Hoppy, non alcohol beer in Japan

Tokyo sightseeing
This is a car promoting hoppy, something of a non-alcohol beer, made in Japan. Beer used to be expensive about 50 years ago, and people drink hoppy mixed with Shochu, more reasonable alcohol in Japan, as a substitute for beer.

Beer is not so expensive in Japan today and hoppy is not so popular as it was. I have not tried hoppy yet, but would like to try it soon.

By the way, I took this photo by digital camera attached cell phone.

If you are shouchu fan, I'm sure you like it. Me, I'm not, I like beer better.

It is very interesting story about shochu and beer. If I went to Japan I'd like to try Hobby!

Your cell phone has good camera. My cell phone's a NEC iMode phone, it does not take clear pictures :-(
