink it before I took the picture (and actually this was Ethan's beer but it was too good not to share)!
