BEER DETAILS

We stock four types of regular beers as well as some limited seasonal beers.

CORE SERIES

PILS

This is an authentic German-style lager that uses the soft water of the northern foothills of Mt. Fuji, drawn at an altitude of 1000 meters, to balance out the refreshing bitterness and sharpness with the rich flavor of malt. Three kinds of hops are added four times as needed during the boiling process, bringing out a fresh, floral, and slightly spicy aroma.

WEIZEN

weizen

An ale made with over 50% wheat germ. A masterpiece from this brewery, which overturns common perceptions of beer as sharp or smooth-drinking, featuring clove and ester flavors reminiscent of banana derived from our unconventional use of fresh yeast. The extremely fine foam created by the yeast itself lingers in the mouth with a silky smooth feel.

A smoky flavored malt beer created from malted barley smoked with beech chips.
