Tokyo, Japan


Vedett Extra White

There’s a record I keep in the bottom drawer of my desk. It’s a single of a Japanese singer and there’s a line in the verse that’s stayed with me. There’s no translation of the word, but even in Japanese it’s difficult to convey. It basically means “that thing.” When I was a teenager that record showed me where I wanted to go. In my middle age it helped reaffirm my decisions. Now when I open the drawer it serves only to fill my mind with doubt. I’m not sure if I still have “that thing.”


Pallet was a premium print magazine for people with curious minds and adventurous palates. Or put more simply, those who like to think and drink.

Pallet used beer, subtly, as a conduit to the things we love: interesting conversation, great writing, science, history, photography, music and more. Coupled with eclectic content that stretches beyond beer, Pallet was for anyone who is intellectually curious.

Printed on deluxe stock, perfect bound, and with a minimum of 144 pages, Pallet was made to be saved and savoured. It was created by a small army of contributors, stationed all over the world, and executive editor Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head Brewery.

All four back issues of Pallet are now only available digitally, via our friends at Readbug.
