Hokkaido Beer Pirikawakka Logo

Hokkaido Beer Pirikawakka is a craft brewery located in Chitose, in Hokkaido, Japan. The brewery opened up in August 1998 close to what is now Shin Chitose Airport. The brewery takes its name “pirikawakka”, which means “clean water” in English, from the local Ainu language. According to the brewery homepage, the water supply has been voted to be one of Japan’s best though with the amount of awards given out in Japan for random events and occurrences, it’s worth taking this one with a pinch of salt. However, in 2009, the original brewery closed down, and was taken over by a new parent holding company yet they reamined consistent with the recipes and still do to this day.
