    i guess they might not be terrible/heavily-marketed enough for oh!sake, but there’ve been some quite interesting small-brewery beers knocking about at the moment that you could always check out. even just the fancy supermarket fare like coedo/yona yona/ginga kogen (their wheat beer is genuinely super nice). i don’t think many of them diverge very far from standard fizzy/germanic models, except by adding fruit etc flavours, which always seems such a cop-out.

    The reason we haven’t reviewed Coedo, Yona Yona, and Ginga Kogen is that they’re good.

    aw, i dunno, coedo’s kinda dull.
