Old line sake brewer Morita Shuzo produced beer briefly some 100 years ago for sale primarily to US whaling ships. One of the most internationally famous members of the family was Akio Morita, one of the founders of electronics giant Sony. In 1996, the company reopened a disused soft-drink bottling plant as a small brewery, under the old Kinshachi brand name.

Red Miso Lager

Miso is a specialty of the Nagoya region where Kinshachi is located. Only a small amount is used, giving the beer a faintly meaty flavor.

Black Miso Lager

alcohol content: 6% ABV

This newer version is made with very dark “hatcho” miso, and has an even richer, almost nutty taste.
