Expanded beer list at Maido Essential Japanese.

PC is happy to pass along the following note from David R. Pierce, original Bluegrass Brewing Company brewmaster, who posted it at the Louisville Restaurants Forum.

For Robin Garr's complete review of the restaurant, go to Maido Essential Japanese.


My wife and I had a very tasty meal at Maido last night. Sake Slinger Jim Huie has expanded/reworked Maido's beer list. The new list reminds me of Rich O's (circa 1992), short, diverse and very well thought out.

Jim has added my favorite German lager (and I'm a hoppy ale guy), Kostritzer Schwarzbier, to his draft line-up.

The complete list follows:

Draft: Kostritzer Schwarzbier, Grant's Perfect Porter, Rogue American Amber, Kronnenbourg 1664, BBC APA, BBC Nut Brown

Bottled Beers: Epherme (Unibroue - Canada), McEwan's Scotch Ale, Bell's Amber Ale, Hoppus Maximus (Thirsty Dog), Rogue Oregon Golden, Left Hand Milk Stout, Grant's Mandarin Hefeweizen, Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, Bitburger (Bitte ein Bit) Pilsner, Aspen Edge, A-B World Select

Dinner Bottles to share (750ml. range): Rogue Morimoto Imperial Pilsner, Rogue Morimoto Soba Ale (a crisp buckwheat ale), Talon Barleywine (Mendocino Brewing Co.'s 11% ABV monster), Kirin Ichiban, Asahi Super Dry

Maido always has had the most complete range of Sake in the city, and now it has a beer list to match.
