about the producer
It may surprise you that some of Japan's best beers are made by a 200 year-old sake brewery. In fact, beer and sake are not too dissimilar. Both are built on a mash of grain and water, fermented with yeast, and both are best enjoyed with a good meal.
Kiuchi - which still brews sake today - added their beer brewery in 1996, after the Japanese government overhauled a complicated tax law that for years had effectively prohibited commercial beer making by all but a few large corporations. Within a year they had won a Gold Prize for their Amber Ale at a competition in Osaka and haven't looked back since.
