Located in a rather remote area of Northern Japan, Iwatekura has been distinguishing itself in recent years with a range of creative beers. They include a flavored ale with a striking caramel taste.


Brewing secret

Local oyster beds renowned for their quality are harvested for the oyster stout.


Caramel Ale

beer style: Flavored Ale
alcohol content: 5% ABV

The curiously accurate chewy caramel flavor is unmistakable in this ale aimed at female drinkers.


Oyster Stout

beer style: Stout
alcohol content: 7% ABV

The brewery revives this classic English style with a rich yet dry interpretation, minimal hopping, and only a faint hint of oyster flavor.
