Suruga Bay Imperial IPA

Style: Imperial (Double) IPA

Alcohol: 8.5%

IBU: 90

An extraordinarily complex yet balanced Double IPA that is dry-hopped twice with whole flower cones and then krausened (blending a small portion of peak primary fermentation wort into the beer at packaging). The hop character (bitterness, flavor, aroma) is profound – vast and impactful as Suruga Bay is deep and magnificent.

Imperial Red Ale

Style: Red Ale

Alcohol: 6.3%

IBU: 85

Perhaps the most popular and highly rated of beers among the many offerings from Ise Kadoya Brewing, this Imperial Red Ale has a plump and fruity citrus smell. With a soft but strong presence on first impact, the taste develops a warm richness in the mouth and finishes with a tight and intense bitter aftertaste.

Oushuu no Kaze (European Wind)

Style: Belgian Blonde Ale

Alcohol: 5.0%

IBU: 20

While KBC’s house yeast is a Belgian strain, most of their beers use hops from America, malt from Germany, and water from Kyoto, making for a unique and international blend. However, they have gone with an all European beer, starting with Belgian malt. The final product, Oushuu no Kaze (or ‘European Wind’), is a gentle balance of malt flavours and hop character with a nose dominated by KBC’s house yeast.

Style: American Wheat Ale

Alcohol: 4.5%

IBU: 19

KBC’s American Wheat Ale is packed with white grape and citrus fruit character from the hops and yeast, and is refreshingly light on both bitterness and alcohol. It’s a taste of summer with a message that says, “it is hot but all is well!”
