Black Tide Brewing Information : Background

Black Tide Brewing is a brewpub located in Kesennuma, in Miyagi, Japan. The brewery opened up in July 2020 while the bar attached to the brewery opened up December 2019, after a short period of crowdfunding from the domestic market. Black Tide Brewing came about from when James Watney, originally from Seattle, visited the area in November 2018 after hearing about a plan to open a brewery in the area. For those who don’t know, Kesennuma was hard hit during the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, and since that time, searches for “Kesennuma” brought up images of the damage caused to the city, rather than the improvements made since then. Black Tide Brewing, abbreviated to BTB, takes its name from the current that runs past the Eastern coast of Japan, known as the Kuroshio Current, that brings in warm water from the Pacific Ocean.
