After our wonderful time at Yukichi izakaya Robert and I went to another Fujieda pub, this time Western-style, called The Alehouse.
Here we ordered a few bottles of Baird Beer, which is brewed in Numazu city. It was absolutely delicious. I had been to The Alehouse once before and I remembered that the landlord was very interested in whisky. There were many different kinds of drinks behind the bar but we couldn’t see any whisky. So we asked the landlord if he had any whisky. He did.
He opened a few cupboard doors high behind the bar and the cupboards were full of all kinds of whisky. He told us that in order to keep the whisky in good condition it is best to keep the bottles away from bright light. Have you ever seen a bar hide its drinks? What great service!
Unfortunately I rarely drink whisky, so I had another bottle of beer, Summer Mikan Ale, from Baird Beer again, just right for a warm summer evening.
