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

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. They have Red and White Hitachino at YUZU on Fillmore and Chestnut.

        1. re: slurnik

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

        2. 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.

          1. 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.

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

              1. 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...

                1. 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).
