Is anyone else in Okinawa
« on: May 23, 2016, 08:19:32 PM »
I've been on island for almost 3 months.. I was hoping there is some other home brewers out here. It'd be cool to swap beers, maybe start our own beer fest or something. Also I'd like to find out where to get supply such as co2 and ingredients and such.

I was just 35 years to early.  My ship, the USS Juneau, LPD-10, was homeported there when on Westpac.  A wonderful place - good memories.

I didn't know beers were even allowed on that island... :D

My ship, USS Catskill (MCS-1), pulled in there a few times in '69-'70.

Yea we can still drink here, but right now it's limited to base. A lot harder to get supply's here, than it was in California lol. And I'm still working on a place to get co2. Just joined the association, wish i had done that a year ago lol
