Favorite Things Saturday: Hitachino Nest White Ale
My friend Jill has begun Favorite Things Saturday for folks to share things, ideas and places they love. My list of favorite foods and drinks is probably infinite, but I'll start with Hitachino Nest White Ale. I discovered this Japanese brew at Buddha's Belly, an otherwise fairly forgettable restaurant. It's crisp, pleasantly sour and slightly citrus. A crumpled receipt with the name scrawled on it had been floating around my kitchen for over a year, but I never saw it in the store. Finally, on a recent trip to the restaurant supply store Surfas, I saw this little pink owl looking up at me from a stack near the check-out line. And I just had to take him (and lots of his friends) home.
