Yes, you read that headline right. The KFC in the Tokyo area of Takadanobaba is now offering unlimited beer, cocktails and wine starting at the low price of $10! The store last used this deal during 2016 when they ran it during the evenings from 5PM onwards.
The store itself is very close to the Takadanobaba train station while the area itself is frequented by university students from the nearby Waseda University. Normally the deal costs you ¥1, 600 but you get all the drinks you can handle for 90 minutes and all the refills are in the house.
The beers on tap are Edelpeis pilsner from Sapporo and Heartland from Kirin while Suntory contributes Premium Malts Kaoru Ale and Premium Malts. No Asahi but that can be forgiven when these other flavours are on offer.
There’s also a KFC highball called the Colonel High that carries a spicy flavour paired well with the house chicken.
If you’re in the area on a Wednesday night then you’re in luck as after 6PM, the deal kicks in and all you pay is $9. All they ask is that you make a reservation the day before and you’re good to go. If you want more info, here’s the details below:
Yep, time for another Japan collaboration. This time, it’s between alcohol manufacturer Suntory and the high speed rail train, the shinkansen. The collaboration will see twelve special edition cans adorned with artwork featuring different shinkansen with some iconic Japanese landscapes and scenery.
Yes, we’ve read about chocolate fries and honey lemon shakes and whole heap of other stuff that makes us envious of the different culinary delights in Japan. But for me, as a beer lover, this next one makes me teary. In a “I wish I was in Japan” kind of way. Coming back to Japan just in time for the Cherry Blossom season is Sakura beer.
The beer is called Sankt Gallen Sakura and is being produced by Sankt Gallen out of the Kanagawa prefecture, the same group responsible for doing the same thing this time last year.
It’s said to contain 5% alcohol and contains flowers from the cherry blossom species of tree known as the yaezakura. It’ll set you back a reasonable ¥463 (alcohol is ridiculously cheap in Japan!) and will hit stores from February 23rd through to early April. Get drinking!
Now here’s something you don’t see everyday…George Clooney is starring in a Japanese ad for Kirin beer as we speak. Hollywood stars making some spare change overseas is nothing new but what does stand out about this short TV spot is Clooney’s ability to sound like Batman when he speaks with just one word.
