THE festive season definitely calls for a few extra drinks with family and friends. Some may enjoy egg nog and others fancy mulled wine.
Otaru Beer’s Dunkel Bock is a limited-edition Christmas beer and Niseko’s answer to a yuletide tipple. It’s refreshing but packs a surprise full-bodied 8% alcohol punch for extra cheer. Available at J-Sekka Café and Sekka Dining this Christmas (300mL ¥400, 500mL ¥680), Dunkel Bock is served in a special ceramic stein and is the perfect accompaniment to a hearty Christmas meal or an après-ski session.
