From Japan's most prestigious brewery, Hitachino Nest Japanese Classic Ale is a bottle-conditioned IPA, matured in cedar barrels. Chinook, Fuggles, and Kent Goldings hops are used.

History


In 1853 Koutami Kawamoto, who was a scientist, brewed the first Japanese beer.

In 1862 the Japanese magazine 'Taiyo' (which means Sun) published an article about the beer brewing process. "...sugar is changed to alcohol... when it seems to be enough, beer should be matured in cedar Taru..." - (translated by Miho Sugiyama)

Hitachino Japanese Classic Ale is brewed according to this original Japanese brewing process.
