Self service beer machine

Bumped into a friend whilst out wandering a few days ago and he took me to a little izakaya in Sangenjaya with this self service beer machine.

Couldn’t help but be impressed, especially the end of the pouring process where it tops it up with the regulation amount of head.

All that entertainment and only 200Y a glass!!!

Think I’ll be frequenting this place again.

(as an aside….still haven’t quite got my head around editing 5DmkII footage on a PC, codec nightmare of epic proportions, I would really like to do more video stuff but until I have time to sit down and wade through the pages of documentation and discussion online about re-encoding and bit rates etc the above video is the best I can do… shoot me, I’m a photographer not a videographer;-)

    Well, at 200 yen a glass I;m sure you can let the excessive head slide ;-)
