A saké brewing enterprise since 1872, Kumazawa Shuzo began brewing beer in 1996, naming the brand after the Shonan coastal region where the brewery is located. Quality has always been high, and Shonan has garnered many international awards over the past decade.


beer style: Schwarzbier
alcohol content: 5% ABV

Surprisingly dry and drinkable for such a dark, richly flavored beer, Liebe is an award-winning lager of superior depth and complexity.

Weizen Bock

beer style: Strong Weizenbier
alcohol content: 7% ABV

Superb body, aroma, and balance for a high-alcohol beer, though it could be considered a bit staid by some.
