Umenishiki Yamakawa is a Japanese craft beer brewery located in Ehime prefecture, Japan. Like most craft beer breweries after the relaxation of the laws in 1996, they started life out as a sake distillery before making the move into beer production, way back in the Meiji period in 1872. They produce their beers used malts imported from Australia and hops from Germany. The majority of their beers are bottled and exported to overseas markets, with the USA being one of the biggest markets for them
