sake, shochu and sushi


This is the 8th Micro Brewery in Shizuoka Prefecture I finally have ascertained. So far, I have nine confirmed! Usami Micro-Brewery and Restaurant are located in Ito City, Usami in the Izu Peninsula where great water is plentiful!

Usami Brewery: Thames/English type
Ingredients: Malt and hops
Alcohol: 5%
Contents: 330 ml
Unfiltered and unpasteurized

Foam: long head, very fine bubbles
Colour: dark brown, rich colour
Aroma: strong, caramel/bread.
Taste: Sweetish attack, bread, yeast
Solid but light
Does not vary with food and stays faithful to first taste.
Drank very easily in spite of its stout nature.

Overall: A pleasant stout-style beer.
Enjoyable for its own sake or with food, however heavy.
Best appreciated at room temperature, although cold beer fans would enjoy it if slightly chilled.

  1. Dear Madam/Sir,

    My name is Richard Zrnik and I am collector of beer labels and beer mats from all over the world. I would be very pleased if some of the beer labels and mats also from your brewery company could reach my collection. I would like to ask if you would be so kind and could send
    me some of these materials. I hope that you will meet my wish and I am much obliged for
    the trouble you have taken. Please accept my warmest thanks.

    yours faithfully Richard Zrnik
