…Okhotsk is a blue beer?


Okhotsk is a recently released Japanese beer from a company called Abashiri that’s actually brewed to be blue. (You may remember Abashiri from the milk + beer combo called Bilk.)

This isn’t the first time they’ve crafted oddly colored beers either, as they also have a Hamanasu Draft that pours red, and a Shiretoko Draft that pours green.


…Beer + Milk = Bilk?


Bilk, a combination of beer and milk, was conceived of by the son of a liquor store manager after watching dairy firms throw out huge amount of surplus milk. The low-malt beer reportedly has “a fruity flavor that its brewers hope will be popular among women”. Mmmm… cow beer.
