Hitachino Nest Beer has a solid and established reputation in the United States and is one of the few Japanese breweries that has made inroads (along with Baird) with craft beer fans who haven’t stopped drinking foreign beers.
The 200-year-old Japanese brewery is taking that a step further and opening its very first U.S. restaurant San Francisco. An Izakaya (Japanese tavern) by the name of Hitachino Beer & Wagyu.
There will be ten exclusive Hitachino beers on tap, brewed specifically for the restaurant alone. For the Sake crowd there will be somewhere from five to eight sakes from Kiuchi Brewery, alongside local wine.
Mark another stop in San Francisco for international beer.
