There are numberless types of beer in the world, also in Japan. Worthless beers are, needless to say, brewed and lying at stores, too. Now, it is naturally we don’t wanna get them and we long for valuable one. Shiga Kogen Beer I.P.A is being so and introduced here.

“We brew for what we ourselves really want,” it is their mantra. They are Tamamura Honten that brews Japanese sake, wine and beer in Shigakogen Highlands of Nagano prefecture. All their beers are brewed by the name of Shiga Kogen Beer. Shiga Kogen means Shigakogen Highlands.

Every creator must have wondered like this. “How could individuality and universality be consistent?” As you know, individuality means, simply put, one’s intentionality. On the other hand, universality is the property of being universal beyond borders and times. Belonging to a nation in an age, we all intent, so it is pretty difficult for us to get universality.

An item cannot be absorbing without character. That is hardly supported on business without catholicity. Shiga Kogen Beer manages both of them. Shiga Kogen Beer I.P.A is a representative for the brand and going to explain how come.

I.P.A means India Pale Ale, a kind of ale. That often makes you feel bitter. As nearly always happens with compulsive I.P.A, Shiga Kogen Beer I.P.A tastes bitter, too. But it is quietly delicious for their trials and errors.

They use their home-grown hops, not absolutely. Not just hops, the beer body is also solid and takes the character tightly. In result, the I.P.A could be a perfect beer with character.

We found the key from the I.P.A. We firstly have to learn what individuality and universality are. Then, develop the individuality freely, not subdue, and control the personality firmly with catholicity. It makes us feel the truth to drink Shiga Kogen Beer.

Beer is beer, however. It is the most important enjoying without reserve. So they sell the 330 ml beers that come to 370 yen, including tax.
