Konomi
Japanese Ale BACK TO OUR BEERS
 

Originally brewed in 2017 in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Japan America Society of St. Louis, UCBC collaborated with Masumi Sake in Suwa, Japan (St. Louis’ sister city) to brew Konomi 好み, a Japanese Ale brewed with sake yeast and macha. The Masumi Sake Brewery, operated by the Miyasaka family since 1662, discovered and isolated “Brewing Association Yeast Number Seven” the now widest used sake strain in the world, and sent Urban Chestnut their home yeast, producing a fruity and dry beer along with grassy and herbal notes from green tea.
