We are proud to announce that our special limited brew, Far Yeast Peach Session, will be released on August 8th. This environmentally friendly fruit session ale fits the summer season perfectly!
We used 430kg of locally harvested Peaches, picked the day just before brewing. Although the fruit was deemed “too ugly” for commercial sale, they were still packed with fresh sweet peach flavour. Rather than throw such good fruit to the compost heap, we decided to use them to create a wonderful fruit session ale.
Our brewery team spent five hours painstakingly cleaning and puréeing the fruit to be added to the boil. Please enjoy the photos below to get an idea of the process!
①Washed the peaches in water
②Scrubbed off the peach fuzz:

④Cut the cleaned peaches one by one
⑤Carefully removed the pits from the flesh
⑥Puréed the fruit using a food processor
These delightful peaches came to us from “Peach Senka Yamashita” (Head office: Yamanashi City, Yamanashi Prefecture, Representative Director: Ichiko Yamashita).
In addition to cultivating fruit, Peach Senka Yamashita runs a well-known cafe, “La Casa Della Pesca,” in Yamanashi City.
We also used their peaches to create other limited brewing products such as “Far Yeast Peach Brut” (released on March 2019).
Peach Senka Yamashita uses organic farming methods to bring out the fruit’s best natural taste spontaneously.
Through collaborations like this one, we will continue to challenge ourselves to create new and interesting products that will delight a wide variety of customers.
