The second launch of Off Trail “3 Funkeys,” a blend of three different barrel aged beers, will release to market Tuesday, December 24th.

For the second edition of the new brand “Off Trail” that challenges innovative beer brewing, Far Yeast Brewing (Head office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, President: Shiro Yamada) will release “3 Funkeys” on Tuesday, December 24th.

Our second challenge blends Belgian-style strong ales, using Brettanomyces wild yeast and oak barrel-aging to create a distinctive, complex flavor. Each of the three components were aged in red wine barrels for eleven months.


After aging, each beer showed distinguishing characteristics. One had a Cherry pie-like aroma, another had a smoky flavor profile, and the third was well rounded and full of oak tannins. By blending these three beers together each characteristic found its place with the others, resulting in a well-balanced, complex Strong Ale.  This beer is a must-try beer for wild-beer and barrel-aged beer geeks but is also recommended for all beer fans. We will continue to challenge ourselves to innovate and deliver value to our customers worldwide.
