Our Brewing Philosophy
Gotemba Kogen Beer uses only the finest traditional ingredients sourced both locally and imported to create
each of our full-bodied beer specialties. We use exclusively the freshest hops and malt along with clear spring
water from deep beneath nearby Mt. Fuji! This, along with the best yeast to produces an exquisitely delicious
beer. The Bavarian Beer Purity Law from the year 1516 is not just an ancient tradition for Gotemba Kogen Brewery, we view it as the foundation of our superb tradition of brewing since 1995.

Our Schwarz is brewed using roasted hops for a dark tanned head with a slightly sweet character. Easy drink-ability for a dark beer and winner of a gold metal at the JABC competition last year.
Weizen beer is brewed from more than 50% wheat malts and has a pleasant full body. Our recipe is reminiscent of the southern German style, slightly sweet with fruity vanilla flavors.
Weizenbock is brewed from more malt than normal Weizen. Please enjoy rich and sweet full-bodied aromas of banana and vanilla with the satisfaction provided from higher alcohol content.
This delightful lager beer is brewed, in part, by using the local Gotemba Koshihikari rice grown right here in the Gotemba valley! Smooth, pleasant aromas with a crisp finish. This beer was a monthly specialty, but our customers liked it so much, we added it to the regular menu of beers!
