Abashiri Bīru-kan information
Traditionalists should put aside all preconceptions and visit the Abashiri Bīru-kan brewery restaurant on the main drag about a 10-minute walk east of Abashiri station. All beers are up for tasting with brilliant yaki-niku (grilled meat) meals. Think of it as a Japanese version of beers around the BBQ, even if the beers are the colours of the rainbow!
You may also find the brews for sale in bottles in supermarkets and convenience stores in the region.
