Frequently Asked Questions

What is Warugaki Beer?

Warugaki Beer is a non-alcoholic powdered Japanese beer candy derived from fruit juice, caramel color and malt extract. You simply empty the powder from the sachet into a glass, add 120 ml / 4 oz of cold water (or soda water if you want some bubbles) and mix it. 

Once properly mixed, the resulting drink froths up to mimic the look of beer — including the beer head — while bearing a sweet, refreshing non-alcoholic taste. It’s the perfect sweet treat for kids or for any adult who likes the look of beer but may not care for the taste.

What Does “Warugaki” Mean?

Warugaki Beer was crafted to create a playful, inclusive experience for children during family gatherings and social events. While adults get to enjoy their alcoholic beverages, kids can pretend to take part with their own cup of Waraguki Beer. 

The beer candy doubles as a gag, causing adults to do a double-take when they see a child enjoying a drink that looks almost identical to the real thing!

The comical spirit of the drink is reflected in its name, with "Warugaki" translating to "Naughty Kid."

Delicious Japanese Beer Candy and Powder

Warugaki Beer offers a delicious flavor profile that both children and adults can enjoy. While it bears the look of beer, the taste itself is reminiscent of sweet white grapes.

It has a shelf life of approximately 18 months, giving your kids (or you) plenty of time to enjoy it!
