Japanese Real Ale

YO-HO BREWING COMPANY was established in 1996, as a subsidiary of Hoshino Resort CO., a Japanese leading resort management company. Its establishment was soon after the removal of the law, which prohibited the production of craft beer in Japan. Until then, Japanese people didn’t have “beer culture”. Almost all beers in Japan were “Lager beer” and people rarely knew about “Ale beer”. We started brewing “Ale” with an aim of letting Japanese people know rich and various tastes of Ale.

  • YO-HO Brewing was awarded the“2010 Brewery of the year”(Heavy Scale Brewery Section) by Japan Craft Beer Association.
  • "Yona Yona Ale" was awarded 2011 Monde Selection GOLD MEDAL
  • "Indo no Aooni" was awarded 2011 Monde Selection GOLD MEDAL
  • "Tokyo Black" was awarded 2011 Monde Selection SILVER MEDAL
