A new limited collaboration beer with Gorilla Brewing from Busan, Korea, “GREATEST NEIGHBOUR,” will be released on March 27th, 2020.
Despite the difficult diplomatic relationship between Japan and South Korea, we decided to collaborate through beer with the common goal of growing the industry and exciting beer fans.
“GREATEST NEIGHBOUR” was brewed with laurel leaves, the material that makes up the laurel wreath, a symbol of victory and glory for the Olympic games. This collaboration beer is meant to symbolize passing the baton from the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games to the Tokyo Olympics. As the base recipe of this beer comes from our Tokyo White, a Wheat Saison, the bottle’s label features a unique white gorilla wearing a laurel wreath. Please grab it when you find it at a store near you and enjoy the refreshing flavor of this laurel saison.
Gorilla Brewing, an up-and-coming craft brewery established in Busan, South Korea in 2015, exports their award winning, high-quality beers to 12 countries around the globe. A rising star at the Asia Beer Championship in 2019, their tasty beers are well worth keeping an eye out for.
