Get that freshly poured beer drink taste even at home with the super useful and fun Beer Jug Jokki Hour from Takara Tomy. The original Beer Hour was a big hit and made pouring beer cans a cinch. Now the same team has turned its attention to that izakaya favorite, the large beer jug. "Hour" is a play on the Japanese word "awa", meaning "foam", in this case the refreshing white froth that always crowns a local fresh draft of lager.
First pour out a regular can of beer so that it doesn't fill the whole glass. Now just press down the switch on the handle and bubbles will immediately start to form, as the glass itself works to create freshly poured Japanese jokki beer foam. Just keep on pressing the switch to generate however much froth you like in your beer. The switch is even available in two colors, yellow or black, so you can really take your beverages seriously.
Yes, though in other less enlightened countries, foam at the top of the beer is typically seen as a ploy by mean bartenders ripping off unwitting patrons, in Japan, a frothy head is absolutely expected as a vital part of a beer's refreshing taste! And you'll be surprised, that first sip through the froth really does quench your thirst more, especially on a hot summer day.
The Beer Jug Jokki Hour features:
- Mug that creates foam/froth like Japanese-style draft beer head
- Yellow or black switch versions
