Hop Kotan Brewing Information

Hop Kotan Brewing is a craft beer brewery located in Kamifurano, in Hokkaido, Japan. The brewery opened in August 2018, with esteemed brewer Uetake-san taking on the reigns of head brewer. Kamifurano is perhaps better known for the amount of snow it gets during the winter season, but it is also the largest hop growing area in Japan. One of the reason why Hop Kotan Brewing was set up in the area is for a possible 100% reliance on locally grown hops – something that in the past has been unheard of in Japan due to the extreme variety in the climate.
