ANGLO JAPANESE BEER (ABJ)

Jul 3, 2019

“When we started the brewery, we didn’t want to be confined by styles. Allowing ourselves the space to work outside conventional parameters enabled us to create some really unique beers,” says Thomas Livesey, co-founder of AJB. That’s putting it mildly. Consider the Nagano-based brewery’s Momo Sake Gose. Livesey and company take a traditional German gose (a salty/sour beer) and mix in sake ingredients and local peach to create a distinctly Japanese beer rooted in German traditions. Now, AJB is also aging beers in French foeders (large wooden barrels) to develop some especially wild and funky flavors.

Where to try it: AJB is relatively small, but its beers can be found at craft beer bars across Japan, including Watering Hole in Osaka. anglojapanesebeer.com.
