  Good Beer Week at Kumo - A beer and sake night with Hitachino Brewers  

Kiuchi's 190 years of Brewing History

The beginning The Kiuchi Brewery was established in 1823 by Kiuchi Gihei, the headman of Kounosu village. His family was collecting rice from farmers as land taxes for the Mito Tokugawa family.

He began his sake brewery with the idea of using the remaining rice stocks in the warehouse.

In 1996, Kiuchi started beer brewing, naming the brand
"HITACHINO NEST BEER" with unique owl character logo.

Over the years, Kiuchi Brewery has gained attention in Japan and worldwide by winning awards at numerous world beer competitions.

Join Mr Kiuchi and Kumo owner and official Sake Samurai Andre Bishop for an immersive evening of great beer and sake matched with Kumo's award winning food.

Limited tickets - do not miss out on this unique closing event of Good Beer Week.

152 Lygon Street
Brunswick East

$99 per person - dinner matched with beer & sake
