Founder & Managing Director’s Message
Far Yeast Brewing Co. is in its ninth year of operation, and we are looking for associates in various positions for further growth.
Since we are still a small operation, we only hire a few people per year, but we look forward to hearing from you.
Kosuge Village in Yamanashi prefecture, a small village rich in natural beauty at the headwaters of the Tama River, houses our production brewery and 700 full time residents.
Our team of 13 full-time employees and part-time workers at our production brewery is made up of, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Americans. Although Kosuge Village is located deep in the mountains far from central Tokyo, our work culture is very much international.
Most of our employees are from other locations in Japan and moved into the village or neighboring municipalities. Therefore, we are happy to share our knowledge about finding housing, children’s schooling, and other lifestyle concerns, so please let us know how we can help you relocate.
We welcome applicants with experience in the beer industry, but since the craft beer industry is new in Japan, our company is especially excited to provide good opportunities for people from different industries.
Our company goals are long-term, challenging, and exciting. We welcome people who are looking to embark on this long-haul journey with us together.
