「Cheers to Support」"Cheers" with beers to "Cheer up" each other
“Cheers to Support”was named with a wish for people to “cheer”up each other to overcome the COVID-19 crisis by purchasing beer and have “Cheers!”time.

The Japanese government decided to lift the state of emergency and restarted the economical activities. On the other hand,vulnerable populations such as refugees and persons with disabilities (PWDs) still need continuous support.
In Japan, in spite of the significant needs of sanitary goods such as masks, sanitizers and gloves in home nursing services and welfare facilities for persons with disabilities (PWDs), it may often be overlooked.
In the world, Refugee camps are often overcrowded and suffer from poor hygiene condition. If one person becomes infected, it could cause a rapid epidemic in the area. AAR Japan has been implementing hygiene education in a refugee camp in Bangladesh where a lot of people fled from Myanmar and also in Pakistan as its health care system is not strong.
You can choose to whom you want to give your support
We prepare two kinds of support set. One support set include domestic brewed "Far Yeast" and refreshing beers for the support of domestic PWDS. The other set include overseas brewed "KAGUA" and strong taste beers for the support of overseas refugees.
Activity report of the support to people in the fight against the COVID-19 crisis can be seen on AAR Japan web site (https://www.aarjapan.gr.jp). Please check the website to understand the background of people facing COVID-19 crisis and how your support could be used for people.
AAR Japan discriminates against no one based on their political views, or religious belief and delivers aid to the most affected in an impartial manner. Far Yeast Brewing agree with AAR's policy and hope to send gratitude and kindness messages to the world.
