2021/02/11

Far Yeast Brewing (Head Office: Kosuge Village, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan; President: Shiro Yamada) introduces original beers from Japan to the world.

We recently collaborated with global hop supplier, Yakima Chief Hops® (Head Office: Washington, USA; CEO: Ryan Hopkins) to brew “American Noble Citra IPA” and “American Noble Mosaic IPA.” These two collaboration beers will be on sale in Japan on Saturday, February 20th. Pre-orders will begin at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, February 9th on the Far Yeast Brewing official online store.

Far Yeast Brewing began participating in the annual Yakima Chief Hops hop selection event in 2019 where we deepened our relationship with hop farmers and suppliers. The event includes visits to hop harvesting and processing sites, participation in various seminars, and hop selection and purchasing.

Additionally, Yakima Chief Hops is actively working with leading breweries worldwide to develop beers using new varieties of hops and hop products with the goals of verifying hop flavors in finished beer and obtaining useful feedback from valued industry partners.

When we received the proposal from Yakima Chief Hops to co-develop a beer using one of their innovative hop products, American Noble Hops™, we jumped at the opportunity.

After many discussions, we settled on the decision to make a classic American IPA.

American Noble Hops™ is a hop product designed to give beer the characteristics of fruity, tropical-flavored hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest, such as Cascade, Citra®, Mosaic®, and Simcoe®, without the bitterness of these high-alpha varieties. Instead, the bitterness comes across as mild, refreshing, and balanced, more like a traditional European noble hop*.

Beers brewed with American Noble Hops™ range from pale lagers to robust American IPAs, providing them with traditional, elegant, refreshing, and aromatic flavors.

“American Noble Citra IPA” and “American Noble Mosaic IPA” will go on sale nationwide on February 20th (Sat) and pre-orders will begin on February 9 (Tue) at 13:00 on the Far Yeast Brewing online store.

 

What is a Noble Hop?

Noble hops are traditional hops originating in Europe that have been used in brewing since ancient times and are known for their pleasant aroma and low bitterness. The four noble hops are: Saaz, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Spalt, and Tettnang.
