Coedo Brewery Information


Coedo Brewery Logo
Like other Japanese microbreweries, Coedo Brewery took advantage of the law change and started brewing beers in 1996, initially using the wheat from their local area. Unable to find a malting company nearby, they began to use locally sourced sweet potatoes instead. They also invited a German braumeister to stay and teach the Coedo staff his techniques over a 5 year period. In 2006, rather than using the classification of ‘Ji-beer’ (‘local beer’), often used to entice tourists to buy beer, Coedo began to use ‘craft beer’ instead. Their main line up consists of:

  • Kyara – an Indian pale lager brewed from six different malts;
  • Ruri – a pilsner named after the colour of a clear, blue sky;
  • Shiro – a hefeweizen that is best served chilled.
  • Shikkoku – a black lager brewed from eight different malts, including two dark malts;
  • Beniaka – an Imperial style sweet potato amber, classified as a happoshu due to the low malt content.
  • Marihana – Coedo’s take on a session IPA.
  • Red Rye IPA – A draft only rye IPA beer.

Coedo Brewery have also produced these beers with the help of other breweries:
