Welcome to the Orion Beer Festival.
Orion is a Japanese beer and the beer factory is actually located in Okinawa. Still haven’t been on the tour 😦 Anyways, this festival is pretty much a reason to just drink. There were tons and tons of people and there even MORE beer!
Before I moved to Okinawa, I never had an appreciation for beer. I used to think it was gross. Now, I love it and want to drink it a little too often for my health driven lifestyle. I give my self a little leniency considering I am only 21 and beer is basically programmed into a 21 year old’s DNA.
I know that some of the Americans here aren’t huge fans of Orion because it is a very dry beer, but I absolutely adore it. It’s crisp and light and goes great with sushi!
You know how I know that the Japanese are much more responsible as a society than Americans?
This beer festival was over at 9 pm. I know, right! We showed up a little before 8 and were shocked when the fireworks started and said there was no more beer being served. Talk about disappointing.
There was some delicious looking vendor food there. I had no idea what most of it was, but everything was fried!
