TOKYO -- Join Earth, the Tokyo startup known for its cricket-based soy sauce, has concocted what it claims to be the world's first craft beer made from the same insect.

The so-called "cricket dark ale" will be initially served during a four-day pop-up event starting March 15 at the Shibuya Parco department store in Tokyo. Glasses of roughly 100 ml will be priced at about 500 yen ($4.50).
