Beer Overview

White IPA with Yuzu
IPA
Hitachino Nest’s most popular beer is their White Ale, so it was a natural starting point for this collaboration. We opted to add hops (as we are known to do) and made a white IPA based on the flavor profile of the White Beer. Kiuchi suggested incorporating the use of yuzu (a small Asian citrus fruit) into the brew, and we found the bright lime-like tartness perfectly accentuated the flavors of hops and the spicy notes of the classic witbier yeast.

Collaborator

Kiuchi Brewery
1257 Kounosu, Naka-shi, Ibaraki, Japan.
Kiuchi Brewery began making saké in 1823, but launched the Hitachino Nest range of beers in 1996. The Hitachino beers take influence from the western world of brewing, yet they retain a uniquely Japanese sensibility by incorporating ingredients and techniques native to Japan, such as red rice, ginger and cedar casks. We love the craft and quality of Kiuchi’s products and it was an honor to make some new friends during this project.
