View Full Version : Sapporo Draft One

Does anybody know how/why Draft One is being sold so cheap? Have they found another loophole in the taxes b/c its neither beer nor hopposhu? or are they just getting the market by selling their product for a loss?

I think it IS happoshu. Also, it's awful!

I heard that they can sell it so cheap because it has no malt or barley or anything (ie even less than normal happoshu). Something like that.
Personally though, I think it's so cheap because they get it direct from the source - the ___ of the factory workers who make it. It's easily the worst crap I've drunk. I think I'll pay the extra 25 yen and buy Tanrei (kirin) or Namashibori (Sapporo, I think) cause they rock. My wife and I did an experiment by buying all the different Happoshus and doing blind taste testing. Tanrei and Namashibori were the top two.

I agree. Sapporo's happoshu is not so bad if I'd rather not shell out the cash for beer. I also hate to buy anything which is endorsed by that prick of fighter Yoshida!
