Drink Your Blues Away


The Abashiri microbrewery on Japan's northernmost island of Hokkaido has added a whole new twist to drinking your blues away. Dubbed, Okhotsk Blue Draft, the water that goes into this emerald tinted brew comes from floating ice that makes its way south from the frigid Sea of Okhotsk to the shores of Hokkaido each year to herald the coming of spring. The secret ingredient that gives these suds its blue hue is seaweed, a true blue favorite anytime of year among the inhabitants of this island nation.
