Brewery Information

Kita Shuzo

Brewery located in Kinki

Ikedacho, Higashiomi-shi, Shiga

We boast a history of close to 200 years, having been founded in 1820. We cherish Japan’s ancient traditions while incorporating a spirit of creativity and change into our brewing. Kirakucho, our signature brew, gets its name from three Chinese characters that convey our desire that customers be Happy, experience Enjoyment, and live Long. We select the finest ingredients and brewing methods and use a carefully controlled aging process to bring out the umami flavor of the rice and produce a pleasant balance of sweetness of acidity, with a distinctive finish.
