Originally a distiller of rum from Okinawa’s abundant fields of sugar cane, Helios branched out into craft beer in 1996. Their flagship product is a rich weizenbier, which goes well in Okinawa’s sub-tropical climate, while their Goya Dry is their most “local” and distinctive brew.

Goya Dry

beer style: Flavored Beer
alcohol content: 5% ABV

Bitter melon, the “national vegetable” of Okinawa, is used alongside hops to bitter this curiously refreshing beer. Naturally, it is ideal with pork-predominant Okinawan cuisine.
