Hitachino Nest Ancient Nipponia

Style: Specialty Brew
Kiuchi Shuzou Ltd, Ibaraki-ken Naka-gun, Japan

From Japan's most prestigious brewery, Hitachino Nest Ancient Nipponia is brewed with rare Japanese Kaneko Golden Malt and Sorachi Ace hops.
This "new" barley malt, a cross-pollination between the European Golden Melon and the Japanese barley malt Shikoku, disappeared a "relatively long time ago" -- about 50 years.
A few years ago, Mr. Kiuchi acquired 16 seeds from the Department of Agricultural History in Japan. He started to plant those 16 seeds (on a two-square-foot area!) about five years ago. After the first harvest, he planted all new seeds again and did the same the next year, and the following year ...

Last year's harvest yielded, for the first time, enough Kanego Golden Malt to brew the first batch of Ancient Nipponia.
