Andreas Neuenkirchen

Andreas Neuenkirchen was born a while ago in Bremen, Germany, where he immediately started writing bad sci-fi, fantasy, and horror stories. Transitioning to somewhat readable journalism in his 20s, he moved to Munich (still Germany), where he worked as an editor for print (passionately) and Big Data (reluctantly, yet profitably). Eventually, he bought himself a conscience and moved to Tokyo, Japan, where his wife is from. Today he identifies as a permanent essayist, frequent novelist, and occasional screenwriter. He has written 12 books in German, all but one about Japan.

Craft beers can be very interesting, downright fascinating even, but let’s be honest: The most interesting ones are usually not those you would buy in bulk to enjoy repeatedly. And yet, there…
