Anime-themed sake is becoming more and more popular, with several breweries creating entire lines devoted to franchises. Now fans of Girls und Panzer der Film have a little something for them, thanks to Iinumahonke.
The set consists of two 300 ml bottles of the custome brew, as well as a set of sake cups modeled on the turret of a Type 97 Chi-Ha turret and the inflatable duck head “disguise.”
Iinumahonke, like rival school Chi-Ha-Tan, is based in Chiba. It has been in the business for 300 years, and its ranch house offers udon, curry, desserts, and brewery tours with tastings of freshly-brewed sake.
The Girls und Panzer sake set is currently available to preorder for 6,156 yen (about $55.31). Preorders close May 8, and orders are expected to ship out in June.
