One guess as to where Abashiri Blue Beer comes from. Hint: not Smurf Village, and not outer space. Which leaves only one other logical choice, right? Yep: Japan.
If an American brewery wanted to turn some beer blue, what would they do? Get some blue chemicals. Food coloring. Ballpoint pens. A generous helping of Heisenberg especiale. But the Japanese, and Abashiri in particular, eschew shortcuts and meth here by cooking their brew to a perfectly aquamarine hue using only naturally occurring substances and processes. A combination of blue seaweed, locally grown flowers, and water funneled in from melted icebergs in the Sea of Okhotsk marinade and ferment with hops to generate this unique, pristine, ouch-someone-got-frostbite-looking glass of lager.
