Yesterday I made a call for drinhks and information at Aoi Beer Stand in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!
Since the owner Naoki Mando was on hand I asked him a few precise questions which he was kind enough to answer!

First of all I learned that he had registered the name Aoi/葵/Holluhock and the crest as his beer label from Kunozan Shrine and the City of Shizuoka!
The only sobering about that (no pun intended!) is since that the city wants to include his beer in bottles in City Souvenirs Sets, Naoki found himself forced to produce his beer not only in kegs but also in in bottles, meaning more work, equipment and costs!

The brewery equipment should be finally installed end of march and production should start end of April~beginning of may!

Now, Naoki will brew 6 regular beers:
-Pale Ale
-Belgium White
-Dark Lager

To that he will add seasonal beers featuring:
-Shzuoka Strawberry Beer
-Shizuoka Ornage Beer
-Shizuoka Kikuimo/jerusalem Artichoke Beer
-Shizuoka O Cha/Geen Tea Beer

Look forward to the next report!
