Shiokaze BrewLab is a brewpub located in Soga, Chiba. The bar opened in June 2020, while the brewery itself is in the final stages of development. Shiokaze BrewLab takes it name from an incident that occurred when Chris Poel, owner and head brewer of Shiokaze BrewLab was working at Baird Beer and a wind came in, damaging, if not destroying, the hops, but the kanji used in the name refers to a sea breeze – an homage to Soga’s closeness to the sea. The BrewLab part comes from the idea of Chris Poel wanting to teach others how to brew and educating others about beer.
