The pub with no beer... or supermarket at least...

At the same time as natto, fermented beans, gradually begins returning to the shelves - limit one pack per customer - beer seems to be in short supply.  Apparently there were beer factories damaged in the earthquake.... though there are many beer factories across Japan.  It doesn't seem to be restricted to a particular brand.  Perhaps the warm days has also lead to higher consumption with hanami parties... I'm sure I'll survive.

(for anyone unfamiliar with the enviable depth and breadth of Australian culture...this is a youtube link to Slim Dusty's Pub with no beer)
