Matcha is best known for its bold color and antioxidant properties, making it a popular addition to everything from lattes to desserts and now, a green beer that's been launched nowhere near St. Patrick's Day.

This green tea drink is aptly being served at the Matcha Beer Garden at the Green Tea Restaurant 1899 Ochanomizu. In this beer garden, visitors will find three types of the distinctive Matcha Beer, including one that is an extremely dark ale and another that's completely non-alcoholic.

Despite having the look of beer, the drinks actually smell like a cup of green tea. By providing a range of healthy ingredients like vitamin C, theanine and catechin, Matcha Beer is a true fusion between the enjoyment of drinking beer and the health benefits of consuming traditional matcha.
