Mmmm ... Bilk!
The news is now 18 months old, so you may be familiar with bilk. But it escaped my notice and maybe it escaped yours as well. Anyone tried it?
Nakahara's new brew, "Bilk" -- a combination of "milk" and "beer" -- is about 30 percent milk. It also contains hops, and the production process does not differ much from that of regular beer, he said.
His shop started selling Bilk, which apart from a slight milky scent looks and tastes like ordinary beer, on February 1 after spending about six months developing the product with a local brewer.
(I'd have called it "meer," personally, but you know the Japanese.)
