Far Yeast Brewing Company is a Tokyo based company that was originally established in 2011 as Nippon Craft Beer Inc. In November 2014, after much deliberating, they decided to change the name to something that better represented their product. However, none of their beers are brewed by themselves rather Far Yeast Brewing Company is a phantom or gypsy brewing company along the lines of Mikeller. All of the beers from Far Yeast Brewing Company so far have been brewed at breweries both in and out of Japan.
