Sapporo Clock Tower:A Famous Place of Sapporo
Since the second half of 1800s, Sapporo Breweries has kept brewing beer. Without mentioning about them, the history of Japanese beer cannot be worth confiding in. Now their head office is in Tokyo not in Sapporo, that aside, there is beer they has brewed and developed only in Hokkaido since 1985. It is Sapporo Classic.

Sapporo Classic 500ml
Alcohol: Five
Speaking of 1985, the main attraction of Nintendo, Super Mario Brothers was released in 1985. From the above, it might be easier for you to feel how long they have kept developing only in Hokkaido.

Its unique characteristic is still to be manufactured by HK-MV: Hochkurzmaischverfahren and it copes with both being quaffable and deeper flavor which is because of using just hops and malt.

In German, Hoch means high temperature and Kurz means short. HK-MV is a German ancient brewing method. With high temperature processing for a short time; a little less than two hours, they make it cleared and delicious. It is never overlooked to compromise the ingredients because it is necessary to make use of fine malt whose enzymatic activity is strong.

By the way, Fine Aroma Hop is a kind of hops they have employed. It smells gentle and refined, and tastes a little bitter.

They have politely kept brewing Sapporo Classic in a factory of Sapporo Breweries in Eniwa, Hokkaido, for a little less than 30 years.

Originally, Sapporo Breweries had developed in Hokkaido because of being convenient for supplying ingredients. Regionally unique beer, the taste of Sapporo Classic, has kept shining like some star printed on its label.
