Craft beer brewery Far Yeast Brewing Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Kosuge Village, Yamanashi Prefecture, Representative Director: Shiro Yamada) that has been introducing beers full of originality from Japan to the world, announced the general release of “NIGHT WATCH PROJECT #8 Nightcrawler North East IPA”, a reproduction of “Far Yeast Nightcrawler” released in 2018. “NIGHT WATCH PROJECT #8 Nightcrawler North East IPA”, a reproduction of Far Yeast Nightcrawler, will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, December 23rd.
The “NIGHT WATCH PROJECT” is a project launched at the end of 2019 by a group of professionals in various fields who love craft beer, including brewers, fashion, graphic and architectural designers.
The eighth installment, NIGHT WATCH PROJECT #8 Nightcrawler North East IPA, is a reissued version of Far Yeast Nightcrawler, developed in collaboration with craft beer magazine TRANSPORTER and released in 2018. It won 5th place in the IPA category of the JAPAN BREWERS CUP 2018.
Far Yeast Nightcrawler was the first Hazy IPA brewed by Far Yeast Brewing, and it was a hit that sold out on the first day of shipment. Over three years later, the new brew focuses on double dry hopping and biotransformation to bring out the fruitiness of the hops in abundance. A result of continuous research and improvement of brewing techniques, this beer is of higher quality and more aromatic than ever. It is a crisp and bitter Hazy IPA with hop aromas of stone, tropical, and citrus fruit from Mosaic hops and Citrus hops.
※1 What is biotransformation?
Biotransformation is a chemical change that occurs when yeast reacts with the extracted ingredients of hops during fermentation. It creates new aroma compounds that never are from only hops use.
NIGHT WATCH PROJECT #8 Nightcrawler North East IPA will go on sale nationwide on Thursday, December 23. Our online store will start accepting pre-orders from 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 21 (shipping will begin on Wednesday, December 22).
Due to the nature of the style, the hop flavor diminishes quickly, so we recommend that you consume it as soon as possible, even within the expiration date.
