Hi no Tani Kogen Beer is a craft beer brewery located in Mie, Japan. They are also sometimes called Fire Valley Beer as well, though since 2015, their beers have been progressively marketed under the Japanese name. It’s part of the Mizawa resort, that first opened in 1954, with the brewery itself opening in July 1998. The brewery came about when the resort owner travelled to the USA on holiday and saw the increasing range of craft beers and thought was amazed by the pale ales found over there. The owner came back to Japan and was intent on opening ad brewery that could make similar tasting beers to those found in America. Hi no Tani Kogen Beer also uses locally sourced natural spring water from the area in all of their beers.
