Suntory Beer Factory Tour!
A few students visited Japanese Beer Factory to learn the process of beer making as well as tasting a bit at the end of the tour. This Suntory Beer factory in Kyoto is in charge of producing and shipping beer for the entire western part of Japan. Suntory beer won the world beer tasting contest past three years. The tour lasted about one hour and our group was really large. The factory was very strict and careful about guests' age and how they visit the factory. Minors and drivers were asked to wear the special badge so that everyone knew that they could not be served beer. After a couple of glasses to taste, a shuttle bus and train took students back to the city! Well, the entire cost was only $3.50! It was a really good deal!
