Has anybody found either a bar or store that sells Hitachino beers? Particularly Red Rice Ale or White Ale? Thanks!

    Barbacco - Hitachino is still listed on the last page of their wine list:

    and if you're in the Grand Lake area, try Boot and Shoe Service (sorry no link that's working for me at the moment).

      I was going to say Whole Foods, but someone already beat me to it. They also have Coedo if you're into that too. Mmm...

        Whole Foods in SOMA had it. I saw the larger bottles near the hot food deli.

          City Beer Store on Folsom.

          Saw the white one at Bar Crudo a while back (not sure now). Don't think they are that uncommon anymore.

            This site - beer menus -- is awesome for tracking down specific beers.

            I've also seen Hitachino at Jug Shop and at that liquor store that's at Fell / Divisadero.

                How's the food at Yuzu? Walked by many times but haven't eaten there yet.

                I know that BevMo on Geary has the White Ale, for about $9.00 for a 22oz bottle. I imagine that the other locations probably do, too. As far a bars, maybe the bars At Tsunami or Nihon _might_ have it, but I'm not sure.

                  I have bought the Red Rice Ale at True Sake in Hayes Valley (Hayes near Laguna). I believe they have at least one other of their beers as well.
