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!
Good Beer and Country Boys, Beer Haiku Daily and BeerMason, keep your eyes open!

Note that their front label is always the same. Check the sticker behind the bottle and the cap!

This is the third tasting:

Usami Brewery: Donau (Hungarian Type)

  1. Yes, had three of those. Think the Czech one was my fav. The German wasnt too bad but the English style was a little strange. Had them in an ocean side onsen on the East coast of the Izu peninsular. Fantastic.
