Echigo Beer Co.

As an industry leader with beginnings as a brewpub, ECHIGO BEER is Japan's first microbrewery. Our goal is to popularize a type of beer not familiar to the Japanese people. In 2000, we won the gold prize at the Millennium Competition held in the U.K. as well as the gold prize at the Monde Selection held in Belgium. In 2009, ECHIGO BEER again won the gold prize at the Monde Selection in Belgium and won the second prize at the Australia International Beer Competition.
