Okayama’s Doppo Beer

Okayama Prefecture lies in a sleepy location in Western Japan blessed by great weather. This is perhaps the biggest reason the area is famous for its fruit, namely peaches and muscat grapes. These two types of fruit appeared in Japanese beer for the first time in Doppo Peach and Doppo Muscat beers, made by Miyashita Sake Brewery of Okayama.

Founded in 1915, Miyashita began brewing beer in 1995, a year after the authorities allowed breweries to be licensed to brew only 60,000 liters of beer annually, down from two million liters annually in the past. 

By the time Miyashita began brewing beer, they had already established a fabulous reputation brewing sake, and produced many popular varieties. It was only natural that the beers produced would be of a high standard. In addition to the peach and muscat grape beers, Doppo also produces a yuzu (Japanese citrus) beer, along with regular style beers such as pilsner, dark beer (dunkel), weizen, imperial ale, anniversary ale, a lager made with Omachi sake rice, along with a dark beer made to match grilled eel and a white beer to pair with oysters.  

The brewing team has made a wide variety of beers in the more than two decades of opera­tion, with many of them shown on their website although all of them are still available. Perhaps the best place to enjoy Doppo Beer is the restaurant they opened in June 2017, adjacent to their huge brewery complex.
