A student of mine recently returned to Taiwan from a short trip to Okinawa 沖縄, and presented me with two cans of Orion Beer, a brewery based in Nago 名護 that controls over half of the Okinawan beer market. I've loved Orion ever since I discovered it on my trip to Miyako-jima 宮古島 back in the early Nineties. It isn't easy to find outside of Okinawa, but now I have two cans getting cold in my fridge, and life is pretty good at the moment. Thank you Vivian!
Oh, what the Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor Corporation could learn from the オリオンビール株式会社 when it comes to producing the nectar of the gods in subtropical climates!
