New dog in town

Scottish beermaker BrewDog launched its first Asia outlet in Tokyo’s Roppongi district early last month, The Japan Times reported on 18 March.

BrewDog is the largest independent craft brewery in Scotland. It is known for pulling stunts such as introducing a beer with a label depicting Vladimir Putin wearing makeup. The brewery also has made a name for itself with the strength of its beer, one of which—named Tokyo*—notches an alcohol content of 18.2%.

The Roppongi outlet serves 20 beers on tap, 10 of its own and 10 from guest breweries around the world.
