Kinoshita Shuzō
Kinoshita Shuzō is a small-scale brewery on the Japan Sea Coast side of Kyoto Prefecture founded in
1842. It successfully managed to position itself in the spotlights a few years ago by simultaneously
bringing in Englishman Philip Harper, who thus became the first foreign master brewer (tōji), and
introducing a revolutionary label design. Head-brewer Harper implemented traditional brewing
methods, such as the slow-brew methods yamahai and kimoto, and the use of natural yeast.
