New brews from Japan -- Ise Kadoyo
Ise Kadoya has made miso and soy sauce according to ancient tradition in a centuries-old wood building in old Ise for hundreds years, and now brews beer in small batches in the same traditional, natural way.
Ise Kadoya Brown Ale....$7.49 / 500ml
"After our success at the 2003 Australian International Beer Awards, our brewmaster, Mr. Nakanishi, set his sights on creating a beer that would exceed the successes of our Pale Ale. The result was Brown Ale. By using the ideal combination of four different kinds of hops. Wonderfully layered, Brown Ale has a delightfully broad range of aromas and flavors that compared with Pale Ale, is slightly more complex and richer. This complex yet smooth ale is a testament to Ise Kadoya’s continuous efforts to creating a better beer."" - importer
Ise Kadoya Stout....$7.49 / 500ml
"Heavily roasted black and chocolate malts are added to our Pale base malt to create a uniquely bitter and rich finish to our Stout. With a rich, coffee-like texture and a dry and smooth finish, it’s the perfect winter companion with any of our winter oyster dishes. And if that weren’t enough, it makes the perfect black and tan along with our Pale Ale."" - importer
