A good beer and a good book

Another day goes by too quickly in Morioka. So I purposefully headed out to the Aeron Standard Diner and Bar for a local beer and maybe a conversation or two with the local patrons.

Maybe I need to lower my expectations a bit about the likelihood of striking  up a chat. I am so glad I took my book to read – just as a fall back, of course. Got 50 pages read which says a lot about conversations. Enjoyed the two Baeren Classics though! Aeron is a small place with a nice vibe, good selection of food, and friendly staff.

Next evening after another big day, this time I am intent on reading another 75 pages without interruption from those pesky conversationalists. Two more Baeren Classics, this time at the little Baeren pub in the basement of JR Morioka Station. Nice. Only got 64 pages read though.

Baeren is a micro-brewery in Morioka specialising in German style beer. Baeren was recommended by Meg, a Morioka blogger, so I thought I would give it a try. Goes well with books.

    Hello, TonyJ2,
    It’s so interesting to read about Morioka in your blog.
    If you’re going to stay in Morioka on August 1st, don’t miss “Sansa Odori” dancing festival!

      These few stories about Morioka are from April 2016. I will be passing through Morioka at the end of August. I am going to Kamaishi to meet people at Unosumai to discuss the earthquake and tsunami impact on Kamaishi Higashi Junior High School – the ‘Kamishi Miracle’
